VanLue, 50, and her staff began decorating a variety of doughnuts with blue and white icing and topping them with sprinkles of the same colors. The same style of decorating is also used on Villa Bakery’s eclairs. The oblong-shaped eclairs are decorated like footballs, with fudge icing and white strips for laces and some are decorated with white and blue icing drizzles and topped with blue, white, and chocolate sprinkles.
