A LITTLE BIT OF SOMETHING FANCY

So as you know I collect and keep magazine pages by the bundle, and thought I would actually try out some of the things from the pages that I keep. My first trial is Fairy bread, usually seen served at children’s parties in New Zealand and Australia. It was featured in the last issue of Oh Comely magazine, and what a success! Cheap pretty and super tasty, I can hardly believe I had never seen it before, the taste took me back to being a child when my naughty Grandma would make me brown sugar sandwiches, no wonder I had so many fillings, and have such a sweet tooth now!A mango, pineapple and coconut smoothie followed the Fairy bread, then later on I finished the spare room clean up, and started making a spring wreath, all in all Tuesday was a good day, not so much for the diet but my camera is happy again.The recipe for Fairy bread is so simple, all you need is a white sliced loaf, spreadable butter, and a jar of sprinkles, I also used some sugar crystals and a dash of edible glitter on mine as my cake decorating supplies are out of control. I am so excited about this simple idea and can’t wait to surprise my friends with some heart shaped fairy bread. Glittering white sliced is not really the best reason for starting a family, and the cats clearly have no interest in all my sprinkle fun making, so it looks I will have to borrow some children for a party!

    One of my childhood friends used to make these for her birthday parties and we thought they were fantastic. I haven’t had any since. I wonder if they will like up to my five year old memories…

    Oh yes, we used to eat that all the time.
    Our girls have purple and yellow sprinkles on bread which we have to cut out with the heart cutter.

  6. Oh my gosh. OH MY GOSH! Jeska, this makes my day! Truly. This is why I love your blog! I’m going to make this for my daughter for ASAP. Or maybe for Valentines Day. And then stand back and watch her LOSE HER MIND.

    Hi, I am Australian. Fairy Bread is part of everyone’s childhood here in Australia. I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren and Fairy Bread was at every party I went to as a child and my own children’s party and the grandchildren and so it will go on. It is a natural part of the birthday table as the birthday cake!!!

    They are made with the little 100′s and 1000′s (ball shaped ones)
    and the slice of bread is cut into triangle quarters. :)

    Growing up in NZ I didn’t realise that fairy bread wasn’t standard party fare world wide! Its so great, pretty, colourful and terribly bad for you :) YUM

    The fairy bread is soooo pretty. I think it would also be a great way to dress up sweet tea sandwichs. I wonder what would happen if you grilled it? Would the sprinkles retain their color? I might try it on what we in the U.S. call an Elvis sandwich (grilled peanut butter & banna, although, Elvis also added bacon). Thanks for the inspiration.

  13. Oooh food almost too pretty to eat!! I’ve never heard of this either and have no children to hoist it upon so may have to try it in the privacy of my own kitchen! I love your plates as well, they just look so perfect with this ‘recipe’ :) Also? Gratuitous shots of tigers always welcome xxx
