I just learned about fairy bread. Apparently it’s an Australian favorite for kids’ parties.
Fairy bread is just buttered bread with sprinkles on top. Ever since I found out about it and started looking at pictures of it on flickr and whatnot, I’ve been thinking about how I would make it. My cousin is turning two next month, and it sounded like a great thing to bring for her party, especially with my fresh baked bread. Yesterday I had to see how it actually tasted, so I cut half a slice of bread, buttered it and put on some pink sugar and valentine colored non-pareils. It was actually pretty good, but I think it would be better with a little different bread. My loaf was the second of a batch of dough, so it had gotten a little sourdough flavor. Now I’m thinking about coloring my bread dough. Is that crazy?
