Too Cute! Fairy Bread from Down Under

Soft white bread spread with sweet butter and topped with a generous amount of brightly colored sprinkles. Simple, fun, and brilliant. We know this is meant to be a treat for little fairy princesses, but we're pretty enchanted ourselves!

We spotted this idea for fairy bread on CRAFT, who in turn picked it up from the Australian blog "I Ate Brisbane." We'd never heard of this particular delicacy before, but apparently it's a well-known and much-loved snack for children's birthday parties in Australia.

We dug a little deeper and found some more interesting facts about fairy bread!

• It inspired (or perhaps was inspired by) a Robert Louis Stevenson poem by the same name. Read it for yourself over here!
