No party is complete without fairy bread and these pretty shapes will capture the kids’ imaginations.
- 10 slices fresh white sandwich bread
- 100g butter, at room temperature
- 125g (1/2 cup) hundreds and thousands
- Spread the bread slices evenly with butter. Use a variety of 5cm-diameter pastry cutters to cut shapes from the bread, avoiding the crusts.
- Kids’ task: Place the hundreds and thousands on a plate. Press the bread, buttered-side down, into the hundreds and thousands to coat. Serve.
You can make the fairy bread up to 4 hours ahead. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
- We use and recommend Nemar natural 100s and 1000s because they are made with natural colours and are less likely to cause allergic reactions (or hyperactivity!) in children.
- You can use Nuttelex spread if you need a dairy free option.
- Gluten free bread can also be used in place of wheat bread.
