What do you get when you toast some bread, slather it in butter and shower it with a waterfall of sweet, colorful sprinkles? If you’re Down Under, you get what’s called fairy bread.
Fairy bread is probably one of the best foods to come out of Australia, and we’re starting to wonder why it’s not a staple in the good ol’ U.S. of A. too. After all, what’s not to love about toast that basically tastes like a buttery cupcake? Also, they call round sprinkles (nonpareils) “hundreds and thousands,” which is just too much for my little heart to handle.
