I think I might have to make this for the nieces. I'd have to buy sprinkles, but I'm sure they'll like it.

It can be a learning experience about Australia.  ;)

Don't listen to everyone else.
The 'long' sprinkles are the go.
Hundreds and Thousands are absolutely horrible and are too sweet.




Just my opinion.  ;D  ;D

Sorry Jongirl, you'll have to renounce your citizenship. That remark is unAustralian.

Oh, and another terribly unhealthy snack:

Under the grill, toast one side of a piece of white bread.  Carefully butter the untoasted side, and sprinkle lavishly with white sugar.  Toast sugar side under griller until melted.  Cool slightly.  Eat.
Look out...

Hmm, didn't relalize fairy bread was Australian, gosh I love it! I take it to adult parties and everybody loves reliving their childhood!

I definitely agree with the freshest, softest, whitest bread you can find. Multigrain fairy bread is plain wrong! Even wholemeal will attract strange looks.

I melt the butter a little - 5 sec or less, in the microwave, so it's just softened, not melted. This helps stop pesky tearing of the bread.

Defo needs to be in triangles. Cut once or twice is up for debate.

As for the round balls vs elongated ones, I'm open to both! Round balls are visually more appealling as they tend to be brighter.

One last thing - the fresher the better, the morning of an afternoon party is fine, but if you make the day before the colours will run with the butter and it all gets a little soggy!

Hmmmmm

If you add a little cinamon in with the sugar and broil till the sugar Carmelites you get my favorite quick breakfast treat as a dhild.  The first thing I learned to "cook" when I was around 4.
