The weekend of our arrival in Sydney. we were invited to our next door neighbor's for their 3 years old's birthday. Ah, my first taste (literally) of an Australian style preschool birthday party.
The party food:
- Sausage rolls, not something I would eat on purpose- unless I was having some kind of bizarre craving.
- Some interesting looking ring-shaped chips (which I eventually learned were of the meat-flavored variety-- we can come back to "Burger Rings" later).
- That gorgeous Fairy Bread.
Basically, Fairy Bread (I'm capitalizing it because in my world it should be a proper noun) is soft white bread with butter and sprinkles (aka- 100's & 1000's) on top. And in my opinion, now that I have mastered Fairy Bread in my own house when celebrating our 3 year old's birthday-- it's all about buying the right brand of sprinkles. They must be sweet, or else your Fairy Bread will suck.
This is such a lovely (that's my new Australia-speak coming out) birthday party tradition. How is it possible that Fairy Bread has not been discovered internationally?
I have found a link about Fairy Bread from an Aussie living in the UK. She obviously is also shocked that Fairy Bread is not a worldwide phenomenon.
Next, we can figure out why Starbucks hasn't started the "Baby-cino" revolution in the U.S. Their stockholders should sue them for negligence.
More on that later.
