Hey You. Eat This Fairy Bread.

4 Aug

Nobody in the UK has heard of fairy bread. They’re all into dignified things like hobnobs. And scones.

Look at this delicious thing.

Ingredients.

  • White bread (it muft be white)
  • Rainbow sprinkles
  • Butter/something you can’t believe isn’t butter

Method.

1.  Spread a thin layer of butter or butter-like substance on the bread. Some people like to remove the crusts too but then you won’t get curly hair.

2.  Sprinkle the things on the stuff.

3.  You’re freaking done!

Easy, amirite? I think these would be good for like a Gay Pride picnic, as they are sort of rainbow and also it is called ‘fairy bread.’
