“She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
"Winter is dead.”
~AA Milne, when we were very young
NOTE: I am away at the moment helping my mother with her treatment for lung cancer. I have set up a few posts to post whilst I am away as a special surprise. Some are new and some are reposts of old favourites that you may have forgotten, or if you are a new reader may not even have seen. I'll be back at the end of May, but in the meantime . . . Enjoy!
PS - I will only have sporadic internet use, so if you ask a question and I don't get back to you . . . it's not that I don't want to. It just may take me a while.

I know what you're thinking . . . She's completely gone "doo-lally" this time . . . off her nut . . . over the twist!!
I mean, come on . . . Fairy Bread??? I say why not! All over this country today people will be waving the Union Jack, cheering, and celebrating the finest piece of news and festivity since the credit crunch started 4 years ago!
We're all well overdue for a smile or two, and some royal festivities . . . so why not go a bit over the twist!
We here . . . Marie, Mitzie and the Toddster . . . will be glued to the telly all day watching a fairy tale wedding unfold . . . why not celebrate with cups of elderflower cordial and Fairy Bread, I say!!!
There are worse ways to celebrate, but I think this is just perfect! Oh . . . we may stog down a cake or two and perhaps a few sausage rolls . . . but the star of this party will be the Fairy Bread I dare say! And why not!! It's pretty. It's fun. It's whimsical and astonishingly tasty! Life is for living!
Just perfect for Fairy Tale Weddings . . . and little girl's tea parties. I think the fairies will heartily approve!
Cute nonsensical fairy bread . . . essentially just buttered bread and sprinkles . . . but something fairies, both big and small just love!
4 slices of white bread
an assortment of candy sprinkles
a heart shaped cookie cutter
dolly mixture candies to serve
Butter your slices of bread right to the edges with the softened butter. Cut out hearts with the cookie cutter. You should get at least two hearts per slice depending on the size of your cutter. If you are using a really small one, you may even get four. Sprinkle each cut out with the candy sprinkles and a good measure of love on the buttered side of the bread. Arrange on a cake plate and scatter the dolly mixtures around! Serve to some very grateful fairies. Don't be surprised if it disappears in a twinkle and you have to make it all over again!
