Fairy Bread Christmas Tree


This fairy bread Christmas tree was my contribution to the kindy concert after party yesterday.
It was a case of, blink and you'll miss it, as those babies sure know how to down the party food.

This would have to be about the easiest #BringAPlate ever.


In all seriousness, the littlest Beach House Brat asked me if she was starting school yesterday afternoon, after the concert, as now she had graduated from kindergarten.  She definitely is a constant source of humour here at the Beach House, this Christmas season.

Just a quick how to on the tree:

Fairy Bread Christmas Tree
Prepare the required amount of fairy bread. (use buttered white bread, as wholemeal would just be too mean, although I thought about it)
Cut bread slices into 4 triangles. I left most crusts on and they got eaten.
Use crusts to form the tree trunk.
To form the star for the top, cut the tips off two small triangles of fairy bread.  Place one on top of the other, Star of David style and adorn your tree.
A small star cookie cutter, would work just as well.
This plate of food genuinely lasted all of 5 minutes, once it hit the table.



Go well Beach Dwellers

  5. What a clever idea and it's just gorgeous, Caro. I have a brunch to go to on Sunday where there'll be lots of kids. I think I'll make this. I have a star shaped cookie cutter and I'll use that to make the star! xx

    1. Yes the cooker cutter is definitely an option. Unfortunately I didn't have one small enough.

    1. Hi ya,
      The bread is buttered so it holds pretty well.

  12. Cute idea. The problem with fairy bread is that I could eat that tree myself! There would be nothing left for the kiddos. Then I would be mistaken for a big fat beach ball! ;-)

    Merry Christmas!
