Fairy bread is sliced white bread spread with margarine or butter and covered with sprinkles or hundreds and thousands which stick to the spread.[1] It is typically cut into four triangles.[2]

It is commonly served at children's parties in Australia and New Zealand.[3][4] The origin of the term is not known, but it may come from the poem 'Fairy Bread' in Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses, published in 1885.[2]
