What Even Is "Fairy Bread"? Izzy Wouters Explains

On the February 1 episode of Below Deck, viewers saw Elizabeth Frankini celebrate her 30th birthday on the job. While folding laundry on her special day, the stewardess muttered: "not a birthday." Despite Elizabeth's hopes, her charter-season fling James Hough didn't have a romantic surprise up his sleeve. And, the birthday girl was in some hot water with her boss Francesca Rubi. But, at least there was a cake! 

How to Watch

Though chef Rachel Hargrove didn't ultimately have time to whip up the chocolate birthday cake she'd planned to make, Elizabeth's friend Izzy Wouters came through with a "fairy bread cake." Which is ... what, exactly? 

In the clip above, the lead deckhand explains the Australian treat, which she says was a staple at any party she went to growing up. "So, you get a piece of really cheap bread ... and then you get butter, and you lather the butter on, and then you get hundreds [of] thousands of sprinkles," she says. "And then you, like, put it all over the bread, you dap it in there, and it makes like this colorful rainbow bread." 

But if you want to go "next-level" with your treat, Elizabeth suggests stacking the sprinkled bread slices on top of each other and pouring some chocolate syrup over the top. And that's exactly what the crew did for their birthday girl.

In a recent Instagram share, Elizabeth posted a photo of herself grinning while holding the well-intended dessert. After sharing the recipe as Izzy described it, the stew added: "Made for me in the crew mess ... it was the thought that counts."
