Fairy Puff Ice Cream Toastie
Category : Food
The main draw here is the machine which makes this treat possible – a sort of toasted sandwich maker but with a domed lid. Somehow it manages to toast and seal 2 halves of a bread bun whilst NOT melting the ice cream that forms the filling.
Everything else is window dressing and here there was some serious ‘unicorn’ going on.
The bread was a riot of colourful swirls, the ice cream was bright blue, and the decoration was multi-coloured sprinkles.
In days gone by (and sometimes still today if you are lucky enough to find a traditional ‘ice cream uncle’) a scoop of ice cream in Singapore came folded inside a slice of pink and green coloured bread.
As a modern update, this rainbow ‘fairy puff’ manages perfectly both to hark back to the old ways and appeal to the inexplicable current trend for all things cute and fairy-tale. The S$8 price tag was a shocker, though.
And don’t ask me what it actually tasted like…
