Required Equipment

To prepare and assemble your Fairy Bread Birthday Milkshake, you'll need the following equipment:

  • Blender: Essential for blending the ice cream and milk into a smooth, creamy milkshake base.

  • Milkshake Glasses: Choose fun, festive glasses to serve your milkshake in style. Use unbreakable glasses for kiddie birthday parties.

  • Whipped Cream Charger (or Nang) and Dispenser: These tools make fresh whipped cream to top your milkshake. You can buy one or both kitchen tools via King Whip's Nang Delivery Melbourne service.

Preparation of Fairy Bread

Creating fairy bread is simple and fun, adding a nostalgic touch to your milkshake. Follow these steps to prepare it:

  1. Toast and Butter the Bread: Toast the slices of white bread to make them firmer. Afterward, spread the softened butter evenly over one side of each slice.

  2. Add the Rainbow Sprinkles: Generously sprinkle the hundreds and thousands over the buttered side of the toasted bread, ensuring they cover the entire surface.

  3. Cut the Bread: Use a knife to cut the fairy bread into small, bite-sized squares or triangles, making them easy to blend into the milkshake.

Use toasted white bread and high-quality butter for the best texture and flavor. Ensure the butter is spread evenly to help the sprinkles adhere well. Cut the bread into uniform pieces for a consistent blend in your milkshake.

Making the Milkshake Base

Creating the milkshake base is straightforward and quick. Follow these steps to blend the perfect milkshake:

  1. In a blender, add two cups of vanilla ice cream, 1 cup of whole milk, one tsp of vanilla extract, and one tbsp of sugar if desired.

  2. Blend the ingredients on high speed until the consistency is creamy and smooth.

  3. If it's still too thick, add more milk and blend again. If it is too thin, add a bit more ice cream.

Flavor Enhancements

To make your milkshake even more unique, consider these flavor enhancements:

  • Chocolate: Add two tablespoons of cocoa powder or a drizzle of chocolate syrup before blending.

  • Strawberry: Blend in a handful of fresh or frozen strawberries for a berry twist.

  • Mint: Add a few drops of mint for a refreshing flavor.

  • Caramel: Swirl in some caramel sauce for a richer taste.

Topping with Classic Sweetened Whipped Cream

To give your Fairy Bread Birthday Milkshake a perfect finishing touch, top it with classic sweetened whipped cream. Here's how to do it:

  1. Pour 1 cup of heavy cream, two tbsps of powdered sugar, and one tsp of vanilla extract into your whipped cream dispenser.

  2. Put the lid on securely and shake well to mix the ingredients thoroughly.

  3. Insert a cream charger into the dispenser and follow the manufacturer's instructions to charge it. Shake the dispenser again after charging.

  4. Hold the whipped cream dispenser upside down and press the tool's lever to release the whipped cream, swirling it generously on top of your milkshake.

This classic sweetened whipped cream adds a light, creamy layer that perfectly complements the flavors and textures of your milkshake. If you live in Melbourne and run out of cream chargers, you can order nangs online and have them delivered to your door in less than an hour.

Assembling the Fairy Bread Birthday Milkshake

Now that you have your fairy bread and milkshake base ready, it's time to combine them. This step will distribute the crunchy, colorful bits throughout the creamy mixture.

Gently fold the fairy bread pieces into the milkshake base. Pour the mixture into your milkshake glasses, filling them almost to the top.

Decorative Touches

To make your milkshake look as good as it tastes, add some decorative touches:

  1. Start by topping the milkshake with a generous swirl of freshly made whipped cream from your cream charger and dispenser.

  2. Sprinkle extra hundreds and thousands on top of the whipped cream for a burst of color. For additional flavor and visual appeal, drizzle chocolate or caramel sauce on top.

Presentation Ideas

Presentation is vital to impressing your guests. Serve the milkshake in tall, clear glasses to showcase the colorful fairy bread pieces and creamy texture.

For a festive touch, garnish the rim of the glass with colored sugar or sprinkles. Add a fun straw, a slice of fruit, or a mini fairy bread triangle on the rim.
