Whether you’re serving up some fairy garden birthday party delights or simply looking for a sweet or healthy snack, these edible fairy gardens are sure to be a hit. Fairyscapes are awesome to design, create, and cultivate, but when you can eat them, too, you’ve taken your fairy gardening to the next level.
Try some of these with your kids or grand-kids soon! It’s perfect for a rainy day activity if you’re looking to keep the outdoor magic and natural vibes alive! We’ll look at some guilty pleasures and healthier options as well. Put your fairy-loving, food-loving heart to work.

You can follow the dessert recipe from Sunny Sweet Days, or you could do miniature versions of this in individual snack pudding cups. If you choose the larger scale, the Pretmanns Fairy Garden Swing Set would be perfect amid all the edible decor!
HAVEN’T YOU HERB ABOUT THIS?

What we love about herbs is that they’re very low maintenance. With a little sunshine and light sprinkle of water every week, these tasty plants thrive. The kids can enjoy the little fairy world, and you can also get some practical use out of the fairyscape. Choose whichever herbs you like. Rosemary, parsley, oregano, and chives will work! If the fairies don’t eat it all first, you can add some flair to your pot roast this weekend.
This Pretmanns Fairy Garden Corner set would look nice below all the leafy and towering herbs.
THEY’LL NEVER ASK FOR ORDINARY BROWNIES AGAIN…

Work in the kitchen with your kiddos, and whip up a brownie mix. You might choose to do a large display like Party Pinching’s above, or bake the brownies in a square pan, cut them up, and allow children to decorate their own miniature fairyscapes. Plenty of sprinkles, nuts, candies, cookies, and crackers will be used in the design.
BREAKFAST OF CHAMPION FAIRIES!

This is a fairy garden to get out of bed for! Decorate your stacked pancakes, waffles, or crepes with colorful berries, edible flowers, and whipped cream. Have your breakfast on the porch or out in the garden near your fairyscapes. Watch for a few berries to magically disappear when you’re not looking. Fairies love berries!
MALLOW! ARE YOU THERE?

You’ll need all the marshamallows for this delicious project: jumbo, regular, flat-stack, and even minis! You’ll also want to pick up some edible ink markers. The Decorated Cookie recommends a few kinds. You can also paint with food coloring. Make this one during the day, and after dinner, bring your fairy village display out for all to enjoy.
STICKS AND STONES

Break out the graham crackers, pretzels, coconut, peanut butter, crispy treats, candy, and food coloring. How amazing is this fairy hut and yard? And it’s totally edible. After you’re finished, play a little while and snack as you do. The Etsy tutorial is super helpful as you construct this natural beauty.

Cool as a cucumber. Wait, fresh as a watermelon? These look like fairy-size watermelons, but they’re called cucamelons. Aren’t they adorable? We recommend these for in or around your fairy gardens. You’ll have all the pixies in the neighborhood stopping by your fairy-friendly fruit-stand.
