Year Supply Of Fairy Cakes

Bailey with the letter YFor the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I’m having Fun with Fonts. Each day I’ll feature a few I like based on either the look of the font or its name. I’ll also pick a font to inspire one of my tweet tales

After there were a surprising number of X fonts, I wasn’t expecting to have trouble with Y, but there actually weren’t that many to choose from – a few more than X, but not many more. And most of them looked very similar to fonts I’d already featured, so it was tough to find unique ones to share. Although I’ve featured several with curlicues already, I really liked the curls and swirls in You Are Precious. I can see it being used in a story about fairies or princesses for young kids. 
You Are Precious
 
On the opposite end of the swirly spectrum is Y-Grid with its very precise framework.

You Rook Marbelous made me giggle because of the name. And then the design really does look like marble. If you are too young to get the reference to the Billy Crystal character, here’s a clip to help:

I’m not really sure what the name You Are The One has to do with the letters being partially formed by up and down arrows, but it looked different from others I’d shared, so it made the list. 
You Are The One
 
Today’s tweet tale inspiration is Year Supply Of Fairy Cakes. I totally picked this one for the name because the font is extremely generic. When I picked it, I did think fairy cakes were some special baked goods used to lure fairies out of the forest, but a quick chat with my friend Mr. Google informed me fairy cakes are actually smaller versions of cupcakes very popular in the UK. That was kind of a letdown, but I used the disappointment to inspire my tale.

What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How Yippy is Bailey with her letter Y?

Great idea adding that Billy Crystal clip. The precious font is just that.

Aw, I feel very precious. :) Fairy cakes. Hmm. I wrote a story about fairies once. Of course, mine were devilish little things with pointy teeth - good for biting people! lol

Yes! I totally have to have You Rook Marvelous and Year Supply of Fairy Cake. Only one more! I'm looking forward to seeing what you pick for Z.

I want a year supply of fairy cakes! I just like the name. It reminds me of the fairy penguin, which I only discovered a couple years ago thanks to the Boston Aquarium.

This month you've taught me about such an abundance of fonts! Phenomenal!

It looks like You Are Precious is the clear winner today. Thanks, y'all, for stopping by!

I actually like Year Supply of Fairy Cakes. It's very Comic Sans without being Comic Sans (because apparently that's a bad thing). And I love You Are Precious. I like the curly ones. (Gigi is my favorite font.)

Yeah, I think it's funny how upset people get about Comic Sans. *whispers* I kinda like it. :-)

I think I like Year Supply Of Fairy Cakes most. It reminds me a bit of Handwriting Dakota, only not as badly-drawn. Some of the letters are still slanted, but they seem more evenly-proportioned instead of messy and uneven.

My only Y font is a sans-serif font I downloaded last year, called Young. It looks very stylish and professional.
