In their flights around and about the English countryside where Lizzy lives in Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, Tinker Bell and the other fairies share the air space with a host of other winged creatures, including honeybees, butterflies, and — perhaps the most talented flying acrobats of all — dragonflies. Much like mini helicopters, these colorful insects are most often found hovering alongside streams and ponds. Or, in the case of this candy variety, sweetly perched atop a batch of cupcakes.
