This is a birth announcement that I made for Iris. It is made out of pink en white little mice.
In Dutch tradition at the arrival of a newborn baby the guests that visit get “beschuit met muisjes”. Muisjes (tanslated: little mice) are a traditional Dutch sandwich topping. Their most typical use is on beschuit (Dutch rusk).
Muisjes are made of aniseed sprinkles with a sugared and colored outer layer. The muisjes are named this way because the anise seed sprinkles are shaped like little mice, with the stem of the anise seed resembling a tail. Company “De Ruijter” is the only brand in production of muisjes.
