'Beschuit met muisjes' is served when a baby is born. It is actually round shaped toast with aniseeds.....blue for a boy, pink for a girl, obviously.
The last time I had a chance to taste what literally translates as "cookie with mice" was in some cafe in The Hague. When the baby princess, Catharina Amalia, was born most cafes were serving 'Beschuit met muisjes', but usually you can't find it in cafes.
Nothing special, just a toast, but it was nice to learn something new about Dutch traditions.
