In the city of Amsterdam, the cakes are sometimes referred to as moesselientjes ("little Mussolinis"); this name, which is the Dutch adaptation of Benito Mussolini's name, is rooted in the cake's tradition of being sold in Italian ice-cream parlours in Amsterdam prior to the Second World War.
On occasion the cakes are sold in alternative varieties, with the pink icing replaced by a different colour. During Koningsdag (the King's birthday which is celebrated excessively) and football championships the icing is changed to orange (the national colour of The Netherlands), and at Easter time the icing is yellow.
- The food dye used in Glacés, carmine (E120), is produced from female cochineals, a scale insect.
