Did I eat 'Muisje' or 'Meisje'

Daniel and Maikel asked me if I ate 'Meisje' or 'Muisje' when Suzanne was here with her baby about a month ago. The funny thing is: the two words have almost identical pronounciation. Meisje means little girl, and Muisje is the the cake served here traditionally to celebrate the birth of a baby.

For sure, when Suzanne was here, she had both of them :). I had to pay special attention to not to say that I had eaten Fiona. After asking them to repeat both words a number of times, I managed to make the correct guess!
