Since the mid-18th century, Änisbrötli or Springerle with an alphabet motif were baked and given to school children. Students who received cake with a picture of the alphabet were able to rejoice, for learning tasted so delicious. The alphabet was also considered to be magical in that it was believed that one could strengthen the learning ability of children with this symbol.

In this model, only half of alphabet is shown, probably so that the child is not overwhelmed. The goal was learn half of the alphabet by Christmas.

This mold dates from the second half of the 18th Century; it is now privately owned and has been in southern Germany. In 2006, Änis Paradise, our manufacturer asked for permission duplicate it.
