Happy Runeberg Day - Runeberg Torte


#1

The other day I accidentally discovered that the 5th of February is Runebergin päivä (Runeberg Day) in Finland, a day to celebrate J. L. Runeberg, and to celebrate Runeberg Day some people make a Runebergintorttu (Runeberg torte).

Since Finland is the home of the Pokitto, I thought I’d make a Runeberg torte in honour of Pokitto’s homeland!

…Unfortunately I’m not a very good cook, so I made some crude sprite art instead:

Here’s the same sprite scaled up a bit:

It also happens to be my birthday :wink:

Ouh Happy happy birthday then ;D

Just a funny thing this came up, because I always take Runeberg cakes to work when I have my bday.

I’m stuggling to tell if you’re being serious or pulling our legs.

That is a weird coincidence. Did you save us any? :P

Not that we could get them anyway, nobody’s developed a RTTP yet (Runberg Torte Transfer Protocol).

(There is a HTCPCP though - I hear Finland is the top consumer of coffee per capita.)


I found out about Runeberg torte because I was reading the Wikipedia article about Finnish food because I heard that Finland is one of the countries where people live longest (alongside Japan and Greece) so I was wondering what foods they had in common.
