Runo-Suomi - Sweet Tooth Poet

Kunnioitimme Juniorin kanssa suomalaisia perinteitä. 

Part of Finnish tradition. Runeberg cup cakes. Johan Ludvig Runeberg is our national poet, he e.g. wrote the lyrics to our national anthem "Our Land" which was first performed in 1848 - Finland finally gained its independence in 1917. The same melody with similar lyrics is also used for the national anthem of Estonia. Runeberg's day is celebrated in Finland on February 5th.

These cup cakes were first made by Runeberg's wife Fredrika, for his husband who apparently had a sweet tooth. Today made by Junior and I.
