February 5th is Runeberg's Day in Finland, which celebrates the birthday of poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg. He's Finland's national poet, and it just so happens that he used to live in a house on the site of the very building where my sister now lives! So we just had to indulge in some of the special cakes that are sold to commemorate his day. They're little sponge cakes (this one had nuts in it, but I also had one with no nuts, and others are flavoured with cardamom or soaked in alcohol) with jam and icing on top, and they're yummy!
