As a passionate Moomin lover and also cake baker, I thought that I would post a countdown of my favourite Moomin cakes that I have seen on the internet – and believe me, there are more than 25, so this was really hard for me!
25 – This was found on Vesselin väkerrykset‘s blog. I really love the Groke and I think this looked like great fun to make. Not many people like her because she is scary, but she just wants to be loved!
24 – The Moomin cake at the Bury art museum on October 24th 2010 for the Magical Moominvalley exhibition. It was simple yet beautiful. I stole one of the boats!
23 – this was found on Ewelyn’s Cakeheaven. This isn’t the only cake that they make – check out the website for more.
22 – This was found on A Baked Creation. Despite the creator not knowing too much about the Moomins, but I’m sure the experience has enlightened her about them. They have created most of the characters in the story in cupcakes – the Groke and Hattifatteneres are my favourites made.
21 – This was found on PapunKakut.
20 – This was found on Zardra’s Mindbook. It was made by her stepsister and it is so adorable!
19 – This was found on Jill’s Sugar Collection. I adore this because I love the night sky as well as tree houses.
18 – This was found on Sweet Little Bakes. They make a variety of cakes that seriously look too good to eat!
17 – This cake is by estranged-illusions. It perfectly fits the character of Moominmamma.
16 – This was found on Skeddula’s blog. The cake itself doesn’t look too hard to make, but believe me making the characters is very difficult.
15 – This was found on Animals in the Kitchen. Not only are the characters well-made, but the leaves are brilliant!
14 – This cake is wonderful. It was found on Chris and Claire’s Lapland Blog, but I’m not sure it was their cake, so I don’t know who to give credit to. Even before I had seen this, I always pictured myself having Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden on top of my wedding cake if ever I got married. When I saw this, it was exactly as I had pictured it in my mind… someone beat me to it!
13 – This was found on Cake Central and it was made by katjuza. It is so simple yet effective. I used to love skiing!
12 – This was found on Cake Central by Tinuviel. I personally love the Groke and think that she isn’t favoured as much over other characters, so this is why I particularly like this one.
11 – This was found on NAM workshop. I’m a lover of over-the-top extravagant cakes, and this ticks all the boxes for me.
10 – This was found on Ancka Bakar Biscuits‘ blog. My favourite part of this cake is how Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden’s tails join together to form a love heart.
9 – This was found on Moon Karkelo. It definitely reminds me of sea-life with the shells on the sides. I love the characters and only wish I had the skill to make them myself.
8 – This was found on Cake Pearl. It’s a great portrayal of what Moominvalley is like, which is why I love it so much.
7 – This was also found on Ancka Bakar Biscuits. This perfectly portrays Moominpappa, out on his travels and reading a book.
6 – This was found on molif‘s website. It’s probably one of the most beautiful cakes I’ve seen, and I love the fact that Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden are holding hands.
5 – This was found on Baker Hell. There is so much going on here that you get a feeling of being in Moominvalley.
4 – This was found on Treats Moment. I adore the apple cores here and the generally happy aura about this cake.
3 – This was found on A Beautiful Cake. I love this a lot because not many people show interest in Too-ticky, but she is one of my favourites.
2 – This was found on Mihako‘s blog. I particularly love Mymble’s daughter because she is very pretty.
1 – This is my favourite cake because it’s so full of life and the main characters. The lollipop trees are brilliant and the grass is realistic.
