Schmoo torte is a Canadian dessert. Although it is relatively popular and well-known nationwide, it is most famous in Western Canada, especially Manitoba. It is a torte with layered whipped cream, caramel, and nuts, commonly made using angel food or sponge cake.


The schmoo torte was first invented by a mother for her son's Bar Mitzvah in Winnipeg, Manitoba. How the schmoo got its name is unknown, however, some claim it comes from the name of the comic book creatures from Al Capp’s Li’l Abner.
