Ethmia
This certainly looks like an Yponomeuta, but actually it is an Ethmia. Ethmia spp. don't hold the wings as "rooflike" as do Yponomeuta. Having looked at Powell's revision, I would say that your best bet for this moth is Ethmia apicipunctella. The revision is viewable online by going here and selecting Volume 120.

Cute indeed!
