Mustamakkara (a type of sausage from Tampere) and lohikeitto (salmon soup) are very good but they are not desserts. Delicious Finnish desserts include korvapuusti

rättänä (from Savonia)

lörtsy (from Savonlinna - it can be a dessert filled with jam, but there are also meat-filled versions)

muurinpohjalettu (a type of crêpe)

uunipannukakku (oven pancake)

rönttönen (from Kainuu)

and different types of quark desserts as well as all sorts of pies and pastries with cloudberries, lingonberries, bilberries and raspberries. joulutorttu (made with prune jam) is a typical Finnish Christmas dessert.

On Runeberg Day, Finns eat runebergintorttu

and on Shrove Tuesday laskiaispulla.

A typical Finnish täytekakku has three layers filled with whipped cream and berries. Here is one with cloudberries.

As a Finn, I've never even heard of sultsina before, so you guys are learning some really special vocabulary here. Enjoy that!

It depends on from which part of the country you are. I am from eastern Finland and find sultsina delicious. I think Finns are far too modest when it comes to regional treats. We should be proud of our culture. I cannot imagine someone from France or Italy dismissing a regional treat as "special vocabulary". :)

Since when has "special vocabulary" been dismissing? The whole point of my comment was to be positively surprised! :D

I understood special as "specialised". Clearly, I have misunderstood you. Apologies. :)

Sultsina is a traditional Karelian dish, a cross between a crêpe and a flatbread, made of unleavened rye dough and a farina (mannapuuro) filling. Rice pudding can also be used as a filling. - Wikipedia
