My British friend never used the word cheap because it refers to the quality also. If something doesn't cost a lot then it is inexpensive.

Not necessarily-but i agree it often has that back-taste in UK english

This could be a regional thing, but "leivos" makes me think only of small cakes, while "pastry" would be "leivonnainen".
