Leivonnainen? "Leivos" makes me think of a small cake, not a pastry. Onko tää joku alueellinen juttu vai oonko koko ikäni kuvitellu asian aivan väärin? :)

Hmm...apparently both translate as pastry in English, of course depending on what kind it actually is :-) Leivos seems to be a subcategory of leivonnainen. I don't discriminate, I'll eat either!
