We need rigidly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty.

What you list is a mix of (to use the technical terms) baker's confectionery
and sugar confectionery.  What a shame we don't have a word that
combines both types of item.

Actually, we not only have such a word, we have the corresponding tag:
shop=confectionery.  However, the wiki contradicts itself.  The first
includes cakes and croissants as items it sells.  The second paragraph says
that shops selling cakes should be shop=pastry.

Also, I don't know about the UK in general, but I can only remember
seeing "confectionery" applied to sweet shops that want to appear
up-market.  Wiktionary agrees with me.  Wikipedia doesn't.
