What it means in English: Dead Aunt.

What it means in English: Little boys’ penis.
What it actually is: A dumpling or especially thick noodle.
What it means in English: Nun’s Farts.
What it actually is: Light, airy pastry covered in sugar. Interestingly enough, Nonnenfürzchen is not the only pastry named after nuns’ farts. Go figure.

What it means in English: Minced Peter.
