    genitive singular is пирожного

    Here is a site to check all cases of any word. Normally it works OK but looks like it failed to give singular cases for "пирожное".
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    Thanks alot, but while I was waiting someone showed me this link --> Russian Genitive Case - Russian Language Lesson 10 - Main Lesson - Russian Language Lessons
    and there it says that:

    Neuter Nouns:
    1. Replace “о” with “а”
    2. Replace “е” with “я”

    so now I'm confused on which one to go with because they don't look the same?

    Rule 1: in Russian each rule has a great number of exceptions.

    "пирожное" is an adjectival noun, that is an adjective interpreted as noun. Such nouns are declined according to rules for adjectives.

    See here, variant 2 (adjective), "Neuter" column. Or here, "Normal Adjectives - Hard" paragraph, "Neuter" column.
