Well, it's one way to lose weight: A Chicago woman was charged with domestic battery this weekend for hurling cupcakes at her husband, the Chicago Tribune reports. Police say the woman quarreled with her hubby on Saturday night, then struck him on the head and pelted him with cakes from a dessert box. Police witnessed actual icing on his head and shirt when they arrived.

With the husband saying he feared for his safety, she was put under electronic monitoring and given a $10,000 bond. She also admitted to the not-so-sweet assault. A dip into the husband's records shows he has been collared three times since 2003 for battery or domestic battery charges—each of which were later dropped. The cupcake assault victim declined to comment. (More domestic battery stories.)
