The cupcake. Delicious individually portioned treat. Food trend that has jumped the shark and nuked the fridge. And, now, weapon.

The Chicago Tribune reports on a Chicago woman arrested after throwing cupcakes at her husband:

The fight started with a verbal quarrel about 7:45 p.m. at the home in the 4700 block of South Western Avenue, according to a police report, but escalated until the woman started hitting her husband over the head.

After that, she reached for the box of desserts and directed a fusillade of snack cakes at his head and body, her husband told police. Several of the confections apparently hit their mark, as the man's head and shirt were smudged with icing when officers arrived, according to a police report.
According to the Tribune, the woman faces a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. She is free on $10,000 bond.

I don't know whether to be relieved or disappointed that this did not occur in the orbit of the New York Post's headline writers.
