Updated: November 18, 2011 8:48AM

A woman who allegedly pelted her husband with cupcakes was charged with domestic battery Saturday after he called the cops on her.

Dawn Montesdeoca, 60, is accused of throwing the party-sized treats at her husband Arturo, 56, and hitting him during an argument at his home on the 4700 block of South Western.

When police arrived, Arturo Montesdeoca’s head and shirt were smeared in cupcake icing, and he told officers he was “in fear” and wanted his wife arrested, according to a police report.

She used “a very aggressive tone,” with the cops and admitted the cupcake assault, the report said.

Judge Adam D. Bourgeois set her bail at $10,000 during a brief court hearing Sunday morning.
