Former German minister gets cake in face

At an event in Berlin, two activists pushed a Black Forest cherry cake into Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg`s face.

Berlin: Former German defence minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg is brushing aside a cake-in-the-face attack, saying in a Facebook posting that at least he didn`t go hungry at an event in Berlin.

Guttenberg, who was a one-time star in Chancellor Angela Merkel`s conservative bloc, resigned last March after it emerged he copied large parts of his doctoral thesis without attribution.

At an event in Berlin on Thursday night, two activists pushed a Black Forest cherry cake into his face and the video since posted on the Internet shows a slightly shocked Guttenberg wiping the desert away and then licking his fingers.
On his Facebook fan page on Friday, Guttenberg said he`d been hungry at the event and loved the cake, adding that "next time, I`d like a cheesecake, please”.
