Shock rocker MARILYN MANSON surprised his new wife Dita Von Teese on Valentine's Day (14FEB06) by baking her a selection of cup cakes.

Burlesque dancer Von Teese insists the PERSONAL JESUS singer is nothing like his dark image suggests, and that he often likes to woo her with romantic treats.

Von Teese, who wed Manson in December (05), says, "He really is a cutie. For Valentine's Day we baked each other cup cakes with baby blue icing."
