A 60-year-old woman was sentenced to two months in jail Tuesday for attacking the leader of the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats with a cake and driving without a licence, AFP reports.

"She abused Jimmie Aakesson by pushing a cake into his face," the Stockholm court wrote in the sentence.

Irene Matkowitzc, who admitted to the crime, was ordered to pay 5,000 kronor ($775, 562 euros) in damages to the party leader and cover his 300 kronor dry cleaning bill.

Matkowitzc attacked the Sweden Democrats leader during a book signing in central Stockholm in November 2013, when she shoved a Swedish cream cake she had concealed in her jacket in his face, shouting "fascist bastard".

She was sentenced to jail instead as she was also found guilty of three incidents of driving without a licence -- and had 13 previous convictions.

Matkowitzc defended her attack as the work of a militant anti-racist opposing "a symbol of neo-fascism".

Aakesson's party is fighting for third place with the Green Party in Sweden's September general election where the ruling conservative Moderate Party will be challenged by the Social Democrat-led opposition.
