More cake typos *

A Times staffer emails that at yesterday's goodbye affair for features-floor editor John Scheibe, the golf-themed message on his cake referred to tea time instead of "tee time." Three's a trend:

Tour de France instead of "Tour de Force" for Kevin Thomas

Faithfull instead of "faithful" for Eric Malnic and other Metroids

Now even though LAT Editor Dean Baquet has not yet released any official word on this latest blunder - inside sources say this latest tier of events has left him pretty... frosted.
