The couple and their Wedding Cake.

A Lovely Wedding Cake
Catered by Little Debbie.

Origins:   Okay, boys and girls, how many "hillbilly" stereotypes can we spot in these pictures?

We have the pregnant, cigarette-smoking, sandal-shod bride with a NASCAR tattoo, and the mullet-headed, gap-toothed, beer-swilling groom
clad in torn jeans and a plaid shirt, posing in front of a motor home and attended by a faithful Rottweiler, celebrating their wedding with a "cake" composed of Hostess brand Twinkies and Suzy Q cupcakes. That's eleven or twelve right there ...

The picture of the bride and groom is an entry submitted to a Worth1000.com photo manipulation contest entitled "If Rednecks Ruled." The actual photo from which the manipulated image was made was lifted from the online album of a couple who wed in August 2003.

The picture of the cake is genuine (albeit unrelated to the first photo): It was taken from the Hostess web site, and it captures a couple who "shared their Hostess happiness with guests" by "serving a three-tiered cake made of Twinkies and Cup Cakes" at their December 2002 engagement party.
