At Gatwick Airport in London, a passenger was intercepted last Wednesday with a suitcase full of large bags of white powder. An unprecedented amount of drugs, it was thought – until it turned out that it was just a mix for the vegan cake.
It was an employee of Purezza, a vegan pizzeria that has a branch in London, among other places, that was ‘caught’ with the white powder in its suitcase.
The substance was tested on the spot for illegal substances, but nothing unusual found in it. It was indeed a mix of flour, sugar and other ingredients to make a cake, as the man explained earlier.
The 25 bags were quickly returned to the owner “who has promised officers and staff a slice of cake in return,” the British police said in a statement. “Please label your foods and bring samples of cakes next time you visit,” the cops joked on Twitter.
