Airport officials in London thought they were seizing copious amounts of drugs but instead, their “huge drug bust” just turned out to be ingredients to bake a vegan cake.

A staff member from the Purezza vegan pizzeria was transporting 25 bags of the ingredients in a suitcase through London’s Gatwick Airport before being stopped by police.

The white powder, which was divided into blue bags, was suspected to have been illegal drugs, so it was seized by The British Transport Police and UK Home Office and tested multiple times. After several tests, officers realized that the white powder was just egg white substitute.
