Thieves sneaked into a kitchen and made off with dozens of cakes, scones and flapjacks during a jazz concert. The raiders struck at the Foxlowe Arts Centre in Leek, Staffordshire, on Saturday night.
They escaped with sweet treats including a carrot cake, Victoria sponge, fruit cake, about 10 cheese scones, a number of flapjacks and polenta.The cakes had been baked ready for sale at the arts centre cafe on Sunday.
Arts centre manager Ian Wilson said: "I had a call from my head chef on Sunday morning asking where all the cakes were. We must have had 50 or 60 people at the jazz evening.
"We think someone went into the kitchen during the concert and swiped the lot, more than one person could carry. There is hardly a crumb of evidence left causing my chef to bake like a demon to replace what was taken."
