Maine authorities have arrested two people in connection with smuggling $200,000 worth of cocaine, which was disguised as a cake, NBC affiliate WBTS reported Wednesday.

A representative for the Maine Department of Public Safety told WBTS that the suspects were able to disguise two pounds of cocaine by wrapping it in plastic and sprinkling ground coffee on it. 

The packing on the fake cake read in Spanish "Perfect white and ideal flow!” and weighed at one kilogram.
