Bumbling crook just couldn't take the cakes

Posted: April 03, 2013

PITTSBURGH - A Pittsburgh man has been accused of cutting a line waiting to get free cakes from the Cake Boss and stealing four of them.

Hundreds of people were waiting Tuesday morning in downtown Pittsburgh to get the free cakes from the star of the Hoboken, N.J.-based TV show "Cake Boss," Buddy Valastro.

Police spokeswoman Diane Richard says William Davenport took four cakes worth about $27 each from a storage area. Police say when they stopped Williams he apologized for stealing the cakes and admitted he was intoxicated.

Police say the cake theft caused a great commotion among people who had been waiting in line for hours. Officers had to break up fights caused by other people who tried to jump the line.

No attorney for Williams is listed in court papers.

A crowd of hundreds if not thousands in downtown Pittsburgh wrapped around Market Squarefor one of the 10,000 free cakes.

Valastro, who runs a bakery in Hoboken, N.J., organized the giveaway as part of a promotional event for a line of cakes he is creating with Dawn Foods.
