Sweetest Resignation Letter Ever Written on Cake
Recipe of the day
Here's a way to leave a job gracefully: bake a cake and write your resignation letter on it.
An official at the U.K. Border Agency at Stansted Airport decided it was time for a change around his 31st birthday, so he baked a friendly, sweet resignation cake to inform his bosses.
"I hereby give notice of my resignation, in order that I may devote my time and energy to my family, and to my cake business which has grown steadily over the past few years," Holmes writes in piped icing. "I wish the organisation and my colleagues the best for the future and I remind you that, if you enjoy this cake, you can order more at www.mrcake.co.uk."
The letter, signed Chris Holmes, or Mr. Cake, has garnered social media attention since his brother-in-law tweeted the photo, calling it "Jerry Maguire meets MasterChef." Naturally, the website has been overloaded and is unavailable. The cake, the Guardian reports, was a 10-inch-by-12-inch spiced carrot cake with pecans, sultanas, and coconut, made with about 18 eggs.
