British Man Resigns in Icing & Presents Boss With Cake

Step aside, resignation letter. It’s time for something a bit tastier.

When Chris Holmes decided to resign from the U.K. Border Agency at Stansted Airport across the pond, he didn’t just put it in writing. He put it on a cake!

Instead of resigning the old-fashioned way, Holmes baked a cake to inform his bosses it was time to resign.

Considering he’s ramping up his cake business, it sounds like Holmes took the opportunity to not only resign but self-promote as well!

According to Grub Street, he wrote in icing:

“Having recently become a father I now realise how precious life is and how important it is to spend my time doing something that makes me and other people happy. For that reason 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. 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.
Sincerely, Chis Holmes (Mr. Cake)”
