How To Quit Your Job Like a Boss: A Cake Resignation Letter

The most important events in one’s life are often commemorated with cake — birthdays, graduations, weddings — but rarely does someone literally use a cake to make a major life change.

Jay Rayner found this cake from former British immigration officer Chris Holmes (a.k.a. “Mr. Cake”), who presented it to his bosses at Stanstead Airport when he announced his resignation. In classy parlance, though, he used it not to deliver some angry messages, but to thank them — and also invite them to check out his new cake business, which he’d been building over the past few years.

“Having recently become a father, I now realise [sic] how precious life is and how important it is to spend my time doing something that makes me, and other people, happy,” he writes.

“For that reason, I hereby give notice of my resignation, in order that I may devote my time and energy to my family, and my cake business.”
