Chris Holmes recently became a Dad, and his fledging cake business was taking off, so he quit his day job, the way all people should — with a resignation cake…
Chris’ business is called “Mr. Cake”, so the resulting PR from this stunt can’t hurt. (I know next time I’m in London, England, I’m stopping by his place for a digestive!)
It appears as those his former employers are happy for his new found career and have wished him well.
Here’s how the world found out about the cake, via his brother in law’s twitter feed:
Here’s what it says, for those who are cake type face challenged:
To The Management, Border Force, Stansed:
Today is my 31st birthday and having recently become a father I now realize how precious life is and how important it is to spend time doing something that makes me, and other people, happy.
For that reasons, I hearby 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 http://www.mrcake.co.uk.
