If you’re going to quit your job to pursue your dream job of making cakes for a living, then writing your resignation letter on a cake is definitely the right move. Note the bottom of the cake has a nice plug for his business, so this is great marketing as well.

In an interview with Elodie Harper at Sawston’s local news station ITV news, Holmes said that his decision “seemed like the obvious choice.”
“… Having set up a cake company, I thought I would leave them with a memento that would be a nice way of remembering me. I had the idea six months ago so I’ve kept it to myself since then.”
“I think [my boss] was pleasantly surprised, of all the resignations businesses get, I think that’s probably a nice way for an employee to leave and I hope they enjoyed the cake as well as the resignation.”
Holmes’ employers told Harper that they wished him “all the best” in his new business venture.
