A person looking to resign from a company on amicable terms may want to take some cues from Mr. Cake (Chris Holmes). He decided to write his inspirational resignation letter in black icing on top of a simple white rectangular cake. Not only does this soften the blow, but it also inadvertently advertises the reason for Mr. Cake's departure. He has decided to pursue his passion for baking cakes.

A former immigration officer for the UK Border Force, Mr. Cake decided to treat his boss and co-workers to a spiced carrot cake with pecans, sultanas and coconut. It was topped off with orange icing. Of course, they could do nothing but wish him the best. Stats for Thoughtful Resignation Cakes Trending: Older & Buzzing
