Man resigns from airport job - with letter baked on cake

When Chris Holmes, an immigration worker at a UK airport, wanted to quit his job, he decided it was best to say it with a cake.

The airport worker-turned-baker served his employers at the Stansted Airport a sweet surprise when he showed up with a resignation letter, penned in icing atop a cake.

A photo of his sweet letter quickly went viral on the Internet after his brother-in-law posted it on Twitter.

Holmes, who is now known as Mr Cake, wrote in his letter:

To The Management, Border Force, Stansted:

Today is my 31st birthday, and having recently become a father I now realise have 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

Sincerely, Chris Holmes (Mr Cake)
