The UK man was a Border Agency official at London's Stansted Airport. That job wasn't his passion. His passion was, and is, to create cakes. So when figuring out how he would give his official resignation letter, Holmes turned to his cake-designing skills. On a lovely flat sheet cake resembling a piece of paper, Holmes wrote a thoughtful and honest resignation letter.
According to Business Insider, the man now known as "Mr. Cake" told Elodie Harper at Sawston's local news station ITV news that making the cake "seemed like the obvious choice." He continued, "... 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."
"Mr. Cake" has now gone viral and Holmes has his brother-in-law, Stuart Jackson, to thank. Jackson tweeted out a picture of the cake, which was quickly picked up and shared internationally.
