Marketing Strategy? Man quits job with resignation letter written on a cake

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.

On his 31st birthday, Chris Holmes — now known to the public as “Mr. Cake” — decided it was time to quit his job as a Border Agency official at London’s Stansted Airport to do something he’s passionate about and would allow him to spend more time with this family. For Holmes, this meant pursuing a cake business called Mr. Cake and notifying his employers with actual icing on a cake.

Holmes’ sweet resignation letter quickly went viral when his brother-in-law tweeted a picture of it to the world. Note the bottom of the cake has a nice plug for his business, so this is great marketing as well:
