A BORDER Force worker from Stansted Airport quit his job and made his employer a cake – which had his resignation letter written on top with icing.
Chris Holmes, from Sawston in Cambridgeshire, told airport bosses he wanted to spend more time with his family following the birth of his child.
An image of the iced resignation went viral on Twitter within hours of Mr Holmes’ brother-in-law posting it on the social networking site.
Mr Holmes, who worked at the airport as an immigration officer for four years, handed in the resignation cake on Monday, his 31st birthday.
He said on the cake: “Having recently become a father I now realise how precious life is and how important it is to spend my time doing something that makes me and other people happy.”
