When the San Francisco "data wrangler" decided to leave his job, he gave his notice on a vanilla sheet cake filled with Bavarian cream and fresh strawberries. Mmm, it turns out that the taste of resignation can be delicious.
"Dear Mr. Bowers," the cake began. "During the past three years, my tenure at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has been nothing short of pure excitement, joy and whim.
"However, I have decided to spend more time with my family and attend to health issues that have recently arisen. I am proud to have been part of such an outstanding team and I wish this organization only the finest in future endeavors.
"Please accept this cake as notification that I am leaving my position with NWT on March 27."
Berrett tells Slashfood the cake – made by local bakery The Cake Gallery -- was well received, though he also included his resignation on paper.
"It's hard to file or fax a cake," he says.
