Mum Bakes Hilarious Sweet Treat To Tell Boss She's Quitting Job

A mum baked a hilarious sweet treat to tell her boss that she was leaving her job to follow a new career.

Tasha King, from York, had worked in retail for eight years, but decided to make a change after her side gig as a baker started to take off.

And as a little parting gift to her boss, the 32-year-old baked a giant cookie bearing the following message in icing: "Sorry for your loss. It's me. I quit."

However, she ended up eating it herself - with help from her family - because she was paid later than expected, so she didn't go in and pick up her final wage slip as she had planned.

Speaking about the cheeky joke, Tasha said: "I'd meant to take the cookie in on 1st June, to pick up my last wage slip, but as my wages went in late that morning, I used it for a social media post and me and my family enjoyed it instead.

"He never actually got it. It was always intended to be for a bit of a laugh - life's too short to be serious.

"I think if I gave it to him, he'd have a bit of a chuckle - but he'd be more interested in eating it."

Tasha posted a snap of her creation to Facebook, and says she's received a lot of positive messages from people.

She continued: "I've also had responses from people tagging their mates, saying, 'We should do this next time we get asked to work weekends.'

"Whether people should be making resignation cookies and cakes, I think that'll depend on their boss' sense of humour really.

"A cookie of resignation is much better than a letter, surely?"

Tasha started up her business, Valkyrie Cakes, in July to help tide her over during lockdown.

She says it has given her a huge boost of confidence and she's now keen to make it a success.

Tasha said: "When I started, I would get cakes done in about six hours. Now I can get them out in three to four hours.

"I never really intended on being my own boss, I don't know what I'd planned to do. But I'm glad for the success of my little side-hustle.

"It was an extra cash-flow during lockdown last year. I never expected it to take off like it has, but I'm very lucky."

She added: "It was my friends and family that were encouraging me initially, but my clients are my biggest fans. They're ace.

"They're really supportive - I just have really lovely customers. Word of mouth is probably where I get most of my business from, which means I'm doing a good job."
