Very creative. That is a LOT sweeter than my eventual resignation letter will be.

That's what I was thinking! But I would need a whole truckload of pies for Megacorp. How come we never see anymore pie fights in the movies. I can't watch a pie fight without laughing

Mine could've been a cupcake, as it needed to accommodate but 2 words.

(No, No, not those 2 words! )

It could be a wolf in sheep's clothing if he baked in an extra ingredient like Exlax

Please folks, let's have some serious discussion of this issue.

No more half-baked ideas.

It reminds me of a cute little dark romcom called, "Assassin in Love" (a.k.a. The Baker)

You are welcome. That post was a piece of cake to write, though.

Having things lined up with the business made it a "Cake Walk", out of there...

I hope his business is doing well. He's got his business name and URL in front of probably hundreds of thousands of folks by being inventive. If the baking thing doesn't work out for him he should look into PR/advertising.
