Leaving a job isn’t always the most fun thing to do. When the split is mutual, things are beautiful, but when the employee decides to go, things can get ugly. Employers and co-workers can get petty when someone chooses to leave, and these messages on cakes are proof. You never know who someone really is until you don’t have to see them five days a week anymore and they tell you that no one will miss you. While they’re (usually) joking, these messages are pretty mean as well. Here are the most hilariously mean farewell cakes ever.
What’s Your Name, Doc?
Getting creative with a harsh farewell makes it a bit better. The more extras you add to it, the more satisfying it becomes, and this Bugs Bunny cake does the job well.
When you purposefully let someone know you don’t remember their name after knowing them for an extended period, it hurts. That’s where the meanness comes into play here. Bugs lightens the hit some, but we’re sure this person felt every ounce of the intended spite.
What A Great Way To Burn Bridges!
Working at a terrible job to keep the bills paid is something many can relate to these days. When the opportunity arises for a better position and you take it, your former employer might feel like this.
Wishing someone to fail is beyond harsh, but when you put it on a cake, it becomes funny somehow. Someone’s mother-in-law found a better role elsewhere, and this is how her co-workers thanked her for all her hard work.
Sad To Say No One Will Miss You
While this might be a joke, some might take it seriously when they’re alone. Telling someone that no one will miss you is pretty bad, no matter how delicious the cake you write it on tastes.
A Reddit user commented on this post, saying, “If I ever received something like this, I would feel like such utter [expletive], I know it is a joke, and I would play it off. But on the inside, it would hurt.”
Grumpy Cat Bids Farewell
The Grumpy Cat might be gone in real life, but she lives on forever in the form of mean farewell cakes. For starters, this one isn’t as rude as the others, mainly because many know Grumpy Cat was a cute internet figure.
Still, it’s pretty mean to bid someone farewell with an image of anger. At least the drawing of the cat is beautiful, and the cake looks delicious. Whoever received this cake shouldn’t eat it and should just preserve it for as long as he or she can.
Cathy And Big Scott Call It Quits
A boss can manage losing one person, but two on the same day might be a little rough. Cathy and Big Scott didn’t care when they decided to become “quitters.”
These two must have had an impact on the company for someone to say they’re dead to them now. Then to go as far as to call them “forever quitters” means there must be some truth to these statements, even if presented in the form of jokes.
Don’t Bring Batman Into The Equation
The death of Bruce Wayne’s parents is one of the most tragic stories in all of the comic books. Shot to death in front of his eyes as a young boy… unforgivable. This is why he became Batman.
To give this as a farewell cake must be bittersweet. That’s only because it looks so good, but why would you want to say this to someone? All they did was leave and find somewhere else to work.
A Little Guilt Trip Never Hurt
Guilt-tripping is a great form of manipulation. To manipulate someone for taking their talents elsewhere is also mean. Since this took place at a grooming salon, the image of the dog on the cake makes sense.
The doggo makes the message on the cake hit a little harder because no one likes abandoning dogs! As this cake tugs at the former employee’s emotional side, we wonder if they took it to the heart or not.
One word, Traitor
Sometimes, less is more, and that’s true with this cake. A giant yellow farewell cake with one word on it says a lot, especially if that word is “traitor.” Did they have to take it that far?
Someone like LeBron James was a traitor after he left Cleveland for Miami in 2011. That word carries such a piercing connotation with it. We hope the recipient’s emotions made a full recovery after getting this on their last day.
Why Are You Still Here?
Ouch, this one had to hurt. Think about the last time you heard the phrase “haven’t you left yet,” directed towards you. Didn’t it fill you with so much despair?
The message on the cake is one thing, but to have it designed in such a disgusting manner is the icing on top (no pun intended). We figure the flavor here is chocolate, but if they wanted to be extremely mean, they could’ve made it something unexpected instead.
Now You Have To Save The Cake
This farewell cake is the biggest slap in the face ever. Take a look at the subtleties displayed in the writing. Did they have to put hard work in quotes, or was the person that lazy?
Then, to top it off, whoever ordered this cake had to audacity to tell the recipient that they could use it as a reference. That’s probably why this is the most beautiful cake writing we’ve ever seen. Still, how mean can people get?
We wouldn’t be surprised if, after giving the former employee this cake, someone said: “don’t forget to close the door on your way out!” That would be like a scene out of the movies.
“And stay out” is a great phrase to use when it’s time to show how mean you can get. No one wants to hear that unless the feelings are mutual. In this case, it’s a one-way street, so the bitter one showed their true colors.
Dave Didn’t Deserve This
Dave never meant to disappoint anyone. He probably only tried his hardest to do a good job. Unfortunately, it looks like his best work wasn’t good enough because he’s a “huge disappointment.”
For being such a wreck, he sure did receive a well-decorated cake! They could’ve done the balloons a little better, but other than that, this is a solid cake. Hopefully, at his next job, Dave doesn’t rub anyone the wrong way.
Who Deserves This?
Okay, what’s the big idea here? Who in the world deserves some sort of litter box creation of a cake as their farewell? It’s downright rude and funny at the same time!
Whatever they used to make the letters look real. It almost looks too real but won’t even think about that. If they found a way to make it smell bad as they presented it, they would’ve won the award for the pettiest employer.
Eileen Must Be Mad
We don’t know who upset Eileen, but she’s showcasing her anger in a very “sweet” way. That looks like a cookie cake equipped with loads of tasty toppings in an autumn theme.
Could it be a play on the phrase, “make like a tree and leave?” We’re not sure if that’s the case, but we do know that Eileen’s frustration needed to get released. For her to use “hate” and immediately follow it with “love” says a lot about how shook she is by the situation.
The Cupcake Edition!
Hilariously mean farewell cakes are great, but the cupcake version might be slightly better. We don’t know, though; you be the judge here. This nicely-arranged assortment pleases the eye, but the message doesn’t.
They even took the time to add a little heart to the cupcake in the upper right corner. At least whoever received this had a pleasant sight on their last day. We could stare at these all day.
Cakes Against Humanity
For those who have no clue what the card game “Cards Against Humanity” is, this cake should help you get a gist. The goal of the game is to pick the funniest white card that goes with the message from a black card.
Someone who left their company received a cake based on the game, and this one is downright hilarious. While it is mean too, the thoughtfulness involved in constructing this dessert makes this one sensational.
What Did Ben Do?
The appearance of this cake is everything. First, you start off with the whole “you’re dead to us” statement, then you follow up it up with the “we hope you fail.”
Ben probably felt terrible after the first sentence, so did they have to add the crying emoji to it? Are they crying for Ben’s future failures or over the fact that he’s leaving? There’s a lot going on here, and it’s great to see.
The Employee Won This Round
In an interesting turn of events, it wasn’t the employer who was mean here, but the employee. By the looks of the message on the cake, it leads us to believe they won this round.
Perhaps this person found something new, and he or she didn’t feel appreciated at the old place. There are so many possibilities that could explain why this cake got made, but we’ll just go with our guess.
What A Great Way To Say Goodbye
What a great way to learn some devastating news, don’t you think? A heavily decorated cake with owls on top of it that reads “You’re Fired” is cruel yet hilarious at the same time.
How could someone be so mean and funny? It looks like something Michael Scott from The Office would have tried before HR told him that it wasn’t appropriate for the workplace. This employee probably did their job so horribly that this was the only way to get rid of them.
Once A Quitter, Always A Quitter
To have people remember you as a quitter has to be terrible. That’s one of the worst adjectives you can describe someone as. A quitter never wins, and a winner never quits.
When your past employer hits you with a cake like this in front of everyone else, you can’t ever show your face again around those parts. What’s worse is that’s all the cake has to say—there’s no name or anything, just “Quitter” in a large font.
