Going into retirement might not be a piece of cake for certain people, but for Tamika King it certainly was.

Inspired by a woman who quit her cleaning job with a quirky condolences card to her boss, Tamika decided to announce her retirement with a twist as well. This follows after more and more people are opting for sassy and creative ways to hand in their resignations, Mirror reports.

American Twitter user @LikeAFineWino, tweeted that Tamika, her mother, confided only in the HR department about her planned retirement.

"My mom retired similarly," the girl tweeted. "No one but HR knew she was going to retire that year. On her last day she emailed 'Cake in the breakroom' to the whole office and she left for good 30 minutes later – full pension and all. Lol"

When her co-workers entered the breakroom they were greeted with a cake that read: "Happy Retirement To Me."

And 30 minutes later, Tamika left work for good.

The tweet garnered thousands of likes, with people praising Tamika's creativity.

"Omg, this is iconic," said one follower.

"Your mom is a queen!" another user said.
