    Hello, merry Christmas to all!

    How would I say in french, "to leave on a high"
    Meaning that I will do one last spectacular thing before I leave, which will be memorable and will mean that I leave a good impression on the people remaining behind

    Context: I want to make a spectacular cake for my work colleagues, since I am leaving. So I wanted to say: "I hope this cake will be good enough to allow me to leave on a high!"

    Thanks very much in advance

    Oh yes, and if I had to attempt first, it would be:
    J’espère que mon gâteau vous laissera une bonne impression de moi !

    It may be overdramatic but you might ironiccally refer to the cake as "un baroud d'honneur"
