The Big Announcement

Goldman announced his happy news on Instagram, where he revealed that the idea to propose suddenly gripped him one morning, when he realized he “can’t imagine living another day without her in my life.”

Check out the sweet post below:

I woke up yesterday and it felt like any other day. Sun was shining, birds was chirping. I made some coffee, ate a little breakfast, and got in the shower. I was shaving my head when like a mule kick to the heart I realized that I am absolutely in love with Johnna ( @letushear ) and I can’t imagine living another day without her in my life. She is kind, funny, smart, beautiful, cool, wise, and sexy. She’s a tempest of feeling. I didn’t plan this out, it just happened and it was so glaringly obvious that I couldn’t have stopped it if I wanted to. I asked her to marry me. She said yes. I cannot imagine a state of happiness that is more intense than whatever I’m feeling right now. My heart just might burst. I love you muffin. I love every scar. I love the way you smell. I’m sorry I didn’t have a real ring. I hope you don’t mind butcher’s twine, I am a chef, after all.

“I didn’t plan this out, it just happened and it was so glaringly obvious that I couldn’t have stopped it if I wanted to,” Goldman wrote on April 3. “I asked her to marry me. She said yes. I cannot imagine a state of happiness that is more intense than whatever I’m feeling right now. My heart just might burst. I love you muffin.”

An Unexpected Ring Choice

Goldman’s words are so sweet, but what’s up with the ring made of string?

“I’m sorry I didn’t have a real ring,” Goldman wrote. “I hope you don’t mind butcher’s twine, I am a chef, after all.”

How romantic! Colbry then shared them same photo, along with her own announcement, on Instagram, writing, “Officially my ride or die. My forever muffin. My buffalo. I’m so crazy about you @duffgoldman and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life going on adventures with you! 😊 hnnnnggg”

A Look At Goldman’s Talents

Goldman has been working in kitchens for nearly three decades, and he opened his own cake shop back in 2000. If you haven’t seen some of his creations, prepare to be wowed!

Goldman shared this geode-topped stunner on Instagram with a note that the geode is made entirely of sugar.

This “Splatoon”-themed cake made for a kids’ birthday party is pretty awesome.

And check out this ice skate cake. Toe pick, anyone?

His bakery has been behind such creations as the cake for Barack Obama’s 2012 inauguration.

I don’t know who’s going to make the wedding cake, but that will be a lot of pressure for some lucky baker! Congratulations to the happy couple.
