"We will still keep you up to date on what's going on with us via our Web site, blog, Facebook, and Twitter pages," Goldman said in his blog post. "And, although we can't reveal too much yet, there are definitely plans afoot for some big things for us in the future."

Goldman reminded customers that while the show will come to an end, business at his cake shop will carry on. "For us, it continues to be 'all about the cakes,'" he said.

He also thanked the production team and fans for helping make the show a success.
