Talk about a sweet engagement! Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro used his baking skills to help with a whimsical proposal at the Cake Factory in Jersey City on Monday.

While this isn’t the first engagement to happen at the store, Valastro was impressed with the groom’s creative idea for a dessert to show off the square-cut diamond.

“The bride is a huge fan of frogs, so her fiancé asked us to sculpt a frog prince that could hold the engagement ring in its mouth,” Valastro said. The cupcake was a vanilla sponge cake with vanilla buttercream, and the frog was sculpted out of modeling chocolate.

Luckily, it wasn’t too hard to get the bride-to-be to the Cake Factory. “She was taking a class there, and we set it up for them to meet in my office,” he said. “That’s when I gave her the box with the cupcake inside, and when she opened it her fiancé got down on one knee and proposed.”

Valastro shared photos from the special moment on the Instagram feed for Carlo’s Bakery, the Hoboken bakery featured on his TLC show.

“Talk about a #sweetsurprise! This couple got engaged at the Cake Factory this morning!! Congratulations to the happy couple!”

The bride’s mom was also able to attend and see her daughter get engaged. Seems to us like this groom thought of everything — a true Prince Charming!
