Duff Goldman was shaving his bald pate when he came to a realization. It was “like a mule kick to the heart,” he wrote in an Instagram post. He was in love with his girlfriend, Johnna Colbry, and wanted to marry her.

“She’s a tempest of feeling,” the Food Network star and pastry chef wrote of his beloved on April 2. “I didn’t plan this out.”

So he proposed, forgoing a diamond ring for a piece of string. She accepted.

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

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County alumnus later posted a photo of an engagement cake baked for the couple by Charm City Cakes, the bakery that Goldman founded.

Charm City Cakes said on Instagram that they looked forward to making the “wedding cake to end all wedding cakes.”
