Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro had a terrible accident last fall, resulting in a serious injury to his right hand. Thankfully, the medical personnel that were assigned to him have done an incredible job. As a thank you, he created the staff that treated him a cake.

“Check out the super special cake I made for Dr. Michelle Carlson, the nurses and staff at @hspecialsurgery as a token of my immense appreciation! It replicates the main hospital there in #NYC. I could never thank them enough for all they have done to help me on this journey to a full recovery,” he said. He also added some hashtags to praise the heroes who helped him mend.

The hospital also posted a picture of the cake that he made, with a note of appreciation for the gesture.

“Recently @TLC #CakeBoss star @buddyvalastro underwent surgery following an accidental injury to his right hand, performed by Dr. Michelle Carlson, hand and upper extremity surgeon at HSS. As a thank you for the care provided, Buddy surprised Dr. Carlson, the nurses and the staff at HSS with a specialty cake he designed of the main hospital in New York City. “That was spectacular. To see this beautiful cake that someone has made for you – it really shows they appreciate what you’ve done, and that’s the best there is,” said Dr. Carlson in the hospital’s Instagram post.

His hand was injured in a freak accident at Buddy’s home bowling alley this fall and he’s been documenting his road to recovery ever since.

If you spent any time watching TLC during the holiday season, you probably checked out their “Road To Recovery” special as well. He’s still got a ways to go, as he has only regained 15 percent of his total hand strength. We wish him the best of luck going forward!
