The “Cake Boss” wanted to show his appreciation to the doctors who saved his right hand after it was mutilated in a bowling accident, so he baked them a cake in the shape of the hospital where he was treated. .
Buddy posted a photo of his work, with the caption: “Check out the super special cake I made for Dr Michelle Carlson, the nurses and the staff at @hspecialsurgery as a token of my immense appreciation!” adding, “It replicates the main hospital of #NYC. 🌃 I cannot thank them enough for all they have done to help me on this journey to a full recovery ♥ ️ ”
As we reported, Buddy was bowling in September when he tried to free a bowling pin from the cage mechanism. His right the hand is lodged and compressed in the unit, which was housed in the mechanism for 5 minutes. His sons rushed into a garage and got a saw to cut through the metal rod to free Buddy’s hand.
Buddy was rushed to hospital where the doctors removed a rod and treated a horrific wound. A second surgical procedure was performed by Dre Michelle Carlson, to whom he gave a special shout when he delivered the cake.
Buddy came to “TMZ Live” to talk how he sails the cake biz these days. He’s using his left hand a lot more than usual, but it’s clearly working for him.
