Cake Boss Injured At Home In Non-Baking Accident
"CAKE BOSS" BUDDY VALASTRO IS RECOVERING AFTER A SERIOUS ACCIDENT AT HOME--IT DIDN'T INVOLVE BAKING BUT BOWLING INSTEAD
(CNN) – Buddy Valastro, better known as the Cake Boss, is recovering from what he calls a “terrible” accident at home.
He greeted his social media followers with this image of his bandaged arm Wednesday, with the caption “how do you like my new accessory?”
The Cake Boss injured his dominant right cooking hand; not in a baking accident, but in his home bowling alley.
He was trying a do-it-yourself repair on a bowling pin mechanism and his right hand got impaled inside the machinery.
Valastro received emergency treatment on Sunday then had a specialized procedure done later.
A representative said the famous baker faces a long road of rehabilitation and recovery.
He is recovering at home after being released from the hospital on Wednesday.
Buddy may have to focus more on judging cake competitions than baking cakes for a while.
