Cake Boss Buddy Valastro’s 5th hand surgery was a success, Gigi Hadid likely sighs in relief

Buddy Valastro gave an update on his hand injury in an appearance on Rachael Ray.

The Cake Boss star is recovering from his fifth hand surgery following a bowling accident last September. Valastro said in the past month his hand has regained mobility and now has about 75 percent of its strength back. “I’m still in physical therapy, and you know, just doing really well,” he said. Part of his healing journey was documented on TLC’s Buddy Valastro: Road to Recovery.

After the accident, Valastro was worried about his cake decorating career since he severely injured his dominant hand. “I might not ever be able to pipe again, you know? I don’t know,” he told Entertainment Tonight. But now he’s proved to Ray he’s still got piping skills — he demonstrated how to decorate a floral cake, just in time for Mother’s Day.

While this is great news for Valastro, major fan Gigi Hadid is also no doubt thrilled. After the Cake Boss made her a bagel cake and Zayn Malik a soccer cake, she might already be discussing plans with the baker for little Khai’s first birthday.
