When you’re the Cake Boss, making a “thank you” cake is no ordinary affair.

Buddy Valastro, who stars as Cake Boss on his reality tv show, created a hospital-themed confection for the staff of New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery.

The staff helped Valastro recover from what could have been a career-ending injury earlier this year.

Back in September, Valastro severely damagedhis right hand. He was repairing a machine at his home bowling alley when a pinsetter rod impaled his hand.

On Wednesday, Valastro shared images of the cake, and the inspiration for the cake, on his Instagram account.

“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!” he wrote, sharing several photos.

The cake was a replica of the hospital, and included separate additions with a doctor’s coat and scrubs.
