“Next thing I knew I was bleeding and surrounded by airbags,” he wrote in a caption accompanying a photo of a bandaged hand.

He claimed a “drunk driver had swerved into my lane on a windy country road.”

“After doing a systems check and finding that my only injury was to my hand I thanked my lucky stars that I’d still be there to celebrate her third birthday even if I couldn’t make her a cake,” he wrote.

As for the extent of the pastry chef’s injuries, he noted that he’s “fine” but “it’s gonna be a long road to recovery, and for someone like me who makes a living with my hands you can imagine that this is no joke.”

In Sept. 2023, Goldman signed a multi-year, multi-project deal with Food Network, continuing to star in various TV shows including Ace of Taste, Halloween Cookie Challenge and the Baking Championship franchise.

Goldman has not yet responded to The Hollywood Reporter‘s request for comment.
