I have bought tickets for your show when you are in Abu Dhabi to surprise them and would love to be able to meet you and get a picture with you of all of us. I know youll be really busy but thought i would make my humble request anyway. Hope you have a great trip to Abu Dhabi whether we get to meet you or not. Best Regards,

Hi, my name is Amanda and I'm 13 years old. I bake and decorate cakes. I always watch next great baker and as I read the comments I'm obviously not the only person under the age of 18 with a talent for baking and decorating. This season of next great baker is teams which is switching it up from the other seasons, and would just like you to think about having a kids season, like for people 17 and younger. So many talented young bakers like myself would love to showcase our talent in the competition that we watch and dream of being on all the time. I doubt but really hope that you will actually see this.

Each time I add food coloring to your Vanilla Cake recipe the cake collapses when it cools. Can you please help?? I've made this recipe without the food coloring and it has always turned out fantastic! When I add food coloring I first follow the recipe to make the batter and then add liquid food coloring to get the desired color. I use your recipe posted on the Rachel Ray website and opt to use vegetable oil. The cake rises in the oven. I don't open the oven door during the first 80% of the baking, only near the end to test for doneness. When I take the cake out of the oven it looks wonderful. But after several mins on the cooling rack (still in the pans) it then begin to sink and cave in on itself. I'm left with a concave cake that very dense in the middle, and certainly nothing I've even consider serving to anyone other than the garbage can. Any ideas as to what the issue or issues may be? Is this recipe incompatible with food coloring? Should I try gel coloring? I'm not one to excessively mix the batter, but could simply the extra mixing from blending the food coloring be the culprit? I've tested my baking powder, ruling that out. Any suggestion or help would be greatly appreciated. I so desperately want this vanilla cake recipe work with colors. Please help! Thanks so much.

Because of the show I know mama is sick with ALS and trying to find a cure. I wanted to connect the Valastro family with the Christiansen family, who are too fighting ALS. Seth is 39 and started experiencing ALS symptoms at age 34. He and Amy have four children, ranging in age from 4 to 13.
The Christansens have created, The ALS Crowd, a site created to help educate and empower ALS patients and to close the gap between ALS patients and ALS doctors/researchers. They have a new online radio show called ALS Crowd Radio, hosted by ALS patient Seth Christensen, He connects top ALS researchers with patients and help patients understand the very latest discoveries.
The link to this page is: http://alscrowd.org/
They also are getting in touch with local news trying to spread the word. Here is their latest interview. You can just tell from the video that they are an absolutely incredible, god loving family.
Please share this with Buddy. The Christansens are an incredible family and I know together these families will find a cure!
God bless you,

Dear Carlo's Bakery,
Hi my name is Sienna Miley I am currently attending in Wood River High School in Hailey Idaho as a sophomore. Our school is converting to an international bacaloriat school with this new change each student is required to do a sophomore or personal project which is a huge project where each student pick their own interest and dose a project on it some examples include designing a dress, building a guitar, planning an invent and job shadowing. I love backing and for my personal project a want to job shadow a baker and how better than the Cake Boss himself.
About two years ago I became really interested in cooking and baking, since then I have cooked about two or more meal each night for my family and I bake like crazy so much so that I have to bring my creations to school my dad's work and lots of other places to get rid of them. I learn so much about baking from Buddy and the "crew" just by watching Cake Boss and I cannot even imagine how much I can learn from getting to job shadow one of them.
You are probably wondering where I am getting at with all this. I was wondering if Buddy or any other baker at Carlo's Bakery would give me the amazing opportunity as to job shadow them over spring break? I do understand if you are too busy but I believe that this is a wonderful opportunity for both my and your bakery, and I hope you consider it.
If you would like to know more about me and some of my hobbies and interest feel free to click on this link http://mileysie000.wix.com/sienna-miley , there you can also view a copy of my resume.

Hi buddy! I'm 12, and I live in Tulsa OK. I'm moving back to my hometown soon though, which is Las Vegas. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 2 years ago, and 1 year later, I was diagnosed with celiac disease. This means I can't have even the tiniest bit of wheat, oats, barley, or rye. I LOVE your baking show and all your cakes, and I am inspired by you so much! I am really taking into thought of opening a completely, 100% gluten free bakery. (Gluten is wheat, oats, barley and rye). So I was thinking that maybe you could make a gluten free cake option for celiacs like me? I think it would be great to do this, and lots of people would try it. I would ABSOLUTELY buy it and try it! Sorry this is so long, but I love all your cakes and I hope you can try and make this happen!

I am such a big fan of yours and i watch your shows all the time i love to bake myself and and i am quiet good at baking myself. however i would love to fly new york and work with you so you can help with some tips and teach me the art of baking and decorating these amazing cakes that you do. This would honestly be my dream come true as this is what i love to do and would love to hear back from you. hope to hear from you.

My niece is graduating from Kindergarten on May 22nd and she is one of your BIGGEST fans! We signed up to bring a cake for the class and of course the only cake she wants is one made by you. WELL, since we are in FL that is a little hard to do and we have gone into several stores to find one large enough for her class, that to has been difficult. I'm not sure if this a shot in the dark or I am writing to the correct address, but we need help getting YOUR cake to her class. If there is any way you can offer assistance I would greatly appreciate it.
A Loving Aunt

Do you know of anyone in or around Toledo Ohio that can make special cakes. I know it is out of the question to ask you wish it wasn't but it is. We are having our 50th class reunion in May and I thought if someone could make a replica of our school it would be neat. Do you know anyone that can do that besides you and doesn't cost a arm and leg. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Hi Buddy! I have recently started baking more and decided to try to make my own frosting. The problem I'm running into is a gritty texture. I just can't seem to get rid of it no matter what I do. I've sifted my powdered sugar, melted the butter first, used a whisk attachment on my blender, tried mixing by hand, all to no avail. I would love if you could help. Thanks! Melissa Gant

I'm a 16 year old girl from England and I am studying food at school for one my GCSES. For our exam we were given countries and we had to cook food from our given country, we have to make a main course and a dessert, I was given Italy and do not know of any desserts that I could make, as we are only given an hour to cook, I just don't know what I can cook and I was wondering of you know of anything that I could make. It would really make my day if you had any ideas of what I could make, thank you for your help in advance.

¡Hola! Buddy I'm like one of your biggest fan and I've been baking since I was 12 and I bought over $200 worth of supplies because when I watch your show it inspires me to do what I love doing. I've googled everything to help me smooth a cake to where it looks like it's been covered in fondant. Nothing helped so I turn to the expert of frosting a excellent smooth cake. Is there any tips or directions what I can do to frost a cake that smooth?
02/04/2014 at 08:37 PM
Hi Buddy, I love your show, I watch it almost everyday. I wanted to know if I could email or talk with you personally without making a consultation. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org so if you could please email me back at that email that would be great. I also really want to own a bakery when I'm older if you could give me some tips on owning a bakery that would be awesome.
Sincerely,Colin Reid mandell
