Amanda...I am so incredibly excited for you. And so incredibly excited that someday your beautiful creations will live in my kitchen...in a book...not just on the computer. With your help, I know I'll be able to make pretty cakes someday. Can't WAIT to see it.

Can I have your autograph?!? Really?

Darla | Bakingdom

Congratulations! That's so wonderful and fantastic and well deserved. :) I can hardly wait to get it; you're incredibly gifted.


Wow! that's a wonderful news Amanda! :) Congratulations! Looking forward to the release of your book :)


Ok... if you didn't know, I don't use the term "SQUEEE!!!!!" very often - it's reserved for truly momentous occasions. So excuse me but.. "SQUEEEEE!!!!!!" WOO HOO!!!
Ahem.. I feel better now.
Congratulations!!! All I can say "well, it's ABOUT time!!!

Seriously... could not be happier for you!!!

Liz (Little Bitty Bakes)

Congratulations! How exciting this must be for you. I'm thrilled for all of you baking bloggers writing books - I can't wait to see yours! (and the great thing about writing a blog is, you can have buttercream frosting in your hair, and we'd never know!)


AWESOME!!!!! I came along to your blog when I first saw the Jack-o-lantern cake and have loved you (and your blog) ever since! I would be first in line at your book signing. Then I could say I've met PW AND Amanda from I Am Baker/Mommy!!! Dream come true I tell ya! Really, I would buy your book and love every page, I'm sure! Good luck getting it all done on time. We'll still be here when you're able to breath afterwards. :)

Wonderful news! Congratulations on your major success! BUT! the important matter at hand is banana bread. I don't mean to be a bother, but I've been touting my banana bread for all of my baking life... and never seen another one like it. If you're at all interested in trying another recipe, please try this one. This is the recipe I've given to more than one wife-of-a-co-worker. I aim for marital happiness. :)
