This post is a virtual baby shower for Amanda, of I Am Baker. If you are regular reader, you know I adore her and her blog. She is a bright bloggy star who, aside from being just blogging friends, I can say is a true friend as well.

Funny thing is we have never met face-to-face but we talk on a regular basis. That goes for all the other bloggers participating in this virtual shower. We are all part of a gaggle group that Skype on a daily basis. We’ve become friends through our common passion for food, photography and blogging. Beyond that we talk about our kids, our family, we laugh, we vent—we are there to support one another. While this may sound a bit foreign for those outside of blogging or social networking, our friendship with one another is really not all that different than any other friendship.

So when Kristan of Confession of a Cookbook Queen coordinated this virtual baby shower, I along with everyone participating was happy and excited to bake and post something for Amanda.

Congratulations once more, Amanda! Even greater times are ahead for you and your family. Enjoy!

And on a bloggy note: Um, I will entertain the new baby boy via Skype so you can keep baking and posting delicious cakes.  

To my readers, no recipe for this post. Stay tuned for a step-by-step tutorial on how to make these sugar cookie flags. And check back tomorrow for a must make treat!
