Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


Ooooh, it's another one of those eclectically beautiful times, when we're fresh off one holiday and not yet ready for the next, and we find our cookies taking on wide-ranging themes that often defy our own imaginations. Admittedly, a few people on today's hot list* have hopped right onto Easter, but many are wavering in that nebulous space somewhere between Valentine's Day and spring. As you'll see below, our honorees are delighting us this week with everything from hearts and Easter bunnies to water lilies, embroidery, architecture, and even neoclassical garden scenes! And each and every cookie is absolutely gorgeous!

Enjoy, and, as you're doing that, please be sure to say congrats to our Spotlightees!

And that's a wrap for this week's Spotlight! Though before I leave you to the rest of your weekend, I'd like to remind you of a few upcoming site events! First, @Ryoko ~Cookie Ave.'s chat will post late on February 28. If you haven't yet asked her any questions about her unique cookie storytelling abilities, please do so before the end of day tomorrow (February 25) in her chat room here. Also, @Manu has another awesome tutorial coming our way in just a few days, and I'll be posting our Cookier Close-up with @GinkgoWerkstatt, our February site artist, shortly after that. As always, there's lots of action here on Cookie Connection, so please stay tuned!

* As a reminder, a word about how the rankings are determined: The rankings are not at all subjective. In fact, they are determined essentially by you, our members, and the activity (number of views, likes, and comments) you've bestowed on each photo. The site uses a top-secret algorithm that weighs these various factors to determine which photos are trending most quickly (i.e., are the "hottest") over specified periods of time. As such, the hot list at the time of this announcement may look a little different a few hours or a day from now as more photos are added to the site.

So that no one has an unfair advantage in making it onto a hot list, the algorithm is secret even to site administrators. Only our platform developers know the code, which has been exhaustively tested by those developers and Cookie Connection staff.

All photos shown here are the courtesy (and copyright) of the designers listed.

To check out our other hot lists, at any time of day, visit our Hot Spot, also found in the site's main navigation line.
