What a delight it was to return from vacation - nearly two weeks without a cookie in sight - to discover the many magnificent creations posted here on Cookie Connection in that short time! You certainly eased my cookie withdrawal with your ingenuity and skill!
Your work is also a constant reminder that just about anything can be cookie-fied! With everything from shiny snails and Japanese landscapes to a remarkably realistic 3-D wedding ring box, this week's hot list* is testament to the diversity that can be cooked up with just a little dough and royal icing. Congrats, everyone!

Have a great rest of the weekend and next week. And stay tuned for a glut of tutorials and articles soon to be posted to the site - I'm slowly working through my editing backlog that accumulated while enjoying that dreamy Maine seascape last week!
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.
