Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Valentine's Day Cookies

 

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, there's no shortage of said cookies on the site, and, so, I'm featuring love-themed beauties for the second time in a month! Call me predictable if you'd like, but don't dare say the same of the cookies on this week's hot list*! Though they all feature hearts in some way, they all take Valentine's Day cookies to sublime and unexpected levels with their masterful decorating. I do declare, this must be our prettiest Spotlight yet!

Congrats to everyone highlighted here, and may everyone else find loads of cookie inspiration for their loved ones!

* 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.

Thank you! 

So many hearts, and what a variety! Congrats!

*The cookie I made is a mini version of the Cream Tart, which seems to be very trendy at the moment. I don’t know who first had the idea to make this kind of tart arranged and decorated in this way: one or two biscuit layers filled with cream and decorated with flowers, fruit, macarons or whatever on the layer on top. I developed this concept of the tart and translated into cookies decorated with royal icing (filling and decorations). I was inspired by Adi Klinghofer, who has been making and posting her Cream Tarts on her feed since last year in the shapes of letters, numbers and also hearts (Instagram: @adikosh123).

@Manu I just had to look at @adikosh123 on Instagram after your credit to her work. Her work is magnificent!!! Your inspired cookie design is every bit as beautiful and so creative using the medium of cookies, RI and fondant. Fabulous work dear @Manu ❤️❤️
