Halloween isn't quite over yet . . . Hold on a sec, I think I hear trick-or-treaters at my door . . . Ahh, so cute, a little troll and her baby jack-o-lantern brother . . .

 

Sorry, where was I? Yes, it's not quite over, but I'm scraping the bottom of the candy basket right now, as the trick-or-treating winds down. So here I am, left in an ambiguous zone. It's too late to spotlight more Halloween cookies, though they continue to run rampant (and gorgeous) on the site. And Christmas - believe it or not, I've had my fill of it already with all of my holiday video prep this week.

 

So . . . what better recourse in in-between times like these than another best of category spotlight?! It's sure to clean up the decorating "cobwebs" in my brain, and open me up to a whole new world of creative possibilities!

* 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.

 
 

Live sweetly,
