SURPRISE! I've decided to change things up in this Spotlight! While the photos on this site are always fab, they have a way of overshadowing our equally fabulous blog content. Raise your hand if the first place you check when you come to Cookie Connection is the "Clips" section . . .
Yes, I thought so . . . I am a creature of that same habit too. Well, this week, I hope to turn around that trend by reacquainting you with the massive amount of quality information on our blog - thanks to our many talented contributors who started writing for the site as early as 2013! This week, I'm featuring the ten top-trending* blog posts over the last 24 hours, excluding any Saturday Spotlights featuring photos. So, in other words, what you're about to see are the day's most popular articles, recaps, and tutorials.
Dig in, and prepare to be enriched by the many words of wisdom, clever decorating tips, and business insights peppered throughout these posts. And, please say thank you to our contributors, past and present, along the way! This site would not be the valuable resource it is if not for their hard work. Special congrats to @Liesbet for having four featured posts - her in-depth ingredient tests are as popular today as when she first wrote them!
(P.S. If you see any weird formatting in earlier posts, i.e., 2015 or prior, such as missing photos or extra line breaks, I apologize. When our site changed to its current photo-centric mode a few years ago, the formatting of some older posts got messed up, and I simply haven't had the time or resources to fix these things. All the same great content is still there, however.)
