Saturday Spotlight: Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge Entries And Other News

Hey, all! This week's Saturday Spotlight is taking on a very different shape than the norm (and coming a day early) for a couple of reasons: (A) I'm on "vacation" this weekend, and my husband is likely to wring my neck if I spend any time on the computer, and (B), if (A) wasn't good enough reason, there are a couple of important site "events" that I thought everyone should know about first and foremost.

First, The Cookie Architect's first-ever Practice Bake Perfect challenge closes on Saturday, May 31 at 12 midnight (heading into June 1). There's still time to put your last-minute touches on your challenge cookies, so fill up those pastry bags and get piping.


Or . . . just kick back and admire the 37 amazingly creative inspiration board-interpretations that have already been posted. Each is Spotlight-worthy in its own unique way, as you can here, listed in order of most recent entry onto the site:


Rebecca (The Cookie Architect) will be posting a complete challenge recap, along with the winner of the random drawing in our next Saturday Spotlight (June 7), so stay tuned for that!

As for the other site "event", Cookie Connection turns one year old on June 1 (by my rough calculations). Woo hoo!




And to celebrate that momentous occasion, we've got a terrific giveaway going on through June 15. Prize value totals $155 and includes this gorgeous 9-cutter cookie set from Whisked Away Cutters:

So, what are you waiting for?! Click on the challenge and giveaway links, and get yourself entered! 


Yikes! Gotta run! Hubby is giving me some threatening looks, so it's time to wrap up. Have a great weekend, everyone!
