Saturday Spotlight: This Month's Hottest Cookies

Aha! I betcha thought I'd be posting the week's top 10 wedding cookies (after all, June is wedding month). Or the hottest Fourth of July cookies to celebrate that imminent holiday in my home country. But, noooo . . . I fooled you. This week, it's none of the above, and nothing teased on the Cookie Connection home page!

Because today marks the end of Cookie Connection's first month, I thought it fitting that we commemorate the past 3 to 4 weeks of the site's exciting, crazy-busy life by celebrating the ten hottest* cookies of the month! Hold onto your seats; each of these cookies amazes in its own unique way!

 

#1: Topping the list, undeniably for its striking detail, is Paisley Flower by Art & Honey.

#2: It was only a matter of time before De Koekenbakkers hit a top spot for her spectacular 3-D work - this time, it's Snoopy's Dog House!

#3: "Magical" sums up this month's third-place creation, Princess Cookies by Happy Loris Baking Company.

#4: And the fourth spot goes (coincidentally) to a fabulous 4-D cookie, complete with moving parts - Cookie Boxes and Chest by Vivi Ciak.

#5: "Wow" is the word for these fondant-covered Wedding Cakes by Tina at Sugar Wishes

#6: This stylish cookie had many of us doing double-takes. Congrats to Au Claire de la Lune for Vintage Fashion.

#7: Simply called Flowers, our seventh place cookie set, crafted by two-time winner The Cookie Lab, speaks (boldly!) for itself.

#8: Another back-to-back winner, Ali's Sweet Tooth takes eighth for this incredibly lifelike set. Not sure if I should eat them or wear them!

#9: Spring Hippos (not to be confused with Summer Hippos ) made a splash this month as well. Hoorah for Creative Cookies Belgrade!

#10: Last but not least, Creative Cookies Belgrade does it AGAIN, this time with elephants festooned with intricate details!

So . . . what did you think? A great first month, right?!

 

Please give all of these fabulous cookiers a shout-out by sharing this post with friends or in your favorite social media outlets. (Handy share links are at the bottom of this post!)

 

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone! And for those of you in the US, enjoy your Fourth of July as well! (Who knows, maybe I'll feature all those dazzling stars and stripes next week?! )

 

* 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. But what you see here is who was hottest over the previous month at the time of this post!

 

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.

I am truly honored to be among such a talented group of bakers. Literally in tears of joy for the recognition. Funny I had a bridal business for 20 years so the love shows.

Thank you all for your support and honor!!!!!!!!

 And congratulation to my fellow winners! You are all such a talented group of woman,to be on the same page with you is amazing. 

 

By the way this is a truly international show of talent. The site ,in less then one month touched cookie bakers from around the world! Outstanding networking!

Julia, I just told you yesterday that this is the first site I check out in the morning.  I couldn't believe what was in store for me this morning.  I admire each and every one of the other decorators who are included on this top ten list of the month.  

 

Happy one month anniversary to Cookie Connection!  It's an amazing site and I wish you continued success!!

Congrats to you all - the site is just a place; it's those who participate in it who make it feel special, kind of like home!

P.S. I too love the fact that there are cookiers from every corner of the globe on this site. It's been especially interesting to see how cookies vary stylistically from person to person and place to place. (I think there are some geographical differences/traditions, and there's a lot to be learned from those differences).

Thank you so much for all the likes received.  its an honor to be among all the beautiful and stunning creations shown in this site. 

Thanks Julia the Cookies Conection, that makes possible to bring together the passion and love for cookies around world.

congratulations to all of you showing your work.

all the best, Marta

MY APOLOGIES: I just received word that some people are disappointed because I did not feature all of the winning cookies in my teaser image (first image in this post) and failed to tag everyone on Facebook. 

 

I have now tagged everyone in Facebook and recirculated that post: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151458495992190&set=a.121082077189.114283.62186847189&type=1&theater

 

As further apology, I also paid to promote the new post, so it will get enhanced visibility on Facebook.

 

As for the teaser image, it's just that - usually I select two or three images from the list that best color-coordinate to make an image that will draw more attention to the post on Facebook. (Seriously - they're not a reflection of personal preference. And If I don't do this, no image will come up on Facebook - for some reason, it pulls no images from this site, or the wrong image every time.) Again, I apologize to anyone who might have been upset by this decision of mine. In an effort to get these posts out on time in the middle of what is usually a very busy schedule, I opted to make smaller collages as a tease rather than putting everyone's image into the collage.
