(GASP!) Just breathtaking, right?! Great work, honorees! Happy weekend to all (and happy long weekend to those in the US)!

* 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.

They are all stunning Julia, thank you for posting this.  I thought they were just posting on the slides.  Hopefully, I will be a little bit this wonderful at decorating cookies,  watching all your video and practicing constantly.

Thanks for the kind words, though I don't know what you mean by "I thought they were just posting on the slides"?? Please clarify, and perhaps I can help clarify!

I meant I was just looking at the slides on the side bar at all the beautiful cookie art.  I had not noticed the HotSpot link in the top bar, I saw it after you posted this.  I usually just click the photo in the slide.  Thank you I have saw all the tutorials and other things, on the top bar but, had missed the hotspot one.

Ahhh, yes, the "hot spot" shows exactly what's trending hottest at any one point in time; it automatically updates every few minutes. I draw each week's honorees for this post from that list. But often, by the time I finish writing the post, which can take a few hours, the list has changed! 

From the end of last year, I was kind of busy and didn't have time or motivation for cookie decorating, so that is my first set after a month break, which is the longest in my whole cookie life. I realised I still love to decorate cookies, learning something new.

Thank you so much everyone here and congratulations to all💕

Proud to be amongst such talented cookiers and so big THANKS to Julia and all the members who made it possible for my cute little Mother's Day Bunny to be featured in Top 10 xx

Congrats again, but I just post the cookies that the site says were trending highest, so no need to thank me. All thanks goes to the members who viewed, commented on, and liked your photo!
