Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


I've just got to preface this week's Spotlight with a huge "OMG"! I'm not sure if you noticed, but we had an unprecedented number (and quality) of last-minute entries into our latest "Inside the Box" Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge. Yes, hard to believe, but 13 3-D box cookies were added to the challenge in the last 24 hours, many of which are astounding. A huge round of applause to all who entered. I am SO impressed!

Christine (aka @Bakerloo Station) will, of course, be doing her usual recap of the challenge entries for our next Saturday Spotlight. This Spotlight in no way replaces hers, but, as impressive as today's entries and the earlier ones are, many have sky-rocketed onto this week's hot list*. We've also got some pretty incredible non-challenge, seasonal 2-D cookies on the list, such as @Olivera Vlah's cover image, so please read on for both 3-D and summertime inspiration galore!

Wow, what a wonderful showing this week! Again, please stay tuned for next week's Spotlight, where Christine will give her usual thoughtful review of the challenge and introduce her next equally exciting one!

* 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.

Congratulations to all featured!  They are so beautiful and look so yummy!  All those 3D cookies are really amazing.   I wonder how they could make something straight up and something beautifully perfectly curved and round.   

Now I feel like I want to make something summer!
