Hi, I'm back after a weekend off from Spotlights. Thanks for your patience as I pushed through some other work deadlines last week. (Shhh! I am developing a possible new product line, so my time and focus are also getting pulled in that direction - and will be for a while.) Anyway, I hope you all had a restful, happy, and - most important - safe and healthy past several days.
Between our awesome challenge entries and the usual high caliber work that gets posted to Cookie Connection, our hot list* is AH-MAZE-ING this week! Special congrats to @Dolce Flo and @Evelindecora who each had three mentions, for both fresh work and work that has been lingering high on our list for a few weeks. Also, more special congrats to @Yulia Bunnell for her first Spotlight with her first Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge entry. A double whammy! Well done, you three!
Without further ado, on to the big reveal and the rest of our talented honorees . . .

That's a wrap! Reminder: Next weekend, our Spotlight will be the recap of @Sweet Prodigy's debut challenge (food look-alikes). I await it on pins and needles, because the entries have been so abundant and so fabulous. How, oh how, will our judges decide which to feature?! Stay tuned to find out, and, in the meantime, if you have a last-minute entry, don't delay in posting it. The challenge (more info here) closes at 5 pm CT tomorrow, Sunday, May 3.
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.
