Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


This "Welcome Back" cookie by @Ryoko ~Cookie Ave. is an apt cover image considering it's been a couple of weeks since I wrote a Spotlight! It's not only apropos, it's also impossibly cute! What a joyful sight. Thank you, Ryoko!

Joining Ryoko on our hot list* this week are nine other fabulous cookiers whose works range from dimensional floral creations to all-out 3-D birthday and fairy constructions! Fall and Halloween have also made their first appearances of the year, with wonderfully textured autumn leaves by @Kim Damon and spooky creations by @Iliana Hernández and Spotlight newbie @KUMIKO KISHI!

Way to go, everyone - and especially to those new to this list and to two-time honoree @Dani Matos!

Congrats again to all of this week's honorees!

Last, one housekeeping note: Before anyone gets too comfortable with me being back, I wanted to let you know that I'm taking my first vacation of the year starting on September 18 and returning on September 27. Since this is a special 25th wedding anniversary getaway, I'll be doing absolutely no work while away, so, regrettably, we will be without another Spotlight 'til October 3. However, do stay tuned - my end-of-month return is going to coincide with lots of activity here on Cookie Connection! In addition to having two great tutorials (courtesy of @Manu biscotti decorati and @Aproned Artist) coming your way circa September 27, our next "Cookiers Helping Cookiers" live chat with @SugarDotCookies is slated for October 3 at 10 am central. I hope to see many of you there! And, of course, we have a new challenge from @Sweet Prodigy (combined with a surprise announcement) coming as early as tomorrow!

* 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.
