If ever there was a theme to a Spotlight, this one is it! Gnomes have been lurking around Cookie Connection all week, and many (I count six) have managed to dance themselves all the way to the top of our hot list*! Clearly, there's a new gnome craze out there in cookie land!
Before I introduce all of these little creatures (plus, some top-trending non-gnome cookies), a shout-out to three newcomers (I believe) to our Spotlight: @Little-Fancies, @Jani May Cookie Artist, and @Megan Britt! I do think this could be a new newcomer record! Congrats, ladies!
And, without further ado, let's see what mischief these gnomes were cooking up on the site this week! But, first a non-gnome or two . . .
#1: Romantic Cookies by Evelindecora
#2: First Birthday Set by Little-Fancies
#3: Lil Lava Java by iSugarfy (aka swissophie)
#4: Bee Mine by The Vintage Cookie Jar
#5: Horse Portrait by Ewa Kiszowara MOJE PIERNIKI
#6: Gnomes in Love by Jani May Cookie Artist
#7: Inauguration Day by Bakerloo Station
#8: Embroidery Fun by Megan Britt
#9: To Gnome Me Is To Love Me by Tina at Sugar Wishes
And, last, a very elegant non-gnome . . .
#10: Sri Lankan Bride by Zeena
Go big or go gnome, as they say! Congrats again, everyone, on your fine work. I'll see you next weekend at this same spot and time!
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.
