Congrats to this week's honorees! Most are still-high-trending Easter cookies, though a smattering of springtime and Mother's Day-themed cookies also registers among the hot list*. Special kudos to first-time Spotlightees, namely @SherylM for her darling Easter set with dimensional butterflies and @Sugartess for her impressive 3-D spring picnic scene. Enjoy . . .
Though . . . before the big reveal, one reminder! Don't forget that our current Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge (Heritage) is running through April 25, and it's all about YOU! We want to learn more about you, your family, your background, your home, and your life, all through cookies and royal icing! One randomly drawn entrant also gets a $100 gift certificate to one of my favorite online stores - Country Kitchen SweetArt. Thanks to @Sweet Prodigy for devising this challenge - it's a great opportunity to connect after a year that's been a little disconnected for most of us.
Now, without further ado, here are this week's ten top-trending cookie posts . . .
#1: Cookie Bouquet by Vanilla & Me [EDITOR'S NOTE: @Vanilla & Me was also our March cookie artist. I am furiously working on her Cookier Close-up interview questions - one of the perks of being a featured site artist - and hope to post that interview later this month or in early May. Stay tuned!]
#2: Bunny and Flower Cookies by mintlemonade (cookie crumbs)
#3: Floral Spring Picnic by Sugartess

So well done, everyone! I can't wait to see what you create next week. Keep the gorgeous cookies coming!
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.
