Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies

 

Hi, everyone! This week's Spotlight is a straight-up pure, unadulterated "top 10", yet, even so, Mothers' Day cookies clearly dominate it. With flowers, jewelry, more flowers, birds, a gilded tea time set, and even more flowers, this hot list* has beautiful cookies galore, all of which would make wonderful gifts for mom. Even if you don't have enough time to crank out a set by tomorrow, bookmark this post and use it as inspiration when next year's Mothers' Day rolls around!

Congrats to all of our honorees, but especially to @Vanilla & Me, whose floral cookies have been riding high (in the top spot) for at least a few weeks, and to @Cookies Fantastique, @The Vintage Cookie Jar, and @Cookie’s Studio by Elena, who are all two-time winners this week. And let's not forget @Alejandra Avila, who's making her very first Spotlight appearance with an outstanding set!

And that's a wrap for this week! I hope everyone has a great Mothers' Day tomorrow - hopefully with some long-awaited reunions with moms, grandmothers, and great grandmothers. Stay safe, but have fun celebrating your loved ones!

* 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.

Again, lovely work, everyone! @Gina's Cake, I am having trouble finding your social media pages to tag you on social media when I post this Spotlight. If you have Facebook and Instagram accounts, please send them to me so I can tag you. BETTER YET (AND THIS APPLIES TO EVERYONE ON THE SITE), please put your social media accounts in your Cookie Connection member profile. This way, I am assured of being able to tag you if you get featured on the site (again). Thanks.

Congratulations to each cookier featured here!! Your work is so deserving of this honor. I feel humbled and honored to be included in this week's spotlight. Thank you very much ❤️. The work on CC is always so beautiful and very detailed. I love this site for MANY reasons ❤️. I feel such a sense of belonging in my journey as a cookier. I have learned SO much from all of you!! Julia, @Julia M. Usher What really sets this site apart from other cookier sites is the close friendships that I dearly cherish! It doesn't matter that we may never meet in person...what we have here is warm and heartfelt 😘. Thank you again ❤️❤️❤️
