Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies

 

Hi, all! Thanks for allowing me a brief reprieve from Spotlights last weekend. I am still deeply under water with my workload, and anticipate being that way through the end of October, so I ask for continued patience. While there was a wee gap in the calendar tonight, I suspect I will have to skip an occasional Spotlight or two between now and when I finally see light at the end of the tunnel. (The combination of my online cookie competition, my new website, and a large, seven-week-long cookie decorating class, all hitting me at once, has my nose pretty constantly to the grindstone.)

Anywho, this small window of calm tonight has let in a huge ray of sunlight! Many of the cookies on this hot list* shout summer (or are just plain fun), and all are universally stunning. What's even greater is the fact that we've got two newcomers to the Spotlight (if I'm not mistaken)! Special congrats to @VCHT Cookie ART and @coco.icingcookie, who also earned the coveted cover spot with her set entitled "Summer Dream". And dreamy, it is!

Let's see the other stunners on the list, shall we?!

And, last but not least, a darling set, first posted in 2017, that's getting a lot of attention again this week. Of course, it's easy to see why!

Again, really lovely work, everyone! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. If the Cookie Gods are with me next week, hopefully I'll get through my planned class prep quicker than usual and have surplus Spotlight time again next Saturday!

* 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.

@VCHT Cookie ART - Congrats on your Spotlight!

I only send this info via PM, so if you would like to receive it, please change your permissions on your member profile, and please let me know when you have changed them. Thanks!
