As has been the pattern since the inception of Cookie Connection, we've predictably hopped, skipped, and jumped from Valentine's Day right into Easter. So, seeing as we have a glut of Easter bunnies and chicks popping up all over the site, I thought I'd single out the top trenders in the Easter clip set this week. This week's featured cookies demonstrate that, indeed, oftentimes less is more. Though many of these cookies are sparing in their use of design flourishes, they are undeniably striking. Of course, such wouldn't be the case if not for the flawless piping and airbrushing that our featured artists have clearly mastered! Why fall back on embellishments to hide mistakes when one's flooding has attained the highest level of perfection?!
Before we take a peek at the hot list*, let's give extra applause to @The Vintage Cookie Jar, @Mariela Garcia, and @Cookies on Cambridge! Each of these artists has two featured sets this week; plus, Cookies on Cambridge nabbed the coveted cover spot. Her cheerful gingham bunnies epitomize all I've been talking about! Way to go, ladies!
And now, without further ado, here are the top ten Easter cookies on the site this past week . . .

And that's all for this week! Don't forget to turn your clocks ahead tonight, and stay tuned for our next challenge, which should post tomorrow or the next day, my schedule permitting.
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.
