Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Mothers' Day Cookies

 

With Mothers' Day just around the corner here in the US, it seems only fitting to highlight the top-trenders in this clip category tonight! And because we all know moms everywhere love flowers, it should come as no surprise that most (all?) of the cookies on this week's hot list* feature flowers in a very significant way.

Special congrats to @TammyHolmes for making this hot list twice, and also for earning the coveted cover spot for her perfume bottle set's stunning color combination and skillful use of mixed media. Also, congrats to two newcomers to our Spotlights, @Laura Saporiti and @Olga Goloven! I hope we'll be seeing a lot more of their work in the future.

And on we go to this week's featured artists . . . well done, everyone!

#1: Cookie Bouquet by Vanilla & Me [EDITOR'S NOTE: This wonderful bouquet by @Vanilla & Me, aka Svetla, has been trending high for a few weeks now. The perfect piping, striking color choices, and careful attention to packaging and photo styling are just some of the reasons why. You should all be pleased to know that our Cookier Close-up with Svetla is well on its way to being done. I hope to post it next week, because I know you're all as eager as I am to learn more about Svetla and her glorious work!]

Again, so well done, everyone! Here's hoping that Mothers' Day brings all of you flowers and flower cookies as beautiful as these!

Housekeeping note: I will be out of town next weekend and the following week, continuing the move into my newly renovated summer house. We don't yet have internet at the house, but, cell phone hot spot willing, I intend to post another Spotlight next weekend as usual. Fingers crossed!

* 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.

@Manu  This is really a great gift!  Our cookie 😍is in top 10, what a memorable thing to be!   Sincerely I thank you for making this cookie for me, Manu.  And @Julia M. Usher, thank you💕 My birthday is the day to remember I have many wonderful friends here on Cookie Connection.  

Congratulations to all who are featured.  These cookies are really beautiful and I am sure that mothers are extremely happy to get them. 

Thank you so much for the feature, and congrats to all fellow cookiers!

When I uploaded the cookie and scrolled through the different clip categories I thought that this cookie that I made for my friend @Ryoko ~Cookie Ave. could fit also “Mothers' Day Cookies” or anything related to a gift idea for a woman, beside “Girls'/Women's Birthday Cookies”. I didn’t expect it would be featured a couple of days later in the Cookie Connection Spotlight. Well, I am very happy, as this reinforces the meaning of connections that the cookie represents.  

What incredible work!! I am always so excited to see the spotlights. Thank you Julia @Julia M. Usher. With all that you do, I don't know how you find the time to add this into your schedule...but it's appreciated more than you may know . Great editor comments about the highlights of each clip set. The artists have done such beautiful and creative work. I love each and every cookie design shown here ❤️❤️❤️ Hugs...
