Oooh, so exciting! My all-time fave cookie holiday is nearly here, so there's no time like the present to celebrate our top-trending Valentine's Day cookies with another valentine-themed Spotlight! (Our first one of 2019 posted two weeks ago, here.)
Naturally, hearts are well represented on this week's hot list*, but Practice Bakes Perfect challenge entries, roses, lace, and ruffles also feature prominently. Some cute-as-a-button animal-pals and love birds also factor in. No matter how wildly divergent their motifs, all of this week's honorees have one thing in common: they will make you fall head over heels! (I know, I know . . . I couldn't resist throwing in at least one Valentine's Day idiom. Please humor me! )
So onward . . . let's see who's topping this week's list, shall we?!
#1: Mini Pierniczki by Teresa Pękul
#3: Sparkling White by Alison Friedli
#5: Love, Love, Love . . . by DI ART
#6: Snow White by Alison Friedli [EDITOR'S NOTE: Another version of @Alison Friedli's love bird-topped houses - this time in all white royal icing, making it a contender in our ongoing monochrome challenge!]
#7: Winter Valentine by Sweet Prodigy [EDITOR'S NOTE: I'm inclined to give this one a new title. How's "Always Impeccable"?! ]
#8: Siempre Juntos (aka Always Together) by Sueños de Caramelo
#9: Valentine's Day Cookies by ANNA SWEET DESIGN
#10: Boho Blue Valentine! by Kim Damon [EDITOR'S NOTE: Another striking one-color entry in our current Practice Bakes Perfect challenge! It's open 'til February 17, so there's still plenty of time to join the fun - and potentially win @SugarVeil's very generous $150 gift certificate! Please check out the entry requirements here.]
And there you have it. So, LOVE-ly, right?! Doesn't this week's hot list* just make your heart go pitter-patter?! Congrats again to all listed here, and, everyone, please enjoy the rest of the weekend.
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.
