When I decorate my cookies with dots they seem to sink in and get holes in them when they dry. Can anyone tell me why or what I am doing wrong. I use the glace icing (corn syrup/powder sugar). Thanks.

this is a common problem that many people experience. Unfortunately, there hasn't seemed to be a good solution that I've heard! Personally I think it has something to do with the inner portion of the icing drying slower than the surface, the molecules under the surface are still liquid and can move, so the outside collapses.

Wish I could help more... I have less trouble with it when I use a thinker icing....
