    Hi Hailey,
    Refer to the flavour you are using and go with that recommended amount. The strength of flavours can vary and is best worked from the flavour not the base.

    What % of flavor oil do you recommend using?

    Hi Maria,

    Allow them to cool a little more before pouring. The holes in the top are caused by shrinkage

    How do you get the flat tops ? Mine seem to have little holes on the top, and when I top them op, there’s a dome?
