Top Tips for Mini Potion Bottle Toppers:

  • Colour your sugar paste using sugar flair food colour to create the colours you would like for the potion bottles.
  • Flatten the base of your potion bottles so they have something to stand up on.  
  • If the neck of the bottle is a little long, just cut it off using a scalpel.
  • When using the ball tool in the neck of the bottle, keep your thumb and finger around the neck so the shape does not become distorted.   
  • Using white nonpareils will create a bubble like effect on your potion bottles.
  • You can also make these a bit bigger and they can act as a topper in their own right.
