Nowadays i'm hitting the streets way more often with a POD in my hand. When I'm at home - i'm back on my RDA's. However I've been chasing a creamy smooth cigar like sweet tobacco. But something that would register on the palate in a POD.
This is all that, its a cigar like tobacco (Kentucky + Red Burley) - backed up with a THICC and dirty cream (RY4 Double + CAP Sweet Cream). With a good Vanilla to hold the two together (Holy Vanilla).
Sweeten to taste - I like it at 0.2% SS.
Heat 2 - Pudding
This is our submission for Heat 2 of the DIYDU vs TFV MixOff. This challenge is all about pudding, but ensuring that the hero of the recipe is the creamy element.

We decided to go retro, and create a full cream Panna Cotta. Interestingly enough, we only found 3 Panna Cotta recipes on ATF - and all of them use MB Panna Cotta - so creating this layer from scratch was part of the innovation we want to highlight in this recipe.
This is a White Chocolate Infused Panna Cotta - drizzled with Mixed Berry Coulis
Panna Cotta Layer
Traditionally a Panna Cotta is a sweet cream with a bit of gelatin added to help it set in the fridge. This is why we decided to go with CAP Sweet Cream, it has a full body dairy / cream behind it with a touch of sweetness, but it needs a little help - CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream, is a extremely underrated concentrate, here it helps fluff out the CAP Sweet Cream and adding a slight vanilla note to the mix that helps bridge the Panna Cotta Layer with the Mixed Berry Coulis Layer. Finally this delicate layer is infused with FLV White Chocolate - the creamy thick sweetness from this layer sets you up nicely to balance it with a mouthwatering tartness that inherently comes with berries.
Mixed Berry Coulis Layer
The mixed berry layer is made up of FLV Berry blend, an under utilised concentrate, this is a mix of red and dark berries with a slight syrupy mouthfeel to this we have added FLV Boysenberry low enough to impart the wonderful jammy qualities it posses without giving a lot of the flavour, this enhances the syrupy mouthfeel of berry blend, giving you a wonderful mixed berry coulis with a mouth watering tartness, the perfect topping for the Panna Cotta
This mix is beautiful off a shake and will just improve with time

This is a realistic full cream milk layer, you can vape this on its own - but it really screams for a top note, I would say good options are:
JF Sweet Strawberry 2%
INW Strawberry Shisha 2%
TFA Banana Cream 2.5%
HS Chocolate Cream 1.5 + CAP Double Chocolate V2 0.75%
Don't be afraid to add a little sweetener, as most flavoured milk has some sweetener in it.
FLV Milk & Honey - nice full milk flavour, has a darker sweetness to it
CAP Sweet Cream - There is a cheesyness to it that I am currently addicted to, it helps fill out the middle notes of the layer
TFA Dairy Milk - This adds depth to the whole layer, it also ads a prominent dairy note to the mix.
This is my first original recipe. I wanted to try my hand at something my family has loved since childhood. It turned out pretty good. The aftertaste is what seals this as a good rum ball. After the exhale you are left with the great flavor of thick dense chocolate cake and rum with just a hint of powdered sugar. That might be able to go up a little more. I'm going to keep working on this, though, so look for updates in the coming weeks.
I hope someone that loves these little delicacies gives it a shot and leaves some thoughts.
Thanks go to all the great people over on the DIY_Ejuice group over on discord for holding my hand at the beginning of my journey into DIY. You guys are the best.
Made a 3 2 1 quickie that I want to share with you guys - I find it difficult to get a custard just right. For me it needs to have a full thick mouth feel, with deep butter and light eggy notes. This is more of the custard base, look in the notes below for my recommendations on the vanilla.
INW Custard - This is a custard that develops in a week, so I used this one as it gets you 90% there.
CAP Sweet Cream - helps fill out the blank spots in the middle of INW Custard
CAP Golden Butter - This deepens the custard right from the start.
This is pretty much a custard base - admittedly this needs a harder Vanilla in it, I would reach for one of these if you prefer your vanilla HARDER! :)
-DFS Holy Vanilla at 1.2%
-CAP French Vanilla or 1.5%
-FA Madagascar (Vanilla Classic) 1%
Sweeten to taste, I like it sweet at 0.3% CAP SS.
