I got inspiration from a post on Mixin Vixens FACEBOOK post for Lemon Cookies and I have had this recipe on the back burner for a while mulling over the idea and I finally added it to ATF as my final recipe. This is far from a new recipe it's just been in my recipe book for way to long. It was the lemon part that took me forever to get right as FE Lemon is so real as a flavor but I did not want it in your face.. The Lemon Squares WF is a nice custard like of a flavor with subtle lemon flavors but creamy enough for a cookie. Biscuit Base VTA along with Holy Vanilla DFS and Cookie FLV are all for the nice down home cookie taste.
Pippa Starr gets FULL CREDIT on the FE Lemon.. She told me about so long ago and When I got it it was just as she said..
This is a Swedish style Cinnamon Apple Cake, which is usually made with yellow cake and served with vanilla custard.
Don't think the flavors needs much explaining, but I'll do it briefly.
FA Fuji crisp, jucy and very realistic apple flavor, at 2% is just the right amount to get that feel of small chopped apple pieces in the cake.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl and JF Yellow Cake serves as the cake base, with CDS bringing the cinnamon spice that we all know and love pairs beautifully with apple.
DFS Holy Vanilla is a an amazing rich, creamy and eggy vanilla flavor that emulates the traditional vanilla custard and blends perfect together with the whole mix.
Best give it a few days of steep to let the yellow cake work it's magic, so you get that great fluffy cake texture.
To get the real "fika" experience, this is best vaped together with a cup of coffee.
Simple 1-2-3 boysenberry yogurt. In my opinion this is spot on "Yoplait", those small dessert style vanilla yogurts.
What really makes it here is the combo of FW Yogurt and DFS Holy Vanilla, as it brings that creamy vanilla yogurt flavor and mouthfeel. Added a relatively high dose of FLV Boysenberry for that very sweet, jammy and delicious berry flavor on top of that.
Having failed with many vanillas for tobacco (and I have like 8 now!), being a bit vanilla blind (but loving the stuff!) was looking for a profile that hit like infamous V-GOD Silver. This has an excessively sweet vanilla profile (saturates on my Entheon clone!) but is not too bad on an RDA, the tobacco is hidden in the back but is regrettably enjoyable. This being far away, but IMHO much better!
INW Biscuit - an amazing sweet, full, delicate vanilla biscuit which holds nicely with the tobacco
DFS Holy Vanilla - I'm afraid for a slightly vanilla-impaired like myself it is amazing, as hyped!
The rest is a classic Flavorah tobacco, which comes alive after 1 week steeping. I went with:
FLV Kentucky Blend - the ash profile, wich needs a little help from its colleagues
FLV Native Tobacco - probably my favorite from Flavorah, spicy bright (I vape it at 4% with no shame!)
FLV Red Burley - gives it the dark, chocolaty profile and connects with the heavy vanilla
ZING is the first word that came into my head because it's that kinda lemon style mix. It's got some zing yet the balance of flavor is a very pleasant thing!
Kinderground recently spoke of the loveliness of VTA Sour Lemon & FE Lemon working together, I think it was on "Noted" on the DIY or DIE YT channel.
While I know those flavors well, before this recipe I can't recall putting these together but I am very glad I did. Me being me, wanted to go to the extreme and also offer a little zest note that the other lemons lack (not a bad thing), hence a little FA Lemon Zest was added & works really well here I think.
Now as pleasant as that little lemon trinity is, it's not a stand alone vape rather it's more of a stone to use in other profiles like this.
To make things simplish I thought, lets add this "Trinity" to a custard. A custard that's full, creamy and a little sweet to compliment the lemons and mellows out those higher lemon notes that keeps things lovely and balanced. After playing with a few combinations I really enjoy the full yet smooth mouthfeel of how FA Custard premium works with Butterscotch Ripple and a little Holy Vanilla.
Altogether after an at least 7 day steep allowing for the lemons to settle and the creams to meld this comes together in a way that I think is lovely and offers a balance to the "Zing" of the lemons.
IMO this is a very pleasant and enjoyable vape on a single coil RDA at 60W with a SST single coil at 0.2 ohm
I hope you enjoy this just as much as enjoyed creating this little recipe but let me know what you thought in the comments below.
Seriously if you wanna a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

Ever since I started vaping I've been fascinated by TFA Pistachio, the smell is just amazing, but I have never been able to find a recipie with a satisfying strong pistachio flavor. I have done countless bad attempts trying to nail down the Pistachio/RY4 combo (made famous by Charlie Noble), but almost all of them have ended up in the sink.
I did however have an epiphany when the legendary @shyndo released his recipie for his "Karl Custard" oneshot, where he not only uses TFA Pistachio at 8%, but also wrote an incdedibly helpful note on how to tackle the sharpness that such a high percentage of that flavour brings.
As I did not possess the flavors he is using, I started making my own version with 8% TFA Pistachio as a starting point, and with his notes as help. I also got some very encouraging words from him on the DYI_eJuice discord: "dont be afraid to push shit just because some pretentious bastard tells you he gets "off notes"".
So here I am. PUSHING!
TFA Pistachio: I set out to copy Shyndo by using this at 8%, to really bring that powerful yet creamy pistachio note.
TFA RY4 Double: At 4% it is just enough to force mute the heavy pistachio note to a perfect level, while bringing that lovely caramel tobacco note to the mix.
DFS Holy Vanilla: Creamy eggy wonderful vanilla. At 2% this also helps take the edge off the pistachio, but mainly blends it together to a lovely vanilla pistachio cream that you just want to eat out of a spoon.
FLV Milk & Honey: I would say this is optional, but I think it brings a complexity to the whole mix with that dark sweetness that works very well with the pistachio and tobacco notes.
Again I just have to thank @shyndo, who not only came up with this amazing recipie (Karl Custard), but also went out of his way to answer my questions and gave me invaluable advice on how to develop recipies. So please make sure to check out his Karl Kustard
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.
