This is an authentic baked bear claw recipe that a friend of mine requested. The final results are the product of being the noob mixer guest on the Fresh03 show, where I was properly schooled. It turned out to be a fantastic vape, and my friend Cathy, loves it. Thanks to Fresh03 and his crew for teaching me so much and making me laugh at the same time.
FLV Sweet Dough and FA Zeppola make for a great pastry base that steeps out faster then most, and the FLV Vanilla Pudding adds much needed moisture to this mix. The spiced almond paste center is made up of FLV Rich Cinnamon, FA Marzipan, and FLV Pastry Zest.
The TPA Acetyl Pyrazine brings out the almond notes and helps with the baked aspect of the bear claw. LA Cream Cheese Icing provides the frosting drizzle across the top of the bear claw.
I sweeten with natural sweeteners from Nude Nicotine: Monk Fruit Extract and Stevia. Of course, sub with whatever sweeteners you choose and leave those out, but some sweetness is needed for this mix imo.
Mixed at 70VG/30PG and tastes best after a 4 day steep.
Deep fried banana slices, butterscotch and graham cracker.
This recipe is inspired by one of my friends favourite eliquid which is Fryd Bananas.
I wanted to create one myself and not remixing the original but being close to the profile.
Deep Fried Banana Slices :
WF Deep Fried plantain is a semi cooked banana flavour with brown sugar and some spice but is a quite weak on the banana flavour and needs some more additions to be great.
But one thing i like is that after 2 weeks steep has some fried and bready tasting that is really accurate to the profile.
So to complete the Banana i added :
TPA Banana Cream as its my favourite and also adds a good amount of creamy banana sweetness.
And FA Banó to give more "freshness" to the banana mix as it is a greener kind of banana.
With this 3 we have our Sweet Banana Slices cooked in brown sugar. A bit raw a bit cooked, makes the banana closer to the real thing.
FW Butterscotch Ripple: is my go to as its creamy, easy to use.. was obvious for me to choose this one.
The original FRYED on its description says : " buttery cream" but i prefered to use CAP Golden Butter to create that Deep Fried Buttery Banana.
The spice on WF DFPlantain is a bit non descript so to make it better the profile called for FLV Rich Cinnamon which is awsame, sweet , warm, strong .. its perfect.
FW Graham Cracker: Bananas get better with graham cracker specially on the exhale, it just makes them better, and here has a double duty, making bananas better and suporting the fried, bready texture as well as giving a nice graham cracker after taste.
Yo can SNV it as its pretty tasty but its better when rich cinnamon calms down a bit after 3 days and waaay better after 10 days.
Really wanted a quick SnV desert tobacco. Connecticut Shade's chocolate/coffee notes lend well to blending with the chocolate mint of CdM, and they all work with cinnamon. Added some Australian Chocolate to make the chocolate the predominant non-tobacco flavor, and then the Red Burley and Native tobaccos to make it clear this is a tobacco vape.
Bonus for anyone who thinks they deciphered the acronym. And as always... use PEG or PDO if you're gonna mix at the suggested ratio, I don't need to end up on a Throat Offenders Registry because someone thought I meant they should vape that much PG.
I'm already addicted to apple-cinnamon profiles, and after trying oddDrop's Jacker I wanted to make one, but with strawberry milk.
\\Mixed At: 70vg\30pg
\\Steep Time: 5-7 Days
Back in my college days, my friends and I would drive around in the country, listen to Sublime, and do what most college kids do in that situation (cough cough). When we got back to the dorm, I would bust out my secret stash of Apple Jacks and get my strawberry milk out of the mini fridge. This is my best attempt thus far to recreate that moment.
The biggest challenge I had with this recipe? Getting the apple-cinnamon and strawberry to be distinguishable. A lot of batches I would be able to taste one or the other, but never both, and I think I finally cracked it.
Cereal Base: OddDrop was spot on with what CAP Apple Snacks provides, a wonderful dried apple and oat-grain flavor. The only big issue I had with Jacker is what is probably going to get me ostracized, I'm not a fan of CAP Cereal 27. I KNOW, it's crazy. I decided to still use it, but only at 1%, at 1% it still gives us a bit of that crunchy/corn note and still plays well off of the oat-grain notes from a slight increase in CAP Apple Snacks.
A lot of the recipes on here use FA Stark to help with the Apple notes, and they were absolutely right, it really helps the apple in this recipe, but again it was a little too high for me, I was almost getting a bit of a watery apple juice note at 1%. At 0.66% it helps round it out a bit more.
To get our cinnamon on with our apple, I went with the old classic FLV Rich Cinnamon. You only need 1 drop/30ml and it does the trick. I would wager that you could even drop the strawberry and keep the rest for a bangin Apple Jacks recipe on it's own. Also this gets a surprising boost from RF Strawberry Gelato (more on that later)
Milk Base: I want to give 100% credit to SteamOn's cereal milk base. It is spot on and is both tough enough against other flavors to it stand out, but malleable enough to bend it to my will. If you ever want to start working on a cereal w/milk recipe, SteamOn has got you covered. The only thing I did was round up meringue 0.05% just because I thought it looked weird.
Strawberry: TPA Strawberry Ripe is awesome, but is too "pink" for this profile if that makes sense. INW Shisha Strawberry was a front-runner but I always get this slightly earthy note from it that turns me off in certain recipes unless it's done right (like wh1skeyk1ng's Rhubarb Delight ). I decided to try a couple of new strawberries that I didn't have as much experience with. I really liked the notes I got from RF Strawberry Gelato SC from Tootall's Battered Berry, but in the never ending battle with tasting both apple-cinnamon AND strawberry in this mix it was too weak on it's own, and just increasing it caused the gelato notes to take over the recipe. So I included RF Strawberry SC to help both fruits in this profile. The best part? The slightly-granular note from RF Strawberry Gelato SC helps out our cereal base. It's one of those things where you're not sure why it works but it does.
This Cereal is Sweet: I think this is the first recipe in a while where I would say sweetener is required. I mean, look at the side of a box of Apple Jacks and you'll see why. 12 grams of sugar in 1 CUP, who the hell only eats 1 CUP of cereal for breakfast? Add some strawberry milk and you're on the sugar train to diabetes town. Anyway yes, CAP SS, even just a little like in this one, is needed at times. To really create that store-bought sugar bomb you took off the shelf this recipe needs it.
Epilogue: I swear the longer I write my notes on these the more passionate I get. I hope you like what I probably spent way too long on, and be sure to leave a review as well! I always enjoy hearing constructive criticism and any suggestions people might have. Lastly, be sure to try out the other guy's recipes I linked here, if it weren't for them I don't think I could have gotten this together.
Coming from a place with a burning desire to make something unique, delicious, warm and makes you feel comforted. This is a hybrid recipe created with a blend of flavours that I imagined would offer warmth and comfort. That is what this mix is about. Sure there is technique here, but what I would rather you the mixer do is mix this and with each vape of this, try and pick out how each flavour plays and how it melds. Pull it apart by single flavour testing each flavour. See how each flavour works with another at these percentages.
That is mixing, real DIY mixing IMO.
The only thing that will be burning besides your desire for more will be your battery power as you enjoy this vape full of richness and balanced flavours that don't really belong together,
but somehow they do.
This is Campfire!
IMO this is a very pleasant and enjoyable vape on a single coil RDA at 60W with a SST Alien single coil at 0.2 ohm
Steep Time 5 Days for best results.
I hope you enjoy this just as much as I enjoyed creating this little recipe, but let me know what you thought in the comments below.
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

Based on 007 Cola By Alfred Pudding if you haven't tried it do it! Best cola you can vape.
This recipe is a thing i wanted for a long time Jack & Coke.
Used 007 Cola base and added a touch of FLV Bourbon to get a bit of charred oak and bourbon sweetnes and the good old TPA Kentucky bourbon to add bourbon warmth and more bourbon sweet notes.
Increased ws-23 to fight a bit KB warmth and maintain the essence of 007 cola. ( 2% ws23 is my go to % so this is quite low for me but i think it fits better the profile)
an old fashioned bakery crumb cake , a thin layer of moist yellow cake with a thick layer of rich buttery crumbs. the pudding base , sugar cookie and rich cinnamon lend themselves well for the crumb , as do the yellow cake and cap v1 for the cake , and the butter rounds off the recipe. a 5 to 7 day steep , may tweak a bit , not sure.
***My only changes to this perfect recipe were the types of sweeteners used, and the addition of DIYFS Clear Black Cherry, along with a reduction in WS-23. I chose this cherry because it is easy to work with, and has the perfect sweet cherry taste.

Original commentary of the master below, Alfred Pudding:
For October's Mixers' Club prompt, I was tasked with revisiting my biggest failure of a recipe and making it work. When I first started mixing, I wanted to create a cola recipe without using any cola flavorings. From what I had gathered they were all pretty lackluster, and I wanted to solve a problem many people were facing. It was a tremendous error in judgement, and I wanted to abandon it completely. If Concrete River didn't make this eloquent challenge, and ID10-T didn't make his decision to conquer his fear, I wouldn't have accomplished a major goal and brought this to life.
Normally I would put a lot of development notes here, and explain why I made the decisions that ended up in the recipe, but I'm not going to do that with this one. I want you to mix it up if you're interested in an awesome cola recipe, and know that I put a lot of effort into it. Another part of the prompt was to explain what I'm doing differently now, which I think could benefit many people. The first major difference in my mixing was brought about by Jennifer Jarvis. I knew early on that she utilized smell quite a bit, but I didn't understand how important it was. I stopped making recipes with percentages and suggestions, and just started following my nose like Toucan Sam. I would try to elaborate, but I wouldn't do it justice. Just go find Jennifer Jarvis and she'll give you some amazing pointers.
Another major difference in my style is the application of vast amounts of information I have gathered. There are so many incredible resources on YouTube, Reddit, and Discord that have made my experience truly awesome. People that are willing to answer any question you can conjure, give suggestions on ways to make an idea work, and provide inspiration for creative new recipes. I'm very thankful for all of them, and I look forward to coming up with countless things for everyone to try.
Notes to come but this thing is killer! Enjoy and thank you Alfred !

This is it guys, the bakery cinnamon. Look no further. Use it like you would cinnamon in the culinary world.
It is a tad steep at $12.50/15ml, but it is well worth it. Not only is it the best bakery cinnamon available, it is super concentrated; you won't be using this one any higher than 0.5%. I've found this to add the perfect accent to a bakery as low as 0.15%, and makes for a great flavorful cinnamon kick at 0.3%. What I find particularly awesome about this flavoring its range. Keep in mind though, if you want to bring it way up for a spicy, red-hot cinnamon, you may want a different cinnamon since this one gets pretty dry for me over 0.75%, but the dryness does calm down after some steep time.
It is kind of hard to work with as is, so making a dilution of this one (10% FLV Rich Cinnamon:90% PG) may make it easier to handle.
