I recently had a piece of lemon and coconut cream cake and enjoyed it so much that I decided to try and capture the experience in vape form.

Lemon needs to be at the forefront of the profile as it is the dominant flavour, so I used relatively high percentages of FA lemon Sicily and VT sour lemon.

I then added some CAP lemon meringue pie as a bridge to the 'cake' part of the profile, rounding it out with a dash of FW yellow cake, INW yes we cheesecake and some LB vanilla ice cream.

The VIC bridges nicely; it adds vanilla flavour to the cake and sets up the coconut cream together with some WF coconut custard, which leaves FW sweet coconut to add a more authentic coconut flavour - this is the sprinkle of coconut on top of the cake.

I found I had to be sparing with the coconut as it has a strange muting effect on the lemon and can easily overwhelm it if too much is used.

In order for the cream to come through properly, this recipe needs a 7 day steep, but it is actually pretty nice straight away.

In terms of subs, you could swap out the VIC for a cream/cream combo of your choice (may try sweet cream and cream fresh), and you could also swap out the cake for a pastry to turn the cake into a pie.

Please mix, enjoy and let me know what you think!

Boysenberry Lemonde by @Outofhand is really good but i wanted to make it a bit more frutier and comercial sweet so added 1% CAP Sweet Currant, and Changed TPA Sweetener For CAP Super Sweet.
Im an icy vapes freak so ..
2% Ws-23 is not a big deal for me.

With this changes i think its like Boysenberry Lemonade on Steroids!

Lemon meringue pie with mascarpone cheese layer.

I wanted to post a lemon meringue recipe but at the same time to make it a bit different from the other ones published.

CAP Lemon Meringue pie is my go to, so it was an obvious choice.

FA lemon Sicily for me is the best lemon by far although it fades.
1% is all you need to support CAPs Lemon Meringue Pie.

The marscarpone Layer is made with HS Italian Cream wich is an awsame cream, its rich, thick and buttery but gets a bit cheesy wich here fits wonderfully.
And TPA Cheesecake with Graham Crust that adds more cheesecake flavour and a graham base for our crust.

CAP Golden Butter 0.5% just because its a key ingredient in pies and makes the graham base a bit more pie like.

And Finally FA Meringue one of my favourite flavourings and how can you not add Meringue to a Lemon Meringue pie?!

A creamy , lemony Vanilla Ice Cream.
Sweeten it, how you like it!

I wanted to try and see how close I could get to the an actually curd rather then a pudding or custard and I think this is pretty darn close to that sweet and sticky tart lemon curd. I am happy with this as it is pretty much what I had in mind.
This was mixed for the PRIDE fundraiser, for the Ali Forney center for LBGTQ homeless youth on Fresh03 channel https://youtu.be/5Xa1eZqfwK8

The Lemon Square is pretty much full on lemon curd with alight bakery but needs some support to help it fill out - so this is the base for this mix
Custard by FA is the perfect custard to bring out some of the egg notes with a light lemon note

Fe lemon, and lemon Sicily bring a solid realistic lemon and a nice bit of lemon zest. VT sour lemon helps to carry that lemon to the finish with a bit of a tart note
Orange marmalade helps to add some depth to the lemon with some sweetness and sticky mouth feel
27 bears supports the sticky mouth feel that you get from a curd ( thanks @mlNikon I think it worked well )

NOTE: I added .5% of cap sweetner to help bring out the top notes of the lemon , and it really helps to give that super sweet versus a tart contrast , you can also bump that VT sour lemon to 3% of you really want more of a tart note. That tart note will dissipate some so this is best vaped with in the week of mixing , if you like a sour mix/

Yes, it's another LMP, but this has taken me months to perfect, and is one of my favorites. So much so, that I seldom allow it to make it to a full steep. I wanted a LMP with a traditional crust, not a graham crust, and fresh lemon flavors that lasted, hence the name. I finally collected all the right flavors, and this pie is complete. Lemon lovers like me can appreciate it.

If you would like to use your own sweeteners, or go without, the NN Monk Fruit Extract and NN Stevia can be removed. The ratio I use of these two is perfect, pops the flavors, and saves my lungs and coils from damage, while providing serious sweetness. Less is best here, and I have no off notes. Look on https://nudenicotine.com/search?type=article%2Cpage%2Cproduct&q=Sweeteners* for complete information. They ship internationally.

So my base to build upon was the well known CAP Lemon Meringue Pie, it just needs help imo.
FA Apple Pie has an excellent pie crust flavor, and the apple is faint, easily buried by the lemon filling, and ends up just adding a light sweet fill. The crust was finished with JF Biscuit for texture.
The lemon filling was the biggest challenge for me, I wanted a full lemon flavor, without fading issues, and that wouldn't make me choke while vaping it. FE Lemon gave the lemon it's legs to last, fresh and realistic. CAP Italian Lemon Sicily and FA Lemon Sicily added the full complete lemon profile I was looking for. VT Pudding Base filled a double role here, both contributing to the full texture of the filling, without adding unwanted flavors, and the bready exhale just helped the crust even more.
FA Meringue was the best choice for me for flavor and texture enhancement of meringue offered up by the CAP Lemon Meringue Pie base.

Yes, it's complex, but it's good and not muddied. I have tried many different 'simplified versions' and they missed the mark for me. This recipe was developed for my own pleasure to vape, and there are plenty of LVP recipes out there to choose from. To thine own tongue be true!

A creamy, tangy and sweet lemon pudding.

Lemon Sicily and Juicy Lemon make a great lemon flavour in combination, with the tang from lemon sicily being smoothed out by the juicy lemon and creating a beautiful dessert lemon flavour.

I used Lemon Meringue Pie as a bridge into the creams (which form the pudding layer of the recipe), as it has a hint of creaminess and Meringue to add sweetness.

For the creams, I wanted something light, flavourful and sweet, but that wasn't overpowering and would support the lemon. This is a combination I have used to good effect in other recipes, and it seems to work well here.

VT pudding base rounds the whole thing off, adding a lovely mouth feel and roundness to the vape.

This needs a couple of weeks to steep and get to the sweet spot, but I have been trying it since I made it and it is really good so far.

I would appreciate any feedback! 😊

Edit: a friend has told me that this is extremely similar to/a clone of Milkman's Pudding. I haven't tried it, but if you have and you liked it, give this a go.

MY ADV I fist was using just the Fa Lemon Sicily and FE Lemon. Then I saw Kindground Lemonade base he used the VT Lemon sour it helps it a lot.I did lower it a bit. Sometimes I use 2% juicy peach found 3% is better. Seems to be best steep 60mls at day 5-6. For the JF Honey Peach to blend in.

Looking for a nice sweet pod recipe? Look no further folks, we've got a tasty one here!

This recipe starts with the fantastic 3-2-1 strawberry trinity, follows it up with a delicious combo of pur/fa watermelons and finishes it off with some jelly candy.

This has become the favorites of several of my close friends and its the only thing my girlfriend vapes. It would be a shame not to share it!

Sweeten as desired. If you enjoy menthol flavors start at about .6% ( I use a 50/50 mix of ecx ws-23 and ecx menthol solution, .3% each, with great results)
For pods I use a 50/50 vg/pg ratio and a healthy dose of nicotine. If you want to sub ohm this recipe, you can raise the ratio and reduce the flavoring some since it wont have to rise above all that nicotine.

I'm a huge fan of "Viserion" by @ID10-T, it's by far the juice I have vaped the most and always make sure to have 60ML ready to vape. So needless to say, I'm a sucker for the blueberry ice cream profile. I'm also a huge fan of @eyemakepizza 's vanilla ice cream trinity, it's just ice cream perfection. For this recipie I took his amazing ice cream base, adjusted it slightly to work with the blueberry combo I'm using here.

Notes:
VT Bilberry Ripe is my new favourite blueberry flavor, even though it's more of a blueberry syrup than the actual berry, it fits perfectly for an ice cream recipie.
JF Blueberry is another fantastic blueberry flavor that unfortunately has been overlooked. It is very similar to FA Bilberry in that sense that it brings that authentic blueberry tartness, but it's a lot sweeter, and works perfect in combination with VT Bilberry Ripe.
FLV Boysenberry is used very low here just to give the other blueberries a more well rounded yummy taste and to further enhance the syrupy flavor.
FA Lemon Sicily can and should be subbed for FE Lemon or INW Lemon Mix if you have. Just a touch of lemon here as a contrasting flavor to both make the blueberries pop and the vanilla taste even better.
LB Vanilla Ice Cream / TFA Vanilla Swirl / HS French Vanilla Ice Cream aka the "Ice Cream Trinity" by @eyemakepizza is slightly adjusted to make it work with the rest of the mix.
WS-23 works very well here to give it the real cold ice cream feel. If you're not used to WS-23 I'd suggest starting at 0.25 - 0.5%.

Extra notes:
JF Blueberry can NOT be subbed for any other blueberry. If you really want to mix this but don't have it, just leave it out and up FLV Boysenberry to 1%. It won't be the same blueberry flavor, but it won't be bad at least. I do highly suggest you grab JF Blueberry though, it's a fantastic flavor.

This recipe was revised 2019/06/26
TFA Vanilla Swirl upped to 3% (was 2.5%)
LB Vanilla Ice Cream lowered to 4% (was 6%)

I feelt that it became a bit too heavy both on the cream and berries after a bit of steeping. The changes makes it much more well rounded.
