Used in 1094 recipes at an average of 2.107%.
[Update 7/15/2019] Added 0.5% FW Sweetener (or the sweetener of your choice at the comparable percentages). I found that as the original recipe aged it got harsher, and the sweetener seems to stabilize that a bit - I'm still testing)
Here is my take on one of my favorites the Black Forest Cake. If you are a lover of cherries and chocolate cake and have had a Black Forest Cake I'm sure you know what I mean. Unfortunately chocolate and cherry flavorings are difficult to mix with. Regardless this is my attempt at replicating this delicious cake.
The chocolate cake is a combination of JF Yellow Cake, HS Australian Chocolate, LB Lava Cake, and FLV Chocolate Deutsch. I tried to strike a balance between the different chocolate flavorings to minimize the off notes and accentuate the good notes - regardless chocolate flavors are very polarizing in the vape community and I'm sure to some it will not be agreeable to their senses.
To me INW Cherries, at low percentages, is fairly authentic with minimal cough syrup notes, but at those low percentages it was not enough to overcome the cake flavor. I decided to add INW Marzipan which increased the Cherry flavoring adding a sugary depth to the Cherry note. One thing I want to try is to get my hands on TFA Cherry Extract to see how that plays, but I had a difficult time finding it so I went with what I had.
Lastly is the heavy whipped cream which I used CAP Vanilla Custard and TFA Whipped Cream to emulate. The Vanilla Custard adds a richness to the cream note as well counteracts the dryness of the chocolate flavors. It was kept low to not elevate the Vanilla note as well as to minimize the steep time of the recipe. I added TFA Whipped Cream to further increase the creamy quality and volume to the vape. I tried adding it at higher percentages, but I found it wanted to mute some of the other flavors as it steeped.
For me the vape is a creamy chocolate initial exhale with the chocolate and cherry notes lingering on the palate with a slight tartness. Is it perfect? - no - but it is still quite good. For the most part I vape this in a single coil RTA like a KayFun V5 or the Coppervape Skyline clone with a 0.3 ohm Clapton coil running around 36-38 watts. I have vaped this in RDAs with mixed results so you have been warned. It seems that the flavorings are best delivered at a medium vape temperature. Since I mainly vape on single coil restricted airflow RTAs this recipe scratches my itch for this flavor profile.
For a cake donut base I wanted something a little different. Wasn't a fan of straight zeppola or the usual cap\tpa glazed donut concentrates on their own. Also the latter force a glaze on you. This works very well, stands up to a longer steep & lots of different flavor combos. Oh, I get zero play-doh from this which is a bonus.
Edit 7.12.18 This recipe holds up very well in a stock coil sub ohm tank. Even mesh(lose some texture but no mistaking it for anything but a donut).😀
Enjoy on it's own or add whatever floats your boat.
Donut base: zep for the fried dough note, enough for a taste & to give our outside to fill with the cake mixture.
yellow cake & cake batter: I want this to be a nice full flavor. 3% for that nice cake taste & texture. 1% Cap cb to help smooth the mix out & drive home that this is a cake donut. This flavor holds it's own & can really help fill out a cake mix in a heavier way. (If you really wanted\can't get jf I suppose you could sub fw cancer cake)
A dash of sweetener ( I used 1 drop\15ml of cap ss) seems needed for this on it's own I feel. But unless you want that plain donut that nobody else touches it helps. Leaving it out because someone always eats that donut. Not sure if desperation or enjoyment 🤔
To make this a glazed donut: add 1%ish la cci, or flv frosting or tpa glazed donut.
Powdered sugar donut: add .5- 1% ooo powdered sugar or, if you get powdered sugar taste from it: .5%ish tpa glazed donut. Even a little fa meringue would probably do the trick.
Blueberry donut: 2% tpa blueberry extra & 4% fw blueberry with .5% lemon Sicily (just a personal fave combination if not using the trifecta)
Will post my favorite version as soon as I'm done tweaking it.
There's really a ton you can build with this. Best after a week because of the cake batter. I usually add fruits afterwards with this one depending what I'm in the mood for. Have suggested ratio at 80\20 so you can actually weigh it out as pre-mix when adding flavors to it : )
Enjoy & Happy Mixing! Feedback is always appreciated! 😎💨💨
FA Corn is sweet creamed corn. The base of our corn bread. It's perfect for this recipe. Alfred convinced me to sub this in instead of HC Corn and it's a million times better. Thanks Alfred.
FLV Popcorn brings some more corn, some insane texture, and also a dark sweetness that resonates through the vape. Its kind of like caramel corn, and it works well.
CAP Cereal 27 brings even more corn. Also it really helps in the bread/texture department. With these 3 working together we get a very believable "corn" flavor, and they all work to beef up and sell the bread.
JF Yellow Cake finished the cornbread. It's sweet and thick and brings everything together nicely. Final touch, and also brings a tad of vanilla.
FA Custard Premium + INW Shisha Vanilla come together as our pudding. If you don't have Custard Premium, get it. It's basically the bomb. It's thick, eggy and rich. It's Vanilla Custard. Very, very delicious. Shisha Vanilla is a nice vanilla cream that thickens up our pudding. It's bright and forgiving. But let's be serious, this is a custard disguised as a pudding.

We stole the candy from Candy Mountain and stuffed it into a cupcake. We made sure to bury red team in the process. Since we're team BLUE... blueberry!
JF Yellow Cake makes the base for the cupcake. VT Yogurt Drink makes the impromptu frosting loaded with delicious Blueberry from FA Bilberry and FW Blueberry. VT Fizzy Sherbet brings the pop rocks! All that backed by some lemon to brighten the Blueberry from VT Yogurt Drink and VT Fizzy Sherbet.

Jewish Apple Cake
A dense/moist brown sugar cinnamon apple cake.
Even though I came from a Christian family, this cake is something my mother made at least once a month. Sadly, since my youth I haven't found a recipe that comes close to matching her expertise with this marvelous dessert. I was fortunate enough to not only have a mother who was a great cook, but also an expert baker!
For my base, RF COFFEE CAKE was the obvious choice. This flavoring is not the most potent(probably because it is VG-based), so a high percentage was needed. Within this flavoring, you will taste cooked apple, cinnamon, and brown sugar "crumblies". It still needs help though, to become full flavored.
FLV APPLE FILLING & FLV APPLE filled out the cooked fruit/cinnamon layer quite nicely here. I tried FLV Apple Pop before this combination but found it didn't quite do what I wanted it to do. This doesn't mean it would not be a perfect additive in any other baked apple dessert. I just found that it didn't quite work here as I wanted.
JF YELLOW CAKE & JF BISCUIT complete the cakey base of this recipe. This is a very good combination at these percentages.
If you want, you can crank up the CAP SUPER SWEET to about 0.5%. I can't stand this flavoring too high...which is why I kept it relatively low here. Too much sucralose smothers little nuances afaic.
Of course, this is a potent enough mix to be vaped fresh. But I prefer it from 5-7 days plus.
STEEP: 5-7 DAYS

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.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl v2 can be used as a sub for the v1, both taste real good in this recipie. If you don't have JF Yellow Cake, FW can be used instead, even tho I wouldn't recommend using that flavor at all.
To get the real "fika" experience, this is best vaped together with a cup of coffee.
Octarine, also known as the Colour of Magic or the King Colour. It is visible only to wizards and cats. It is generally described as a sort of greenish purple yellow colour. The only time non-wizards can see it is when they close their eyes; the bursts of color are octarine.
This recipie was inspired by @foment_life, who wisely said "I do love the idea of just toying around with a bunch of things that are just individually tasty and seeing what shakes out in the end."
Well, this is the result of that.
