I wanted to see if I could build a carrot cake without a “Carrot Cake” flavor, using FLV Carrot as a component. I messed with a few different cake/cheesecake/frosting combos and settled on this one.
There’s not much point to describing every ingredient from irl carrot cake, it’s all fairly obvious. A few flavors deserve special mention, however. FLV Carrot does favorable texture things here, making the cake stand out, and was part of my personal puzzle anyway. Then I used some Liquid Amber to tweak the carrot and fruits into being softer, closer to cooked. Butter Pecan is huge, contributing to the texture of the cake and providing the pecan along with a rich, dark sweetness. The fruits, Fuji and G.Pineapple, brighten it up and give some moisture and subtle tang without becoming the main focus, just like irl.
Overall I’m very pleased with how this came out and I feel I’ve solved my puzzle.
A 2 week steep is in order for this one. The cake needs a while to really come together with everything.
CAP Golden pineapple is a really good pineapple juice. It pairs well with the fleshy natural FA Mango Indian Spec and the crispy bright FA White Peach.
Sweeten to taste.

If you like bubblegum flavors then look no further than MB American Bubblegum. It is a perfect pink bubblegum flavor. I combine it with FA marshmallow to add a little sticky sweetness that I think it needs for authenticity.
CAP Sweet Guava is a huge punch of tropical fruit flavor that fits surprisingly well in to a bubblegum recipe. I’ve paired it with Golden Pineapple and Banana Cream (DX) here to really give this recipe the full island treatment.
Bubblegum needs a good amount of sweetener too it. I suggest adding more sweetener than you normally would.

Firstly a little background on the inspiration for creating this recipe. This recipe is based on an Australian favourite confectionery that is simply delicious yet extremely complex to replicate in an eLiquid.
The name of the product called "Resdskins" apparently makes some people in the American culture scream "That is just wrong!".
I won't lie, I don't understand what offense this causes nor have any knowledge of the sensitivities of native America. So as to not cause an unintended offense, I have called this recipe "Red Faces".
I have called it that because maybe I should know more about the subject, but hey I'm never to old to learn right?
In saying that let's get on with the recipe that has been the most challenging yet in my 4 years plus of mixing.
After 15 variations over the last few weeks and many many more over the years this is the nearest to justice I can do for this flavour profile.
The "Allens Redskins" is a legendary confectionery in Australia that is like a raspberry hard chew candy that is sweet, tart and little sour, slightly fruity but uniquely delicious.
I have to hand it to the genius who first created this profile because cracking the code of flavour on this is near impossible.
You have to concentrate REALLY hard because there are artificial fruity back notes like apple and pineapple. The Raspberry is extremely distinctive and that was very difficult to nail down.
Hence I had to create a 321 confectionery Raspberry trilogy to get even close. Accenting that trilogy was a balancing act of attempting to replicate the same flavour and mouthfeel and has an 11/10 difficulty ratio.
The slight creaminess and smoothness is also difficult to pin down.
The lingering of the slightly sour & tart notes you get in the real thing is also amazingly difficult to get right without muting the overall base of flavour.
The flavour saturation of the real thing is insane!
To emulate that level of flavour saturation in a vape eLiquid would mean using at least using 30 plus percent of flavourings, while at the same time it would make it sickly sweet after a few short puffs.
So to make this an enjoyable vape I have taken the middle ground of enjoyable vape Vs over sweetened and exaggerated flavour.
This is the closest I can do to entertain this near impossible flavour.
It's delicious, but it comes with some pre-conditions to experience what I have done here:
It needs to be vaped on a quality RDA with airflow semi restricted at least 75w-90w on a 0.10-0.15 ohm dual coils or similar set up with wattage/resistance allowed for on a single coil RDA.
(You can vape it on another device and Wattage but it won't necessarily be the same - let me know what you tried it on)
You need to vape it through for at least 5-10 puffs to get the lingering notes that deliver all the nuances.
I have set out, as I do with all my recipes to make this an enjoyable vape experience. Converting a real life confectionery into an eLiquid is difficult and this was seriously the most difficult recipe I have created ever!
I could either write a 16 page PDF on flavour notes & on how I came to use all the flavours here the way I did ect., but let's keep this simple & enjoyable.
I think this is a very good rendition of this much sought after recipe profile, but let me know what you think. :)
If this was a commercial or custom recipe I would charge heaps for it!
I fully own this recipe and if I learn that you have used this for commercial use I will hunt you down because I DO NOT give permission for use of this recipe other than for private personal use only.
I strongly urge you all to please advocate so that not just you and me can enjoy a smoke free future but also those who haven't experienced what we have yet!
You aren't going to steal my RED FACES Mr Hunt!
Not on my watch Mr. Hunt!
Australia is currently in a massive battle to save our industry from planned legislation that would effectively make nicotine almost inaccessible.
We only have til January 1, 2021 leaving us only a few months to try and turn this around.
Please stay informed and keep up to date with all the calls to action via the DIY Downunder FB page.
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

A creamy swirl mix,combining pineapple,papaya,mango and peaches.Based on an actual yogurt swirl with fruits i had tasted.
I find this mix quite balanced,nothing is overpowering and i believe that even people who are not that into fruit recipes,will enjoy it
Las Almas Libres siempre hablan el mismo idioma..
So thought I'd start a v2 of the first recipe I ever shared online.
I kept cap juicy peach as it gives us a nice bright rounded peach flavour.
Cap yellow peach used to boost juicy peach & its works amazingly as a bridge between the peach n pineapple.
WF pineapple Candy gives us a nice bright pineapple note.
Cap golden pineapple is here to just help fill out the pineapple.
No sweetener needed as majority of the flavours in this have a nice natural sweetness to them.
If you're an unlucky one who gets harshness from peach n pineapple I'd recommend leaving it to steep for a few days.
It's getting hot out there. On day 13 of work straight. Bubba needs something to wet the whistle, and I need a vacation. Let's meet in the middle and make something nice and tropical to take our minds away from the chaos and to sunny shores. Very pineappley recipe
VT - Sugarloaf : If you haven't made yourself aquainted with this flavoring, you're missing out on something big. This pineapple is outta this world. Shame the Aussies are getting fucked over right now with vaping, because God damn they make some da'gum good flavors. At 2.5% this will make it the star of the show as VT flavors are quite potent and INW pineapple will back it up plenty
INW Pineapple - I love this flavor. I bounce back to it time and time again whenever I need a reliable pineapple for a fruit mix.
FLV - Cream : Been favoring this cream a bit lately as it carries a nice dairy note to it which really gives it an authentic cream feel. Brings up the middle body of the flavor quite a bit and takes some bite off the pineapple and hides any offnotes
Fresh summertime soda for y'alls.
This one is long overdue, the legend @ID10-T requested this... months and months ago. Finally I got my shit together and finished it, and I think it turned out pretty darn good.
FLV Citrus Soda: I wanted to see if this could be used in another scenario than the usual lemon/lime soda base, and it seems it could. Adding the other bitter and tangy grapefruit flavors on top of it definitley bends it in that direction, while still getting the "fizz" from the citrus soda.
VT Grapefruit: Honestly I can't understand why this flavor isn't used more. After having tried most grapefruit flavors out there, this is probably my favourite one. It's got quite a citrus punch to it, almost a fizzy feel, which I like a lot and it complements citrus soda perfectly. It also has the right admount of bitterness that you expect from a grapefruit.
INW Grapefruit: Has a bit of sweetness in it, something that VT's is lacking, although they are very similar and together they make for a well rounded bitter grapefruit flavor. I picked these two flavors because they are relatively bitter and "citrusy", as I want it to be a contrast to the sweet pineapples.
INW Pineapple: Very fresh and juicy pineapple, almost like a pineapple juice. It's pretty weak in flavor though, hence the high percentage used.
CAP Golden Pineapple: Together with INW it makes for a well rounded pineapple flavor. Also very sugary sweet, and I feel like it adds some body to it, which INW is lacking.
WS-23: I haven't included the coolant in the recipe, but this one is extremely coolant compatible. I'd go for 0.5%, but I know everyone has their own preference depending on recent usage.
