Flavor Profile: custard dessert vanilla
Used in 7463 recipes at an average of 2.984%.
This mix was adapted from Adam Biondo's "My vanilla custard" submitted in the first DIY or DIE comp and was a final 3 contender. I don't know how to link the recipe, but definitely check his out. I didn't have to do too much to it so he definitely gets the credit. I see a lot of people asking for custard recipes so I wanted to share this. His mix was what turned me onto this profile. It just needed some changes to better fit what I wanted.
If you don't have the Cream Charlotte you can just leave it out, it's good either way. I like it because it helps push that dense bakery note and has a rich quality I haven't found in another flavoring, it's one of a kind...and no doubt loaded with DA/AP.
I vape this mix more than anything else and I'm constantly tweaking it is why I never released it. The CAP graham cracker with the butter pecan adds perfect dimension to this and can't be subbed. The original uses TPA brown sugar at .75% but I prefer that dark note that this needs from FLV Milk & Honey...brown sugar can be obtrusive. Don't be afraid to play with this, or any recipe you like. That's why we DIY, to get exactly what we want. If you love custards and bakeries as much as me, I suggest you get cream Charlotte. Mix this up my custard addicts...it's seriously amazing!
The FW yellow cake can be subbed for JF if you don't want to use it.
As with all heavy mixes, they get better with time. I actually like this a lot at one week, but if you can push it 2+ weeks you'll love it even more.
Me and #folkart decided to do some pies. For this journey was a difficult one. With my vaping style I need something to be a adv for me to release a recipe. With that said this was the closest I could get to a authentic plain pumpkin pie with out bombarding it with a vbic or some sort of vanilla ect..... I didn't want to mask nothing. I wanted a traditional buttery crust so the pairing of caps sugar cookie and inw biscuit play this role in making up the crust. Now the pumpkin I didn't want to go the same route as folk in using HS pumpkin. So my option were limited. Trying a bunch of different combos from holiday spice, flv egg nog ect.... they just wasn't hitting my palate the right way something was missing. The choice of RF pumpkin pie was a difficult decision. It's a tough one to work with imo. Using at 2% with caps pumpkin spice at .75% to help support the lacking spice and to help mute some of the off notes. Lastly the the lacking body of the filling is where I need a milky or some sort of condensed milk. This is where the Vienna cream, cream fresh and sweetner play there role. The addition of custard is to thickin up the mix. Hopefully you guys enjoy it was a tough one for me.

Just a delicious Fall recipe fo yo ass... Autumn/Winter is my all time favorite time of year. It's the time to start putting away all the fruity, light flavors and once again start breaking out the heavy custards, creams and bakeries (my specialty). So, to start it off I decided to share this little number. A tasty almond custard RY4. Very simple recipe and a pretty basic profile. Nonetheless, it's freakin' scrumptious and perfect for that Fall vaping. Throw a hoodie on and walk the leaf invested streets. Give this baby some time, the custard needs it as does the tobacco. 10 days and you're golden Pony Boy..
FLV Milk & Honey and CAP Graham Cracker really bump up the almond custard flavor here. The graham even brings a bit of cinnamon without even having cinnamon, I love it. But anyways, give it a shot, I promise you won't be disappointed.
Pastéis de Nata AKA Portuguese Custard Tarts. [Revisited]
A few months ago I shared a new recipe I'd been developing for a while, a Portuguese Custard Tart. Having now received a few concentrates from Wonder Flavors, I decided to give this another crack.
This new revised recipe is a lot more with what I wanted, on the draw you get a face-full of rich custard; on the exhale you are met with a nice flaky, golden, buttery pastry that lingers on the tongue.
I have included updated notes below.
TPA PIE CRUST / CAP FUNNEL CAKE / WF BUTTER TART / WF CREPE / INW BISCUIT
This is the base for the butter pastry cup. The first batch of the new revisited recipe omitted the Funnel Cake, without it I found the pastry cup tasted raw and underdeveloped, The funnel cake adds a cooked and somewhat caramelized note to the pastry. The WF Crepe give the pastry dough more weight, it adds a nice denseness without distracting from the flaky pastry you get from WF Butter Tart.
CAP VAN CUSTARD/ FLV RICH CINNAMON / FLV COOKIE DOUGH
This is obviously the custard filling, the vanilla custard and cookie dough create a nice dense custard with caramel notes, having the vanilla custard at such a high percentage means the eggy notes are pretty obvious and up there which is what I wanted, however adds a lot to the steep time. In the original recipe I used CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl to add a bit of a spicy note, this is now done with FLV Rich Cinnamon, which adds more authenticity to the profile and doesn't bog it down with too much of a bready note.
TPA BROWN SUGAR / TPA TOASTED MARSHMALLOW
This works with the cookie dough and toasted marshmallow to create a caramelized and 'burnt sugar' taste to the custard, like it's fresh out of the oven. The toasted marshmallow was also added to fluff everything out and provide the nice mouth feel you get from the recipe.
Give this bad boy at least a 10 day steep to let the custard really come together.
As always, constructive criticism is always welcome.

Straightforward S&C recipe without any twists..but it's pretty delicious if you're into this profile. The combination of INW shisha/FA red touch/JF sweet strawberry I got from ID10-T on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/DIY_eJuice/comments/6xqm0p/single_flavor_profile_recipes/dmifghc/ and it works wonderfully IMO.
Inspired, obviously by NotCharlesManson, with slight changes. This one has been a big hit with the friends around me. Thought I'd share it.
Took out the FW Yellow Cake, changed up the strawberries and a couple other things.
The SC Forest Strawberry is actually RF Strawberry (got it from nicotine river so maybe that's the original name, maybe not but ATF didn't have the RF Strawberry choice)
In Glendale, CA there is a Cuban Bakery called Porto’s. They serve literally hundreds of different baked goods but among them is a favorite of my Fiancé and I is their fruit tart. The crust isn’t your traditional pie crust—it’s more like cake. The cream tastes rich like custard but isn’t too sweet. On top they put blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, kiwi, and dragon fruit. They top the whole thing with a very light apricot glaze. It’s amazing.
I used FA Kiwi as it was more of a real Kiwi flavor as opposed to a booster. At 1% it is present without being overbearing.
CAP Dragon Fruit was a bit different from my normal use of TFA Dragon Fruit but once again I’m looking for candied pieces of fruit and not flavor boosters so this worked well at a strangely specific .8%
FA Forest Fruit is just wonderful and covers the whole range of berries I was looking for. FA Fuji Apple complements all the fruits and brightens them up.
For the crust I used a mixture of TFA Pie Crust which is what you would normally expect from a fruit tart and mixed with the classic FW Yellow Cake. It represents the unique crust of Porto’s fruit tart perfectly.
And that cream--- not just any cream would do. I’ve fallen in love with OOO Cream (Milky Undertones) because it can be used in just about any recipe that needs a cream note without added vanilla tones or sweetness. I took this as high as one should possibly use it and it works great. Combined with everyone’s favorite VC, CAP Vanilla Custard v1, this made the cream rich but not too sweet just like the real deal.
Finally to top it all off, a very light usage of FA Apricot for the glaze. Honestly I think I underused this one. Feel free to bump it up because I think it gets lost in the mix. Next revision will probably use more.
Best after two weeks. This one needs to steep a little.
