This is a bare bones attempt at creating a decadent creme brulee spritzed with fresh squeezed orange and garnished with orange slices. Your palate will crave the actual dessert when you get notes of rich custard, burnt sugar/caramel, and a spritz of orange.
INW Creme Brulee: This ingredient is quite magical. You get a hint of vanilla, a rich custard taste that is sweet, but not overly sweet while also getting this amazing burnt sugar/caramel on top. Typically, I'd keep this ingredient in the 1-2% range in a custard recipe to create some complexity, richness, and to add to the overall custard vibe. It definitely plays well with custards since creme brulee is essentially a custard itself. I wanted this flavor to shine through the CAP Vanilla Custard to distinguish itself from a basic custard so I used it at 3%. Creme Brulee is one of those ingredients that grows on you and keeps you coming back for more due to its complexity and the fact that you can get the sweet custard, rich egginess, and burnt sugar tastes at different levels throughout the vape.
CAP Vanilla Custard V1: This bad boy bullies me into adding it in almost all my recipes for damn good reasons. It's thick, has a great vanilla, and can mesh with nearly anything as long as you know how to use it. At 3.5% I use it as more than just an ingredient to give body to a recipe. It's here to to carry INW Creme Brulee to victory on its highly praised foundation. I needed a bit more of a custard base to complete the creme brulee vibe.
FW Blood Orange: Now, this is the difficult part of the recipe. However, taking a big risk can lead to a great reward. On the other hand, the risk you take can ultimately lead to failure. I needed an orange to take this recipe from "meh just another custard" to "damn this is an original idea that can be built upon and taken to new levels". I wanted the orange to be present, but not to take over the entire profile. This ingredient is extremely difficult to fine tune and dances on the line of taking over and being an accent to others. My selection of FW Blood Orange at 2% adds just enough orange to freshen this recipe up and take it to another level. This flavor is almost a quintessential representation of an actual orange in vape form. It has that sweet, fresh, and juiciness that one would expect from an orange along with this ever so slight rind taste. To me, 2% of this flavor in my recipe portrays what you would get if you blended in the juices of a fresh squeezed orange along with the custard ingredients used in creme brulee. The slight rind taste really reminded me of a dessert garnished with orange slices.
This is my take on a commercial strawberry milk nothing too sophisticated or complex. Sweet enough but not overly sweet, it can also be mixed without any sweetner simply up the FA meringue to around 0.60. The flavor percentage is a little higher than my usual recipes, but intentionally so as my goal was mimicking a mainstream juice. A few quick flavor notes-Vanilla Custard: It's 2am and the strawberries are lonely and looking for something to cling too. CAP VC at 1.5% fits the bill perfectly without turning it into a custard vape. Bavarian Cream and sweet cream tag team to boost the dairy component along with a little marshmallow. Fa Caramel/Fa torrone- These two are bit players in this recipe making cameo appearances only. I like my caramel on the sharp side and FA cuts like a knife, Torrone provides a mysterious nutty goodness and provides a oohey gooey texture to any recipe. Strawberry Sweet- This provides that over the top artificial strawberry we all know and love but fades over time, this is where strawberry ripe steps in and helps boost the flavor slightly. FA Meringue- this simply adds a little sweetness to the mix along with CAP super sweet...enjoy.
Based off of Kreeds Kustard and inspired by The Plume Rooms Banana Mint Milkshake.
I've used both LA and TFA banana cream in this recipe and feel like TFA banana cream fades too much, whereas, LA's Banana Cream holds up a little better over time. I added INW Banana to help out the banana profile a bit and I feel for the real banana heads out there that both banana cream and INW banana can be upped .5%
The Creme De Menthe to me is perfect, it's not overpowering mint, but it's there. It makes this recipe cool and refreshing. If you want a stronger mint experience you can add 1% more of Creme De Menthe or menthol of your choice.
Inspired by my hungry ass one night, when I was eating some crunch-berries, had nothing but milk left..and half of one of those entermanns cinnamon donuts. Figured what the hell. This was born shortly after. I'm not a big cereal fan for vapes, the custard& sweet cream really cut back the crunch berry and blends it nicely with the brown sugar into that last few spoonfuls of milk. The Rich cinnamon and zepolla add that donut type taste to it. It's been in rotation for a few weeks now.
Also add 3 drops per 30ml of TFA kettle corn to round out the crunch berry cereal milk taste
Homemade Vanilla Almonds Cheesecake. This is a recipe that I've been working on for a long time, it started of as an attempt to clone a juice called white lady for a friend but it kind of steered off into it's own direction and now my friend prefers this to the original. Although the Almond is quite high % it is mellowed out nicely with the creams. Perfect with a cup of good coffee.
