I really like layered vape recipes and I try to create at least 1 a month with this being the recipe for the my month.. This is my rendition of something I had seen when I first started to D.I.Y. and I have struggled with in the beginning and I think I have the right amount of everything for the correct tastes so what better then the best of 2 worlds.. Banana Nut Bread with Strawberry Cheesecake combined into one hell of a vape.. Slight coconut hint with the right cream and vanilla.
This is a play on Orange Fanta with subtle hints of Raspberry and Coconut to finish it off.. It is a super fruity and zero sweetener. The Cactus makes the vape super juicy with the slight hint of tart and sour to mess with your taste buds as you vape it. I used the Black Currant as a buffer to slightly enhance the Raspberry and it worked just right.. This is a nice SNV and it could be a daily vape.
A hopped apple cider pudding.
This started out as a riff on Mill's "Soursop Pudding." I loved that recipe. The pudding base was on point, and I dug how he used hops as an accent to soursop. I took the basic idea and ran with it.
FLV Vanilla Pudding is the base of the recipe, bringing a smooth texture and some body to the table. The FLV Coconut is in here mostly to accentuate the richness of that pudding base. The errant bits of coconut flavor actually work pretty well, but I'm mostly after the buttery richness of that flavor.
I really wanted an excuse to try to make apple and hops work together. For some reason, I had never tryed it out, but I really dig how the hops plays with the boozy notes of FLV Apple Cider and the Apple Pop is there to really punch in the apple profile.
The cinnamon was the final addition to temper some of the clash between the boozy notes of the cider and the rich pudding. Plus, the warm spice makes this feel even more comforting and like a vaguely macho dessert you'd get at some boutique hunter's lodge. Shoutout to LimeDrive for testing an earlier version of this via Mixer's Club and suggesting cinnamon. Turns out, it ties the whole thing together.

Screwed Exotica is an explosion of several fruits.
This is a good exercise to test the palette and reflect on how different flavors reside in your memory.
Seeing these are quite distinguishable here, it shouldn't be to difficult.

A delicious Chocolate Pandoro Cake with frosting
Having watched Noted: Ep. 24 - Cakes (see link below) I wanted to try my hand at some new cake recipes. In particular, using FA Pandoro to make a Chocolate Pandoro Cake, a Christmas dessert an Italian student had been telling me about. However, due to its inescapablely lemon cake flavour, FA Pandoro was dropped from the recipe and different flavours were used to achieve a Chocolate Pandoro Cake profile.
FLV Pound Cake/JF Yellow Cake - this makes up the cake portion of the recipe.
FA Joy/ Flv Cookie dough/ CAP Butter Cream: FA Joy lends the yeast notes you find in a Pandoro Cake and 0.5% is just enough not to get too overpowering. Strangely enough, It also happens to go beautifully with chocolate. FA Joy also helps separate the frosting from the cake so preventing it from being a just a creamy chocolate cake. FLV Cookie Dough is the chocolatey cake batter which softens and mellows the cake Cap Butter Cream provides the rich buttery notes you get in a Pandoro cake and enhances the frosting layer.
FLV Frosting/Cap Vanilla Whipped Cream: FLV Frosting was used despite the painful 2 week steep it requires. Cap Vanilla Whipped cream softens the frosting and smooths out the cake.
HS Australian Chocolate is a semii-darkish chocolate with cocoa notes and is enhanced by the sweeter FLV Milk chocolate. FLV Coconut was added to further complement the chocolate and accent the cake. Didn't want the Chocolate too rich or to be a top-note flavour, just wanted it to blend in and provide a more background note. FLV Milk chocolate can be quite potent so it was orginally added low at 0.15 % then upped to 0.45%.
A Chocolate Cake flavour could have been used to simplify things (LB Lava Cake is in the post) but mixing in chocolate flavours with a cake base is a good way to learn about both.
Overall, the recipe turned out well. It's not too rich but quite smooth and satisfying as chocolate vapes go.

An Irish potato candy. Coconut flakes and cream cheese rolled into a potato shape, and dusted with cinnamon. It ends up looking like a tiny potato!
I started doing this for the DIY Mixers Crew Cinnamon Challenge. I wasn't able to complete it in time due to life. I wanted to post this anyway. I wanted to make something kind of out there, that most people wouldn't think to do, so that's where this came in. It's a very simple recipe, not much explanation needed for it.
Toasted Coconut, Mixed Nuts, Sweet Brown Sugar, Toffee Undertones
A remix, with tobacco added.
This is the basic description of the commercial juice this is inspired by. I went on a business trip and did not take enough juice for the entire week. I wound up checking for a B&M but the only things near the hotel in that part of upstate NY sold their own house juices so I picked the one that looked more professional. This juice of theirs was the only one that resonated with me so I did their special for the day of 3x30 for 30$ From the minute I tasted it to the end of the third bottle all I could think was DAMMIT THIS NEEDS TOBACCO.
I went about this a bit different from my normal approach which is to get my tobacco profile and build on it. I went with an established profile, got as close to it as I wanted to adjusting for my tastes and added the tobacco. This is a darker rich profile, I wanted to keep in that vain keeping it rich and dark. I do not know that this is ADV material. But it is really good for me, I have been vaping this in the evenings.
Remixed my White Hummingbird, which was a cross between ENYAWREKLAW’s Yeo Layer and ID10-T’s Longing. I traded out FA Coco’ for FLV Coconut (at 0.5% . . . more on this in a bit). Dropped FLV Cream and FA Cream Fresh (1% each) in favor of OOO Cream Milky Undertone at 1%. I kept FE Sweet Rice (5%), TFA Honeysuckle (3%), and DFS Holy Vanilla (2%) where they were from the White Hummingbird.
I moved away from FA Meringue and TFA Vanilla Swirl in favor of the concentrates that make up Deejay_mills pudding stone (search /r/DIY-eJuice for pudding stone), changing up the percentages a bit. I went with FLV Vanilla Pudding at 2%, INW Custard at 1.25%, and (here’s where the coconut comes back into play) the aforementioned FLV Coconut at 0.5%.
All of this was attempted to make use of a new concentrate (and subsequently turn the white hummingbird pink) . . . FA Red Bean. Red Bean (adzuki/azuki) paste is a staple in Asian desserts . . . it is also in some of the best ice cream I’ve ever had (Red Bean Ice Cream from The Chinatown Ice Cream Factory in NYC). I’ve been obsessed with red bean desserts since I first tried the ice cream in 2000. It is a sweet, savory, earthy flavor that just speaks to me . . . it almost reminds me of a sweeter, softer, raw red-skinned peanut.
Red Bean is a natural pairing with sweet rice and custard/pudding. I started out at 0.5%, but that was way too forward. It overtook everything. I halved it, and it seems to be sitting pretty at 0.25% (I should have just taken Wayne's advice in his Red Bean Ice Cream recipe and not wasted my time and nicotine being hard headed). The sweet rice and creamy, vanilla custard/pudding make up the foundation and rides the front of the exhale. The earthy red bean paste gets swirled into the rice custard as you hit the midway point of the exhale. Finally, at the end of the exhale the honeysuckle just peaks through in a beautiful way.
Mixed 60vg/40pg and shook it up. This is definitely a SNV given the FE Sweet Rice. I will update as it steeps, but, off a shake, it is extremely well layered: starchy, sweet rice custard upfront . . . savory, earthy red bean in the middle . . . sweet vanilla-honeysuckle on the end. It is creamy throughout and, in my opinion, extremely enjoyable. I know it’s not for everyone, but, if you are a fan of red bean/red bean paste desserts, the FA Red Bean is a must have.
I took Deejaymillsnyc's pudding base and threw in Butter Pecan and it turned out great.
FLV Vanilla Pudding is pretty close to FLV Vanilla Custard just a tad bit sweeter and here it is the base we use to set up the pudding.
INW Custard is the king of all custards for me now. It's so thick and creamy and best of all is it has that iconic strength we know INW for along with being good right off the shake without weeks of steeping.
FLV Coconut is spendy but here, and most every where else, you're going to use drops at a time as it's incredibly strong. Here I used 1d/10ml. It just boosts the creamy and thick pudding base we are after.
FW Butter Pecan rich and buttery. Has only a slight aftertaste of pecan but it is realistic. This is actually my first time using it and I'm impressed by it.
The actual pudding base is worthy of a shake and vape but the pecan needs some time to show it's face so give this 5-7 days before basking in it's glory.
Give anyone of his pudding mixes a shot; you won't be disappointed!
