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!
Inspiration for this recipe struck after working on a pumpkin pie ice cream. Looking into it tropical eggnog, it is actually a thing!!! In Puerto Rico it's called Coquito After looking at a few recipes decided this was something I needed it my life. and trust me when I say you need it yours. Smooth creamy eggnog with a coconut kick, what's not to love?
FLV eggnog- this is hands-down the best eggnog flavoring I have tasted to date. smooth and creamy custard, with nutmeg and cinnamon. An obvious choice for a solid base to this recipe.
FA custard - wanted to add an extra layer of custard without the spices. I tried several different variations including, CAP vanilla custard, and FLV custard, flavourart custard was my favorite. CAP vanilla custard ended up muting all of the spice notes, but was still very tasty. FLV custard was also very tasty but didn't add any complexity into the recipe.
Coconuts - all three of these flavorings have their strengths and weaknesses. The combination of these three, at these percentages, highlights all of their strengths. To be honest you could probably get away with just using one (my favorite was sweet coconut at 3%.) That said this combination is far more complex, and was definitely my favorite.
FA Jamaican special- frankly how can you have eggnog without rum? And when looking at rum flavorings if a Jamaican special, also known as Jamaican rum is definitely at the top shelf. This concentrate has a great rum flavor, that pairs up perfectly with the eggnog. I was hoping it would bring a little warmth to the recipe unfortunately, that is not the case you could always try a little TFA Kentucky bourbon, it does bring a level of warm but can't get past the off notes.
FA marshmallow - does a few things here, for us helps soften the harsh notes, the nutmeg can have as a shake and vape, along with adding a fluffy texture, and adds an extra level of sweetness.
When I was blueprinting this recipe before doing any research on the topic I had banana in the mix. After researching and tasting a reference. Decided to keep this traditional, oddly enough the combination of eggnog and coconut does give me a banana flavor, and TFA Banana Foster would fit in here very very well.
Criticism and feedback, are much appreciated. Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy.
Biko is a Filipino rice cake made of sticky rice, coconut cream, coconut milk, and brown sugar. Some recipes include butter; which is always a welcomed addition in the recipe, but not required. This is a traditional Filipino sweet and sticky rice cake that was often eaten during the holidays or during parties when I was small.
For this recipe, I wanted to capture this rich, delicious, and very much loved dessert my mother would make for us.
It is very tasty right away but 1 week steep would be optimal.
♥️ I hope you enjoy it ♥️
★Q & A
• Question: Is this very sweet?
• Answer: Yes. On a sweetness scale: 1 (not sweet) - 5 (very sweet). I would rank it a 4.5.
If you do not prefer added sweeteners like Super Sweet - feel free to substitute with Meringue. Or feel free to leave the sweetener out. It is nice & sweet on its own.
• Question: Can I mix at a higher VG ratio?
• Answer: Sure thing. 70/30, 80/20, whichever you prefer. However I would increase the steeping time. Approx. 1.5 - 2 weeks.

This is a nice light coconut cream pie flavor. Perfect for a nice light dessert vape. This could Definetely be used as a Stone to add fruits to as well. I simply love it just as is.
FLV Coconut - Brings that Authentic cocunut flavor and really make it taste top notch.
TFA Coconut Candy - This adds a nice cocunut sweetness to the recipe bringing it to more of that dessert type flavor.
Graham Cracker Clear and inw biscuit -combine to bring the flaky Crust of a pie to the recipe.
Vanilla Swirl TFA - brings a solid vanilla flavor that works well in various bakery recipes.
Shisha vanilla - this Adds a nice light sweet Vanilla flavor to add to the goodness of vanilla Swirl.
TFA Butter- just brings a little buttery note to the flaky Crust to make it feel like a true bakery pie fresh out of the oven.
FA Cream Fresh adds that nice dairy note as well as the whipped cream topping that you experience in a real Cocunut cream pie.
Cap Supersweet- this is optional, but I think it just gives the recipe a much needed sweetness to make it that much better. Mixed at 70/30. Steep 7 days for best results .
So the coconut, custard, van pudding is a base ive been using for several months whenever i wanted to make a fruit pudding (especially tropicals). Much sucess has come when ive add banana, soursop, and mango to this pudding. Add your favorite fruit. Ive been sitting on this one for a while and it wasnt until recently that some1 mentioned how accurate of a pudding that base is on it own. Flv van pudding does a wonderful job here and Imo is a great flavor to lay down for other stuff to sit on. Ive tried hard to take it down lower just because i use this concentrate often (especially in golden oreo pudding)
This is not a coconut pudding. You can not use flv sweet coconut. Flv coconut is a great thickening agent used in low amounts.
Pudding is thick no? The custard beefs up that flv van pudding.
For it to stand out as a straight vanilla pudding i needed to up the vanilla. Shisa vanilla is no secret that vanilla creaminess it can add to a mix. Holy vanilla while good just kinda messed with my delicate pudding.
Ive tried this recipe with a few diff bav creams cuz before flv van pudding came into my life bav crean was the only thing that came close to pudding for me. Tpa bav cream was my 2nd favorite version and fw bav cream was my least favorite. Which was surprising since that tends to be my favorite of the bunch (fw). If you dont have jf bav cream just mix it with TFAs, if details in a flavor matter to you mix it with jf bav cream :)
Puddings are kinda like my thing irl, im always on my fat kid shit.
Swiss miss creamy vanilla is my favorite kinda pudding. Second to my my mother's rice pudding <3
