May 2021 - Florals
This isn't a floral submission, but it's a version of my duets recipe from February that I believe is improved with input from reviews, and I would like your thoughts yet again.
I have been really enjoying the TPA/SSA PB combo and used that here, dropping the FW Hazelnut and FLV Beer Nuts. It's used real low, because it was really taking over here. I went another way with the raspberry and plugged VT Raspberry Jam in here instead of FLV Red Raspberry and INW Shisha Raspberry. I also did away with the CAP Jelly Candy and brought the OOO Powdered Sugar from Saito in.
I hope you enjoy it!

Mixed at 70/30 using River VG/PG.
This recipe wouldn’t be where it is now without the generous help, support, guidance & advice from LukeLoop & Pippa Starr (DIYDownunder-Pippa). This has been a recipe I’ve been working on since I started mixing over 12 months ago, & has been quite the labor of love! It’s very loosely based on the flavours in Humble juice Co. “Humble crumble”. It was a beautiful moment recently when a friend told me they preferred this over the Humble Crumble! It blew me away actually!!😳🥺
It was very unbalanced to begin with, being all berry & no crumble, but Luke & Pippa got me on a more balanced track!
This was also an exercise in using what I had, & not using any crumble topping. A crumble topping from scratch so to speak!!
This may look like a hot mess express with all the bakeries, but each & every 1 of them brings something unique to the recipe (I think).
The last change made was the addition of CAP Golden Butter-previous versions didn’t have it-it was nice, but it needed some more butteryness.
I also thought of increasing the FA caramel by .15 to .75. But I hypothesised that the golden butter may add additional caramel notes. I tested after 14 day steep (14 days is minimum-I would suggest longer for the full effect), & to me, the caramel notes are adequate with the .50%, but you could try another .15% FA Caramel if you wanted. I might revisit this down the track, along with another 1% of TPA Vanilla Swirl (that was another hypothesis, but I was assured privately that the recipe looked good where it was). Anyway, I’m quite happy with it as is for the moment.
I guess it’s a case of where do you stop fiddling & tweaking a recipe before you release it? Lol!! I could keep fiddling, but, I do think it’s nice at this point-in saying that, it’s definitely not off the cards that I’ll fiddle with this more in the future! I hope you like it!! I’m truly an open book-if you have any suggestions, or you think I should move the caramel or vanilla swirl, please let me know your thoughts!!
Feel free to sweeten-I’m sensitive to the stuff, so I generally try to avoid it if & when I can!!
Vaping is under attack globally...all I ask is that you do your little bit-in whichever way you can, in whatever capacity you see fit, whenever you can. We all need to unite in the fight to keep vaping available...not only for us in the vaping/DIY community, but for all the smokers out there, yet to discover the life saving technology that is vaping.
Please, do what you can to keep up with advocacy where you are at in the world-not only for your benefit, but for the benefit of the community...as well as for family, friends, colleagues & acquaintances who are still smokers...for those yet to find vaping...
use that "Google Foo people"
As Nick, Grimm Green would say "Don't let any crooked politician tell you otherwise...vaping (has been proven to be) AT LEAST 95% safer than smoking deadly combustible tobacco..."
"The SCIENCE HAS to win, ...Right?"
Keep on, vaping on people!!! ...
&, keep ur DIY'ing game on too!!! ✌️
Tested on Recurve RDA; Stainless Steel Fused Clapton (24X2+40); .15 ohms; 60watts; long 510 drip tip.
My dream for quite a while was to create a velvety smooth vape that is simple for the palette to enjoy day in day out.
Something with depth, with a symphony of my favorite dark syrupy berries complimented with a hint of deep cream to suit.
Aged bourbon cream by WF paired best with FA Vanilla Bourbon here & up against the delicious mix of berries here it's just wonderful.
Adding just a little Cap NY cheesecake helped the depth of those creams a little more and the FLV Vanilla pudding really helped to round this out for an almost silky like finish.
Take out the berries & add your favorite other cooked fruit if you like!
Maybe you might prefer Banana or some baked strawberries.
Give it a go!
But this is about the wonderful blend of berry notes that I enjoy and putting together, that's why Jammy Berry, Mora & Wild Berry Gummy feature here.
There are some things in this mix that need time to meld & grow a little. You can mix this off the shake but the real depth of smooth & bold flavour seems to come in at around Day 4 of the steep.
I enjoy vaping this on a 0.15 SST twin coil RDA build with around a 2/3 open airflow at 70W.
I hope you enjoy these "Velvet Dreams" as much as I did creating this lovely blend.
Let me know what you thought or how you adapted it to suit you, regardless keep having fun with the best hobby in the world & staying off them stinkies!

Wow, Flavorah did it with the Blackberry. Excellent!!!
This is a Blackberry yogurt cake.
Flavorah Pound cake is the cake element, I am using Pastry Zest to add a touch of lemon. The Greek yogurt is adding some creamy texture the cake layer, and the Frosting is going to sweeten this and add a glaze.
The star Blackberry I used at .75, which to me was perfect especially adding a touch of Jammy Berry.
Give about 5 days for nap time.
A mixed berry and grape lemonade
This ones for all the fruit lovers, a sweet lemonade with the mixed dart berries and grape following thereafter.
I wanted to take the black currant a bit higher but it starts to get floral so I bolstered the mix with boysenberry, the jammy berry is there to give it a syrupy taste.
You can vape this straight away but after a week is what I recommend to get a bit more mouthfeel.
Sweetener is subjective, drop it out of you wish.
Raspberry & Custard Danish
The raspberry aspect is mainly made up of vta raspberry jam, one of my favourites amongst raspberries. Ive paired this with flavorah red raspberry which unfortunatly suffers from that watered down taste some other raspberries have but at 1% helps the jam feel slightly baked and the vta prevents the watery feeling appearing. Added a touch of jammy berry for good measure and the help shine over the buttery notes.
Pastry wise ive been trialing croissant by vta which i thinks pretty accurate and buddied up with philly butter cake at 2% it develops abit more of a cakey layer and ups the butter for the danish. Fa joy finishes this off to what i feel is a pretty authentic danish base.
Supporting flavours are a topping of almond and meringue to replicate a light frosting. Vc2 makes a good custard for this recipe as i find it can be a little pudding like and softer than caps and fa's custards.
Sweeten to taste and hope you enjoy
NOTES: CAP CRANBERRY IS SSA CRANBERRY JAM
CAP BISCUIT IS SSA SHORTBREAD BISCUIT
OOO POWDERED SUGAR IS SSA VANILLA SUGAR
Firstly this isnt entirely accurate if im honest. The shortbread is a little doughy (cookie doughy) and slightly undercooked, jf biscuit does bring in more crisp biscuit notes however the custard dials the grainy mouthfeel down slightly.
That being said, this doesnt taste like crap at all, its rich and butter heavy, carries a great mouthfeel boosted by the custard with nice cookie dough like biscuit qualities. The cranberry is on point and boosted by flv's jammy berry, ive not added sweetener as the berry jam is already sweet enough to cut through and stand out from the buttery biscuit and custard layers.
Deffo worth a try 👌👌
Wf crumble topping instead of jf biscuit works well too 😋
