I have taken Fear's Bloody Mango Sorbet, because why reinvent the wheel?! That recipe is damn good and I enjoyed it. I wanted to add on to this for Fresh03's French episode. I will take it one step further to make a Mango-Basil Vacherin. It is a mango sorbet with a basil infused vanilla ice cream, garnished with lime zest.
After I let it sit and try it, there might be some changes in the basil and lime wedge. The basil might be beat out right now with all the citrus, and the lime wedge fades like crazy, so the sit is required, but i might not have put enough in it.
Something so weird and so delicious. This is my version of a commercial profile that I find absolutely disgusting. I knew that I could make the profile delicious.
Candied yams with a smidgen of cinnamon, drizzled in strawberry syrup with a bit of marshmallows and cookie.
I tried a few Yams and they were all mostly nasty with horrible off notes to me. FLV was pretty good but it tasted really raw and starchy but wasn't disgusting and no off notes. I knew that I needed something to warm it up and sort of cook it so using Rich cinnamon used super low achieved that first try. The Capella Sugar Cookie helps it out a bit here as the generic bakery kind of slides under as a base and fill it out. Sugar Cookie may not be the best but it's a phenomenal tool when used to build a bakery base.
I shamelessly stole ID10-T's marshmallow idea from a lucky charms cereal and it fit very well here. FLV Marshmallow and FLV Whipped Cream.
Then I tested strawberries in pairs. About 6 different iterations. RF, TFA Ripe, JF Sweet, INW Shisha, and then Capella released Ripe Strawberries. I was looking for something Ripe and syrupy kind of generic sweet red berry sauce that blended in. Shisha because... yeah... it's straight strawberry syrup. Capella because it brings that fairly authentic sweetened macerated strawberry thing. I love this new flavor.
Balance was the trickiest part once I nailed down the ingredients.. I wanted something slightly separated that started with sweet cooked yams and finished with the berries and nuances to keep you wanting to come back to it. If you mix it up please leave a review if you're a member and able to. If you want to play with subs, the cookie and strawberries leave some wiggle room for tweaking to your favorites. The yam, marshmallow, whipped cream, and rich cinnamon are not able to be substituted. That candied yam base is a thing of beauty.
This is a Peach Marshmallow dessert. The actual desert is made with gelatin to make the peaches a bit more gelatinous. What better concentrate to build the peach layer with than FLV Peach Gummy
To add to this layer, I use FLV Peach and FLV Nectarine.
Then FLV Cream is used to combine the fruits together. And of course FLV Marshmallow for the yummy marshmallow.
FLV Graham Cracker is used for the crust.
Milk, milk, lemonade, round the corner fudge is made!
I love Chef's choice flavours, and so I thought I would use some of my favourite ones to make a fudge liquid.
Fudge in the UK is a soft, chewy sweet/candy made mainly with butter and sugar (I think 'fudge' may be different in other countries), a little like a very soft toffee.
For this recipe, I combined both CC Clotted Cream Fudge and Vanilla Fudge in order to provide the main flavour profile; the two go together to make a nice rich foreground, but lacked the creaminess I wanted in the recipe.
This was achieved by adding CC Devon Cream (which is probably my favourite concentrate) in combination with CC Cookie Dough Ice Cream. CC CDIC is another of my favourites as it is hugely versatile in recipes and adds a lovely creamy, sweet depth of flavour and mouthfeel without being overpowering (it is also very nice as a standalone).
To add more to the caramel tones without detracting from the subtlety and creaminess, I added WF Hazelnuts and Cream and VT Love, both of which give a richness and added flavour to round everything out. I finished off by adding some Ethyl Maltol to ensure that it was nice and sweet!
To give a bit of info about my steeping/testing: I made a 120ml batch in a glass beaker, standing in a warm water bath. The water is just from the hot tap (don't want it too warm) and is not intended as a speed steeper, but purely to reduce the viscosity of the VG/PG so that it mixes and homogenizes more easily.
I then mix very thoroughly with 2 milk frothers until the liquid is slightly milky/aerated and cover the beaker with a foam earphone cover and let it sit until it is clear again.
After this I bottle it, label & date the bottles and keep them at room temperature in a storage box, typically using 1 bottle per week until the flavour seems just right.
For this one, 2 weeks has been enough for the creams to have settled in and the liquid to have a lovely flavour. I imagine that a couple more weeks will improve it further, but I am vaping it right now and REALLY enjoying it!
Please mix and let me know what you think!
For the bottom part: Used FLV Sweet Dough and FLV Cinnamon Crunch with a pinch of FLV Cupcake Batter to soften and moisten the bottom layer. The cinnamon notes give this vape that Christmas spices you wished it was Christmas already.
Filling: FLV Cranberry, FLV NY Cheesecake, and FLV Marshmallow to create the cheesecake filling, light and fluffy.
I used FLV Sweet Cream and FLV Frosting for the top layer, just to add a light creamy vanilla and candied touch to this recipe.
*I added for myself some FLV Sweetness @1%, I like sweet desserts, intentionally left it out of this recipe so you could have a choice yourself.
The FLV Cranberry, a sweet, ocean spray craisin like cranberry never get overhand in this mix, it just lingers in the background, reminding this is a Cranberry NY Cheesecake ;-)
Fancy something seasonal but not quite so heavy try this fruity, creamy Christmas cheesecake vape ? Try this well balanced and layered recipe.
Steep, best after 10 day's
Melo Cakes is a light foam of egg white placed on a tasty round biscuit, all coated with delicious Milka chocolate.
For the chocolate 'top', I used VTA Chocolate mousse, it comes close to the Milka chocolate taste I was after. It plays nice with the chocolate taste in the FLV Smores to create that unique 'first' bite in a Melow Cake. Very addicting vape.
The actual creamy and fluffy filling consists of FLV Smore, FLV Marshmallow, WF SC Vanilla Cream Extra, and VTA Fresh MIlk.
As for the cookie bottom layer, I used Cap Sugar Cookie and INW Biscuit for a little crunchiness.
This is not a Melow Cake, or is it?
It's for sure a tasty chocolate dessert vape, a very tasty vape, that needs a 2 week steep to bloom.
Complex? Yes, but every concentrate deserves its place in this light but flavorful packed vape.
It started as a question on FB first, I thought it was a challenge if I could replicate/create this wonderful Blood Orange Cheesecake.
For the bottom part: Used INW Biscuit and CAP Sugar Cookie with a pinch of FLV Cupcake Batter to soften and moisten the bottom layer.
Filling: FA Blood Orange, CAP NY Cheesecake, and FLV Marshmallow to create the cheesecake filling, light and fluffy.
Furthermore, I used WF Vanilla Cream Extra and FLV Sugar Orchid for the top layer, just to add a light creamy vanilla and candied touch to this recipe.
I added some FLV Sweetness, I like sweet desserts.
An extremely balanced and well-layered recipe, one I am proud of.
The FA Blood Orange never get overhand in this mix, it just lingers in the background, reminding this is a Bloody Orange Cheesecake ;-)

Apple & Cranberry Tarte Tatin
This ultimate fall and winter tart showcase the best fruits of the season: apples, and cranberries. Unlike other tarts, the Tarte Tatin is made upside down in a skillet.
All FLV in this recipe, less is more.
Apple Filling, Apple Cranberry and a twist of Lime Wedge are the fruit filling for this dark and delicious vape.
For the bakery foundation, I used Sweet Dough, Pastry Zest, and Granola, this combination with notes from cinnamon and crunchy nuts makes this a very enjoyable mix where all aromas are perfectly layered.
Opted for Butterscotch as dressing instead of caramel, the FLV Butterscotch has that perfect buttery/brown sugar taste I liked for this mix and added some Marshmallow for a smooth mouthfeel.
I find this perfectly sweetened for my taste but as always, sweeten to your likings.
Steeped this 14 days and in my honest opinion the perfect steep time.
