The hazelnut cream, butter cream and sweet coconut make up the nutmilk part of this ice cream. Vienna cream and Fa Vanilla ice cream give it the ultra smooth vanilla ice cream notes. Fa Cream fresh adds some additional light milk notes. The warm drizzle on top is made up of brown sugar with a touch of pumpkin spice.
This mix needs a good steep 10 days minimum best after 2+ weeks for the Vienna Cream, Fa Gelato and Cream Fresh to blend into the nutty notes and steep into one solid smooth ice cream.

Sweetener optional at 0.25%

The Great Pumpkin Cake
I said I was not going to do a pumpkin cake, but here it is. It is really quite tasty with FLV Pumpkin Spice and HS Pumpkin Pie. The Flv Sweet Dough and VT Butter Toffee mixed with the FLV Pound Cake add a yummy creamy base for the pumpkin. Topping the cake and mixed in is the VT Vanilla Buttercream Frosting.
These soft cookies have been a favorite of mine during the winter months. I used these delicious deli cookies from the local Starbucks for development reference. Ok firstly, This has been a tedious profile to tackle. As we probably all know pumpkin is evasive, and often, it's downright deplorable. Going through a gauntlet of pumpkin flavorings I finally landed on a combination of FLV Pumpkin Spice + TPA Pumpkin. Hangsen's Pumpkin Pie proved to be insanely weak during testing, not to mention a bit cloying after a steep when I attempted to push the flavor ceiling. I don't get why it's being recommended by so many. Maybe I'm just not handling it right. 🤷♂️
■ CAP Sugar Cookie + FLV Cookie Dough: The deli cookie style I referenced was a pumpkin glazed sugar cookie so it only made sense to use CAP Sugar Cookie. The inclusion of FLV Cookie Dough helps soften the crispness since I wanted a fluffier texture.
■ FLV Pumpkin Spice: This contributes more spice than anything. The pumpkin note is a bit light in the background.
■ TPA Pumpkin: This is the meat of the profile. (Pun intended) TPA Pumpkin lives up to it's name. It's straight pumpkin. When used in lower ratios it provides an authentic meaty canned pumpkin without sweetener. SFT with this concentrate was not enjoyable. However, when it's mixed with just the right level of spices and components it tag teams surprisingly well. I got this concentrate in specifically for this recipe task. While not incredibly versatile, After trial testing I can certainly recommend it for recipes you may be striving for of this nature.
■ CAP Butter Cream: Cookies need butter right? Beyond that it helps impart further fluff and a waxy texture comparable to cookies.
■ FA Vanilla Classic: Comparative to the darker vanilla extract we've come to know in northern america as the "bakery vanilla". This simply helps to attribute to the overall bakery experience while adding some contrast to the meaty pumpkin.
■ FA Meringue: Another mouthfeel component, but also serves to further "moisten" the cookie.
■ CAP Super Sweet: While not wanting to go overboard, I felt the profile needed a sweetness boost being that this is a dessert recipe.
