Episode 87 - I saw a coffee drink, so I went for a gingerbread flavored latte. The Biscuit Base, Gingerbread, Gingerbread extra ginger, and Graham Cracker Clear make up the gingerbread flavor part of the latte. I was not aiming to have it be like eating the cookie stuck in the cup, that's just decoration, I was going for the drink itself. So the cookie flavor is not super distinct as a crunchy cookie. I think if I were going to go for that style I would have added FA cookie, some AP, and possibly some TFA Snickerdoodle. Just suggestions if you would like to try it out with this recipe.
The coffee layer consists of the VT Caffe Latte, and coffee milk froth. TO me the milk froth has no coffee notes in, but it's thick, creamy, and nearly buttery, which does help bridge the cookie flavors into the coffee. The Caffe Latte is not super strong, and competing with the creams and rich cookie flavors, it does need to be up at 4%. It was just enough for me to get a good stout coffee note for both me and my husband when we tested it. If you mix this and find it isn't quite strong enough for coffee notes for you, you could easily bump it up by 0.5% until you reach a point that it works for you. I would imagine most average tasters will be satisfied with the coffee level in this recipe. If you're a little sensitive, like I am it could probably be lowered by 0.5%, as when I tried it at 3.5% level I could taste the coffee well enough, but my husband couldn't taste it over the creams.
The FLV Whipped cream hangs out on the top layers of the profile, caught most at the end of the exhale and slight aftertaste of whipped cream.
I didn't find that it needed sweetener. However if you are someone who likes sweetener adding your preferred level to this recipe should yield good results.
This is a delightful recipe for the cool winter days coming up here in the Northern Hemisphere. If you like coffee and gingerbread you'll enjoy this flavor.
Chocolate Cookie Pudding
This is just delicious. This is one of my favorite recipes so far I have created using Flavorah. Two ingredients that I have fell in love with now, and see they are well under rated, Beer Nuts and Biscotti. Biscotti is a flavor that if you use it too high, it will probably take over your recipe, but if you use it just right it is a beautiful flavor. I almost would suggest making a dilution of this flavor. In this recipe I only use .06% which is 1 drop in a 30 ml bottle. But that little drop is such a punch if flavor.
A great addition if you have some saline, add .25% of saline to the mix. This really helps to bring the nutty notes forward and the bakery.

My grandfather used to make a Millionaire Pie every year for Thanksgiving. He would make an extra one, just because we all loved it so much. He gave me his recipe many year ago. He began getting sick a few years ago, and so I started making the Millionaire Pie for holidays for the family at my family's request. He has since then passed away, and it has become something I make every year. Since he got sick, I have been trying to make this into a vape form, and this has gone through close to 100 iterations to try and make it "perfect". The problem is, it will never be perfect. This is the next iteration that I am making, and in light of Fresh03's Metal Mixing, and the song End of Heartache by Killswitch Engage, this is the first public iteration that I have released, and will release changes along the way as well. I will put notes below:
The Graham Cracker Crust: Pastry zest adds that little something that makes the authentic crust in a vape form. Graham Crust and Cinnamon Sugar make the graham cracker portion, giving a good flavor and slight texture.
Filling: I did a lot of layering here to try and get the filling balanced, I feel its getting there, but as always, I will think it needs something differet. The two condensed milks add a great balance, and make for the sweet condensed milk base. The whipped creams, FLV being a very authentic whipped cream taste with a good mouthfeel; CAP adds a hint of vanilla which plays well with everything, and adds a layer of whipped cream. The cream cheese icing adds more mouthfeel and depth, as well as the cream cheese taste which is also part of the base of the pie.
Filling "Toppings": FLV pineapple is slightly sharp, but sweet and I feel it mixes well in this. FW Butter pecan is a cream and sweet pecan, which lends a great pecan taste, the butter blending in with the rest of the creams. WF Roasted pecans and cream adds a hint of realness and the toasted pecan taste.
The mix is sweet as it is, you can put sweetener to taste. I like it sweet, and this is a very sweet dessert, so I add a touch of SS
This is a White Whale of mine, that I have been working on for too long. It will never be perfect, I can only hope to get it where I feel its "Acceptable". It will probably never be finished sadly.
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.
Absolutely yummy. A cracker jack sundae.
Star of the show is WF SC Caramel Popcorn and Peanuts, the peanuts in this is amazing. The popcorn needs a little boost. As well as the caramel.
This being a sundae, i have a ice cream base of LB Icecream with HS French Vanilla Ice Cream. This is one of my favorite icecream combinations. The ice cream is layered with caramel, butterscotch, toffee, and cracker jacks And topped with whipped cream
Sweeten to your liking.
To me this is very much a Frappe or a Frozen Cappuccino.
If you would like a bit stronger of a Coffee Flavor you can add 1-3 drops max to 30ml of FA- Coffee / Espresso to push the coffee out more from the creams. Made a 2nd batch and added 1 drop to 30ml and it still turned out nice and smooth with more pronounced coffee flavor.
I have tried several Coffee Flavors and mixed 100 mixes (of my own as well as others recipes) and have not found a true, but smooth coffee flavor. WF has out done themselves with the Smooth Cappuccino Cream. It is the perfect coffee flavor IMO. It is def coffee but it is sweet, creamy and so smooth. To me it is border line cappuccino and a medium to mild roasted coffee. I added the FLV Biscotti to this one at 0.5% because I think it has more of a deep bitter coffee flavor than a bakery flavor. I'm not even 100% sure what a Biscotti is supposed to taste like honestly lol. But at this % in this mix it blends so well with the WF SCC and helps keep the coffee flavor from being lost in the creams. I added WF VIC for the Vanilla as well as the rich Creaminess I get from it. It is another awesome new WF flavor that I am loving. and the FLV WC and Cream are to help back it up in the creaminess. This has turned out so well. I gave it a hot bath uncapped for about an hour capped it shook it good again and let it cool then gave it a go. It was delicious , the second day it was a little more blended and rounded out but still dang good. If you like smooth creamy and sweet coffee mixes I hope you give this one a mix and let me know what you think..
My husband said this mix is almost a dead ringer for Deja Brew's Cinnamon Coffee just minus the cinnamon note. lol..
