This has been a tricky profile to nail down due to the cake flavour going under the radar with past attempts, this one finally nails it down.
A soft pink and yellow sponge cake with a light slathering of apricot jam and a coat of marzipan to finish
The cake base comes in the form of WF fluffy white, CAP sugar cookie cake and OOO cornbread, Fluffy white cake and sugar cookie brings all the characteristics of a sponge except the crumb so corn bread just boosts that element slightly making the cake a bit more bolder and visible amongst the other components.
MB apricot jam is perfect here as it has that jammy feel I’m looking for without using extra concentrates to boost the pectin content.
Finally the marzipan is built by using FA almond and FA marzipan, using almond aswell as marzipan just helps build layers so the marzipan becomes a bit more “bitey” rather than an almond fondant from using marzipan alone it has a touch of graininess to it representing the sugary feel a bit better.
Sweetener is subjective and if you’re not a fan you can leave it out but I feel it helps the marzipan so bare that in mind.
If you make this then please rate and review accordingly, another way to support me is by purchasing some of my one-shots from either of these vendors below :)
Smooth almonds coated with sticky caramel toffee.
FA Almond is the undisputed king of almonds and sits proudly as the chieftain here. It fulfills the role of nut (duh) but more importantly, it adds a delicious creaminess and in doing so, blends seamlessly with the toffee to create a fabulously thick and creamy toffee.
FW Hazelnut boosts the nuttiness a tad and assists further with the overall, nutty, creamy feel.
Caramel Toffee and English toffee has been my go-to caramel/toffee flavour for quite some time now and is just a phenomenal combo. It’s versatility is boundless and this is my maiden voyage by using it with a nut base. It does a splendid job in creating a thick and creamy toffee with zero off notes.
This baby needs 5 days to come together and will just improve with a longer steep.
This is more like a variation on an existing recipe,an exercise on how to remake an older recipe using newer flavours,without changing the profile of the original recipe,which is this one https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/122776#almond_macarons_by_nks.The idea was suggested from me in the vape alchemists group and i guess it could be really helpful for new mixers and it could also be a kind of example on how to adjust any recipe depending on your taste buds and your flavour stash
Overall,the recipe doesn't change much,i still enjoy the older version as much as i enjoy the new.
Mixer's Club Theme: Try something new. This is definitely new for me. I wanted to make a mix using those specific flavors to create one profile that wasn't exactly cereal, not quite the berry forward, not too sweet, semi floral. It was more about getting these components to work in a mix that going for any specific real thing.
B- For the berry i went with the daveberry trinity scaled down by a third. It sticks out distinctly as a berry here without dominating the mix.
W- The wheat here is both flv wheat and jf biscuit. wheat brings an almost floral wheat note that biscuit fills in with a sweeter, lightly flaky body. I tried some RF Baked Bread sc but it was a little overpowering and i didn't feel like it was adding to the profile. I got wf frosted puff cereal and wanted to try it in here but it came too late. Im happy with where this is at anyway because I struggled to get a solid almond note I wanted.
A - for the almond I used FA almond. I searched high and low in my drawer for wf almond cookie to see if i could use this in place of jf biscuit but also boost out the almond. Never did find it. I tried a little FA marzipan but it didnt make any noticable difference for me so I left it out. Just kept dialing this up until I liked where it was just under the wheat.
H - I tried flv honey bee for the honey. It was too floral without enough sweet. Decided to give vt a run here. It has a bit of wiggle room between 2-3 % but I definitely wanted it to be both the bulk of the sweet and the almond wheat bowtie.
I think what came out was interesting and not too bad. Hope you like it. outside my wheelhouse so any criticism, suggested flavors, just 'give up' comments are welcome. :)
This is a pineapple - banana - coconut smoothie with almond milk!
The smoothie: Milkshake Base VTA + Vanilla Ice Cream LB create a great base for starting most milkshakes/smoothies. Adding Coconut Custard WF + Creamy Custard VTA and Avocado Cream VTA is what makes this recipe a creamy smoothie and not a milkshake.
The almonds: Almond FA + Amaretto Sour FLV combined bring tangy almond top notes, pairing great with most fruits.
The toppings: The most prominent topping in this recipe is the Sugarloaf Pineapple VTA, making this recipe rather pineapple heavy at 2%. Banana Custard brings banana to the top, while supported by Creamy Custard and Avocado Cream you can also find banana throughout the whole body of the recipe. Sweet Coconut FLV is not enough to make coconut a main component of this recipe, adding a very sublte coconut flavour. It is mainly added in the mix to tame the pineapple and amaretto sour a little.
Vanilla almond milk- I made this for an episode of Mixin’ Vixens. It turned out pretty nice.
It’s pretty thick and rich for a milk- more like a cream that tastes like milk. The VT Vanilla Cream and VT Sweet Cream combo is so good. Then I added FLV Milk to give more of a milky taste and velvety, smooth mouthfeel.
I wanted to darken it all up a bit so used FA Vanilla Bourbon as it’s a lovely, darker vanilla. FA Butterscotch also adds a bit of dark sweetness.
FA Almond was an obvious choice as it’s so tasty. I used a little TFA Toasted Almond to try to bring it forward in the mix.
It needs about a week for everything to come through and balance out. It’s not bad before that. The creams are just a little light and it lacks body.
We were doing "Wishing Well! Australian Brush Fires!" on SaturDIY'ing with fresh03 and Friends! and I made this recipe for Corvape who requested a strawberry macaron which is different from a macaroon (that's the coconut treat), thing is, I can't taste strawberry in vapes.
MB MECHMODRN helped me out with the strawberries. I do get something from VSO Strawberry which I used instead of FA Red Touch.
Notes to come!
Enjoy, be queer and vape on!
