I developed this recipe as a "modern" version of Wayne's Fried ice-cream
Cereal 27 + Berry Crunch give me a nice cereal that covers the Ice-cream
Vanilla custard + marshmallow and merenge to create our Ice-Cream base
Bavarian Cream and Joy for the "Fried" flavor and feeling
Strawberry Ripe just for the sweetness of it.
NOTE: FA Joy and TFA Dragonfruit are at 2 drops p/30ml.

Welcome, this is by far the most amount of time I've spent on a recipe. I have been mixing for over a year and this is a recipe I have revisited countless times. The last one I actually released is under "Zider Donut" if you're interested in seeing the last semi-completed version, and you can see how far it's come. The original goal was to create an apple cider cake-doughnut. Back when I was a kid my mom would take us to the Louisburg Cider Mill for the fall festival. We would get hot apple cider and get a doughnut to go with it. You dipped your doughnut in the cider and you were in heaven for just a few short moments. I wanted to try and recreate the experience. I researched, tried, and failed on many batches. I ended up taking a break on it for a few months because I got so frustrated. So I mixed some other things for a while, not thinking about it, but the hunger became too great and I started again. I even labeled the batches "Don't do this to yourself again, man" but I pressed on. After may more iterations I ended up creating a profile that wasn't really what I intended, but became all the more amazing.
A long time ago Enyawreklaw told me during a live mix that a recipe like this can be pretty hard to do, but if you do it right it'll be great. This is by far my best crack at it.
I present to you an apple cider bear claw that is simply delicious. On to the notes!
Doughnut Pastry Thing: Oh thank sweet baby Jesus for FA Zeppola, this was the flavor that actually made me start working on this recipe again. It works great as a start on a doughnut and doesn't have the jelly filling that FA Joy has at high %'s. It also gives a powdered sugar note that combines well with CAP CDS for a cinnamon sugar layer on it. Swapping from FW to JF Yellow Cake helps retain the greatness of FW, but doesn't kill your coils as fast. I was still going for the cake part of the doughnut so I kept it, but it plays really well with FA Joy and Zeppola. Just 2 drops/30ml of Joy brings it together
Dat Apple Cinnamon Doh: Creating something that realistically creates an Apple Cider profile is a huge pain in the ass. I tried a FA Fuji/FA Liquid Amber combo for a while, which worked okay, but still didn't bring it to where I wanted. When I first read that HS Apple Mix had an apple cider taste to it I immediately picked up some to try, and man did it make a difference. It definitely has an apple-cidery (is that a word?) taste on it's own, but it also has an almost cranberry taste to it, so I backed it up with a little bit of FA Fuji Apple to help keep it apple, and back off the cranberry. CAP CDS of course helps out the rest of the apple cinnamon flavor, at 2.5% it brings an up-front cinnamon flavor but you can consider backing it off to 2% if it's too strong.
The Fuck is TFA Dragonfruit Doing in Here?: TFA Dragonfruit is your friend. At low %'s it backs up apple cinnamon combos splendidly (Strawberries too!), it helps create a baked cinnamon-apple flavor and I highly suggest it in any apple-cinnamon recipe you are considering. this is also used at 2 drops/30ml
FA Meringue: Just 1% of this stuff creates the frosting and you are done. I hope you enjoy this recipe that's been an emotional roller coaster for me.

Fried Donut soaked in sticky syrup and sugar glazed.
The idea came from a member of the DIYORDIE Facebook group who was chasing a Fried syrup donut; having the afternoons off I decided to have a go, posting this as I was pleasantly surprised at how good it turned out.
I had Yum Yums in the back of my mind when creating this for some reason, so I'm sticking with it!
FA Zeppola/FA Joy: Zeppola is my go to for donuts. It's got a light fried note, and I believe it's the most palatable of donuts. Boosted by FA Joy. Gives it a fuller, more doughy quality.
FA Meringue/FA Torrone: Sugar glazed effect. The nutty qualities of Torrone also compliment the Zeppola really well.
FA Caramel/FA Maple Syrup/CAP VCV1: This makes for a lovely sugary syrup, the Maple is well under control, blends into the caramel. The custard butters them up nicely and also helps to bind the whole recipe together.
I think the Supersweet is a necessary evil to achieve an authentic sugary syrup and 0.5% feels perfect here, not too much.
Not a shake and vape! Joy/Torrone/ Custard need time to do their thing 😉
Bang on after 1 week.
Open to constructive criticism.
