The default in this area is "No Description" and it fits. I cannot describe this flavor and I have not met anyone else who can either. I would not presume to compare this recipe to Grack but it does have some of the the same enigmatic flavor and mouthfeel characteristics as that famous juice. The recipe needs a 3 week steep to be at its finest. When it turns gold it is ready to go. It will also work very well with nic up to 12mg, I have not tried it above 12. Would welcome your thoughts.
The Year of Mixing Week 43 - Spooky Halloween Eye Ball Cupcakes.
I decided the cake was going to be a fruity chocolate cake with a blending of CAP Cupcake, FLV Red Velvet, and TFA Ruby Chocolate. The ruby chocolate has that hint of fruitiness to it so that it ties in the red velvet into the strawberry flavored frosting and the light coconut red colored drizzle on top. A touch of marzipan let's you know you're eating those little marzipan candy props ( the eyeball and knife in the cupcake) and the FW bavarian cream just acts as a rich blender to bring all the flavors to a smooth creamy exhale.
A touch of sweetness is listed, but you can feel free to use whatever sweetener you prefer or non at all. IF you forgo any sweetener, I suggest putting in 0.5% FA Juicy Strawberry to sweeten it up a bit more beyond what the Marzipan is doing in this recipe. You want it to be sweet, it's a cupcake after all.
It's okay off the shake, at least it's vapeable, but it is a tad dry to start out with. As it steeps the dryness of the chocolate lessens as the creams and cakes start to develop more. I suggest a 2 week minimum steep, but 3 to 4 weeks works better.

A full-flavored Raspberry/Strawberry mix after 5-days steeping.
The Phillipine Mango gives this mix more body. Lemon Meringue makes it "pop". And Peach adds a layer of juiciness.
A tad harsh for the 1st three days. I steeped mine 5 days. 3 months in, still extremely flavorful.
This recipe is for The Year of Mixing week -42 inspiration.
This is a blend of berry notes with a touch of citrus intertwined, softened by a gentle cream and sweet coconut flavors. The Candy Wizard is used to sweeten and add a jammy richness, while balanced with the sour notes of Sour Wizard, and everything is softly smoothed with a bit of TFA Smooth.
This works well as a shake and vape recipe, but if you find it a touch harsh shake and vape, add up to 1% TFA Smooth to calm down the harsh notes as long as you don't plan to steep it. If you are going to steep for the 2 weeks it needs to be fully steeped leave the smooth levels as is in the recipe. I do also suggest adding (if you enjoy it) 0.75% FA Arctic Winter (Menthol) and 0.2% WS-23 to this mix. It adds a lovely element to it that I quite enjoy. If you do not like menthol or Cooling you can leave one or both out if you dislike them.
The past few months I've been coming back to this strawberry kiwi profile over and over and never getting it quite how I wanted it. One of my only other public recipes right now- my Blue Dot Vapors Strawkiji Freeze remix- was my starting point, and this is where I've ended up. The resolution to a lengthy process of trial and error, waiting on new flavors to come in, and some more trial and error. Resolver is a bright, juicy, sweet strawberry kiwi with a nice punch of cooling.
I have been messing around with flavor combos for this profile for a while, this is my favorite rendition so far. Its just a simple butter cookie with strawberry and imo its quite tasty. I will continue to mess around with this profile and different flavor combos since its such a tasty profile to experiment with, but this one i think was worth sharing.
Cap Crunchy Frosted Cookie - If you do not have this extract it will ruin the recipe. this is the base flavor everything is going to sit on.
INW Shortbread Cookie(or INW Biscuit)- I wanted to use this because it is new and there are a lot of rhubarb tarts that use a shortbread base. This extract is not as dark as INW biscuit but if you go to high with shortbread it appears to take on a popcorn like quality. The initial smell of this smells almost like FLV popcorn. You can replace this with inw biscuit at the same percentage and achieve similar results.
FLV Rhubarb- This is the only realistic rhubarb in my opinion. WF is basically raspberry, VT is basically sour mush, INW is way too green and vegetale. I have never used this higher than .4 and I do not recommend you go any higher. Even after a 14 day steep the rhubarb still has that sour root flavor right on top where you want it.
FA Red Touch- I removed the sweet strawberry because I felt like it took away from the main rhubarb profile I had going before so I'm reverting this back to the original state at 2%.
Flapper Pie WF- Flapper pie is pretty much a perfect blend of custard and meringue. I didn't go above 3% because I do not want any of the graham cracker notes to poke through.
Fuji apple, strawberry plus a little stone fruit twist.
Sweet, crisp, fresh and juicy.
Fuji + Shisha Apple + So Sour
This combo gives crisp, red apple with a green apple sour hint. Definitely on a candy side.
Shisha Strawberry + Red Touch
Sweet, syrupy strawberry. Not much more to say about this combo.
Apricots + Peach White
One of my favorite stone fruits combo. Apricot gives some ripe accents to the peach, mellows edges and brings a little bit of softness to the texture.
This combo tastes a little bit like a nectarine.
Meringue + Sweetener
MOAR SWEETNESS! The half percent of a meringue is here for sweet, sugary mouthfeel. That's what makes it taste commercial-like, which I like.
Omit sweetener and lower Meringue to 0,25% if you hate shelf, oversweetened juices.
The INW - Yes, We Cheesecake is the best cheesecake flavor available and creates the base for the cheesecake trinity. Capella - New York Cheesecake is the first support flavor, bringing an additional note of caramelized sugar for the crust, adding some serious creaminess, and opening the bridge to vanilla flavors a bit more. Lastly, the TFA - Cheesecake (Graham Crust) completes the crusty undertone portion of the trinity and adds another hint of dairy. This trio can be used in any capacity to add an authentic and delicious cheesecake profile to a recipe. It's okay in a SNV, but I really suggest waiting about a week for it to come together.
Full credit goes to ID10-T for the groundbreaking and delicious combination of strawberry flavors used in this. His description is more than sufficient: A unique strawberry syrup (INW Shisha Strawberry), a realistic freeze-dried strawberry (FA Red Touch), and a candy strawberry that puts CAP Sweet Strawberry to shame (JF Sweet Strawberry). This was used to create the semi-artificial strawberry topping for the cheesecake recipe. I decided to add some TFA Pie Crust to bring out the graham cracker crust a bit more, and deepen the profile to balance with the strawberry's tartness.
I tweeked this recipe from the original release by adding FA Apricot (Armenia) and adjusting the Strawberry flavorings a bit. It is now at a point that I am finished messing with it and call it done from my perspective. The FA Apricot made the Peach flavor more natural, and the adjusted strawberries elevated the Peach so that it slightly dominates over the Strawberry. When I vape it the initial exhale is a nice Custard followed by the Peach with the fruit combo settling on the palette which somedays tastes more Strawberry and others more Peach (which is how I remember vaping Peachtree Street). I also reduced the New York Cheesecake and upped the Vanilla Custard which got rid of that dryness I was getting in the vape in the prior recipe. For those that liked the prior recipe here it is:
CAP Dragon Fruit 0.75%
CAP New York Cheesecake 3%
LA Peach (colorless) 3%
FA Red Touch (Strawberry) 3.5%
TPA Strawberry (ripe) 3.5%
CAP Sweet Strawberry 1.5%
CAP Vanilla Custard v1 2%

I've been working this recipe off-and-on for almost 2 years. I feel this has gotten to the point to get it out there, but I reserve the right to tweak it. This recipe was patterned off of the Peachtree Street eLiquid from HiggyCigs. I will never get that recipe down, but this is pretty nice. The balance between the fruit and the custard still needs a little work, and I’m concerned the flavors are a little too high across the board.
The concept is to have a rich creamy Custard base with a natural Peach and tart Strawberry topping. I played around with many Custards and creams and it never worked well, but when Wayne published King's Custard using Capella New York Cheesecake I decided to try it and it works very well indeed. I know LA Peach is more of an artificial Peach flavor, but it vapes with no bite to it. When the Peach is mixed with the Strawberry and Dragonfruit it ends up quite natural to me. The Strawberry mix was my attempt to make a fresh ripe tart Strawberry. The Dragonfruit was added to bolster the Strawberry flavor during the steep, and to blend it with the Peach. The concept is the Peach and Strawberry compete for flavor so that some days you taste the Peach and others the Strawberry.
In this recipe I find that the creamy Custard and Peach are present on the exhale, with the Strawberry lingering on the palate after the vape. Judging my recipe I find it to be a tad dry with an every so slight harshness. The Peach component still needs a little work, and I will be playing around with maybe FA Apricot and FA White Peach - although I have tried White Peach with mixed results in the past. I have concerns that the Strawberry might be a bit much as I am somewhat 'tone' deaf to the flavor at times.
