Decadent, fresh-baked Gooey Butter Cake straight from gam-gam's oven. Getchya some.
GBC is a St. Louis staple much like cracker crust pizza, toasted raviolis, and culturally segregated racism. It's the preferred weapon of midwestern women looking to mass kill their families via coronary blockage. Confectioner's sugar, yellow cake mix, sugar, eggs, powdered sugar, cream cheese, and more sugar make up this wonderful treat. It's likely the most unhealthy food in existence, which is exactly why it is also the most delicious.. The ol' flavor-health inversion principle. It's science.
FW Yellow Cake is my star. It's so good that it's bad for you (and your coils), the true mark of a great flavoring. 3% gives a strong yellow cake flavor and some grainy texture in this recipe. You can sub JF if you realllllly want to, but double the percentage. It will not be the same at all.
INW Custard mixes in the eggs and takes the cake texture down to a gooey, batter-esque mouthfeel. 1.25% provides density and amplifies the "yellow" part of the cake mix.
LA Cream Cheese Icing is also helping texture. 0.5% stiffens up the gooey texture enough for that gritty, stick-to-your-teeth sweetness. The cream cheese note also fills out the cake mix and custard.
OoO Powdered Sugar is a new flavor to me. Thadentman recommended it, and he was right in doing so. At 1.5%, it does powdered sugar better than meringue or torrone could without altering the flavor too much. You get a touch of that dry, powder texture laying throughout the recipe.
CAP Super Sweet is needed here. If you've had GBC, you know how insanely sweet it is. I'm not going that far with 0.25%, but I wanna get close.
Steeping: It's good fresh, but over the course of a week to two weeks it will come together more. The little bit of Cream Cheese Icing takes some time to do its thing.
Happy mixing. 👽
Threw this together for someone on facebook who requested suggestions for his apple cinnamon danish. The rest is history.
CDS / Cereal 27 / Vanilla swirl - Cinnamon, a bit of grain for the doughnut, vanilla to blend it all together. cereal 27 also has a little bit of a honey note that's useful here.
TFA Dragonfruit / FA Fuji - the dragonfruit should emulsify the Fuji a little bit to make it just that little bit more authentic tasting. This way it's more like you've got chunks of the apple baked in instead of an apple flavored coating. CDS is also somewhat dry, the dragonfruit should improve this.
FA Meringue/ LA CCI - similar to powdered sugar, very useful for inherent sweetness without adding additional flavor. This makes up our Icing. Using CCI is actually cheating. Meringue should make it sweeter and a little more aged compared to the runny icing taste CCI has.
Optional possible additions:
Sugar Cookie - great for bakery notes but I think you'll get most of it out of CDS and Cereal 27. Between .5 and 1%
FW Yellow cake - should boost the donut-ness of the vape without giving much flavor at .25%. more of a feeling than a taste at .25%.
LA Cream Cheese Icing - The perfect addition to any danish. The icing on top, so to speak. I would try this side by side with a mix without it to see how much it changes the recipe. CCI can be very creamy and overtake a recipe fairly quickly. .5 to .75%
This is a flavor profile I chased quite a bit last year but could never get something I was happy with, but revisiting now with more experience I was finally able to get what I I was chasing, a bundt cake with cranberry cooked into it and a orange cream icing. With fall coming up this is one of those classic flavor combo's that I love come this time of year so I was really happy to get this ready for fall this year.
FW Yellow Cake/FLV pound cake
Straight up FW yellow cake is still the best around, and the texture just wouldn't come together perfectly with JF or CAP. You can use JF in the same % if you really want to, but it won't be as good. I love combining the Yellow cake with FLV pound cake for the texture it brings, and that slight off note I've heard some people describe as anise doesn't come off as anise to me, but more so the cooked, caramelized edges of a cake that really makes it stands out and sells the idea of a bundt cake with more cooked surface area.
This is the perfect cranberry to me if you want a cooked cranberry in my mind. It's sweet, mildly juices, and enough tart to still come off as cranberry. It's on odd flavor in that it can get lost easy with some flavors or it can over power others just depending on what it's paired with, but this % brings it to the balance in the cake I was looking for.
TFA orange cream/CAP sweet Tangerine/LA CCI/FLV Frosting
These all come together to make the orange sweet cream icing. The TFA orange cream and CCI is the main base for it, the CCI brings a super sweet icing flavor with just a slight tang, and when mixing with the TFA orange cream get's us almost all the way there, but the TFA alone lacks some of the sweet orange punch from the icing. CAP Sweet tangerine reminds me a lot of an orange juice type flavor, and just a small amount really boosts the orange sweetness like you get making a real icing with sugar and orange juice, then the FLV frosting just bumps up the density of the icing separating it from the cake so instead of getting a creamy cake you get an cake topped with icing and you catch it more on the exhale.
This one needs at least 10 days steeping for the bite of the oranges to calm down and the creams to mingle the way they should, but it really hits strides around 2 weeks.
So what is rainbow sherbet? Traditionally I believe Sherbet, is made with orange, pineapple, lemon, lime, and raspberry Several reasons I didn't go with pineapple or lime. Pineapple and lime, are both highly acidic, and with the already acidic Orange in this recipe, it would have been a real pain in the ass to balance out.
I also believe the sweetness of mango fits the profile much better. I'm fully aware that mango has been Beat to Death, lately but summer is coming to an end, and soon enough we'll be basking in the glory of custards, creams, and bakeries once again, but a fruity ice cream this can be Vaped year round.
FLV mango + LB blue raspberry
FLV mango- is not something I have played around with too much, it has had a lot of great reviews, and has made an appearance in some of the best recipes of the year to date. It seems the downside is it's a little watery, and can take away from the texture of many recipes. I personally did not notice any watering down of this cream base.
Lb blue raspberry - I picked this flavoring for several reasons, for one it does in part a blue flavor, or what my brain perceives as blue because I've eaten way too many Otter Pops in my youth.. On top of on top of that it's a great raspberry flavoring, and the others in my Arsenal just did fit.
TFA sweet raspberry is my go-to but I believe it contains ethyl maltol, which was muting other flavors, and balancing it was becoming problematic.
INW raspberry fit better but is a temperamental concentrate, and tends to overpower everything. I think it could be a suitable replacement if you do not have liquid barns blue raspberry. But 2% is definitely too high I liked it best at .5%.
And that's the list of raspberries I currently own. Would love to hear love any substitutions that work.
For the rest of the flavor notes check out the original recipe. I do have to admit to cheating a little on the Steep time, I had a fully steeped batch of my orange vanilla sherbet, and tossed these flavors on top of that. Hopefully they don't fade too much wall aging. Thank you for reading and please if you mix this up feedback and criticism are very appreciated.
TFA apricot + FW Orange dream Bar
Flavor West dream bar on its own has a great orange flavor. This concentrate separates just a little bit, which leads me to believe, they're using their blood orange in this concentrate. One of the best orange flavoring on the market, but It does have its problems it's extremely zesty, and not very juicy.
I was discussing this problem with shindo on Discord, and I suggested he added apricot, to make more of an orange juice flavor. It just so happened at that time I was working on this recipe and thought what the hell let's give it a shot. Didn't really work as a S & V, tasted like a dreamsicle that had been rolled in Tang.
So I set it aside gave it some time and came back to it after 3 weeks. What a difference time can make the apricot settled down and Blended in with the orange perfectly giving it a juicer flavor. Which is perfect for this profile.
FW Orange dream bar+ LA cream cheese icing + CAP vanilla bean ice cream + FLV marshmallow
Flavor West Orange dream bar, has a fantastic vanilla ice cream base to it. Just lacking a little in texture. To fluff this up FLV marshmallow works wonders. This was one of the tweaks I added to the recipe after a steep and a little research big shout-out to fear and bloody Mingo sherbert.
One of the great things about this hobby is you don't have to know everything, and there are a ton talented mixers, whose experience and flavor notes can be a fantastic resource for recipe development.
I decided to add CAP vanilla bean ice cream to the mix, it has a much stronger vanilla flavor, and a completely different ice cream flavor, if I had to describe it in three words I would say battery and smooth.
LA cream cheese icing sweetums up the profile and adds a smooth, and slightly malty cream cheese accent.
Cap super sweet
Okay I'll admit it I was one of those people that avoided sweeteners like the plague. Once I got over my aversion to sweetener, and realized when used in small percentages, they can really help brighten a recipe. And that's exactly what it does here brightens up the orange and vanilla making for a very enjoyable vape.
I'm going to assume most of you don't have flavor West Orange dream bar in Your Arsenal. If that's the case cap orange creamsicle should do the trick. I have both and they are very similar flavorings.
On the chance you don't have either I am 98% sure orange dream bar, is simply blood orange, and vanilla bean ice cream put together into one flavor. I almost rework the recipe knowing that I could recreate this concentrate out of flavorings everybody should have.
I would use flavor West vanilla bean ice cream, around 4% and flavor West blood orange, between .5% and 1%. These are completely substitutions, and would love to hear feedback from anybody who tries them.
Cap vanilla bean ice cream could be subbed out for HS French vanilla ice cream.
FLV marshmallow should be subbed out for fa marshmallow I would bring it up a quarter of a percent.
Steep time is a must for this one as an S&V it's not unvapable, but everything is very separate, and needs time to come together.
Now if you're impatient like me and three weeks is just too long, one drop MTS Vape wizard / 10 mL should speed up the process.
Again completely untested, but in my experience this additive can work wonders at blending flavors together.
This is one of those recipes that has evolved from an attempt at one thing into something else. First it was to be a dream bar recipe using flavor West dream bar as the base. After a good step realized with a few tweeks would make an excellent sherbert recipe. hope you enjoy if you mix it up thank you and please leave some feedback.
This was not meant to be Zebra Cakes.
About 7 months ago I was trying to create different recipe and I come up with this delicious recipe. I have never tried zebra cake, couple of friends try this recipe they said this tastes like zebra cake that they sell in stores. Since I create this recipe, I only use this juice and I hope you guys enjoy it as I do.
You can mix and vape right away but I suggest lease 4 day steeping more you steep it gets much better flavors.
