This is my take on the profile picture for the week. A cookie bar with raspberry jam and cream cheese frosting. VT shisha raspberry is a really good jammy raspberry with a ton of body but it doesn't have any vibrancy or top notes and that is where FA raspberry comes in. Cap Vanilla Cupcake is here to provide some more body and sweetness for the frosting with OOO Vanilla Custard Cheesecake playing the main role in the cream cheese frosting.
Be transfixed by the inviting eyes of the Pander Bear.
Indulge your base desires.

Strawberry - INW Shisha, JF Sweet, and FA Juicy strawberries - jammy, syrupy strawberries.
Cream cheese - INW Yes WE Cheesecake, OOO Vanilla Custard Cheesecake, and HS Italian Cream - sweet, tangy cream cheese.
Pastry - WF Glazed Donut SC and FLV Cinnamon Crunch - sopapilla-esque pastry
An excerpt from Hemingway's short story, The Mercenaries (the spelling oddities are how it was published; I fought my inner-grammarian to leave them as is):
“We’ll rally round the doughnut. The Peruvian doughnut,” mused Graves, disembowelling another cigarette. “Follow the doughnut, my boys, my brave boys. Vive la doughnut. Up with the Peruvian doughnut and down with the chili concarne. A dirty rotten lot those Chillies!”
“What is the doughnut, mon cher Graves?” asked Ricaud, puzzled.
“Make the world safe for the doughnut, the grand old Peruvian doughnut. Don’t give up the doughnut. Remember the doughnut. Peru expects every doughnut to do his duty,” Graves was chanting in a monotone. “Wrap me in the doughnut, my brave boys. No, it doesn’t sound right. It ain’t got something a slogum ought to have. But those Chillies are a rotten lot!”
Reading Hemingway got me to thinking about Key West and doughnuts . . . thus the Key lime doughnut.
The Key Lime Pie/topping components: FA Florida Key Lime, Lime Tahity Cold Pressed, Custard Pi 3.14, OOO Vanilla Custard Cheescake, TFA Cheesecake Graham Crust, and FLV Sweet Coconut.
The doughnut base: WF Glazed Donut SC and Deep Fried Pastry Dough SC.
Mixed 60vg/40 pg and it was good off the shake. 3 days later, and I'm still enjoying it immensely. Will revisit and rework if/when the lime starts to fade. Enjoy!
