Alfred's cheesecake with the strawberry combination from my Cheeky Strawberry (https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/184872#cheeky_strawberry_by_lonesomerhodestn).
"A cheeky bird pecks at delicious strawberries . . ." that's the description for this fabric design called Strawberry Thief. This recipe has 2 of Noted's top flavors of the year . . . WF Strawberry Cheesecake and OoO Strawberry Jam. It also has the #1 worst flavor of the year, TFA Strawberry Yogurt. The reason for the TFA Strawberry Yogurt is simple . . . I was reaching for INW Yes We Cheesecake and, instead, grabbed the Strawberry Yogurt. Happy accidents, and what not! This has turned into a spectacular strawberries and milk/cream. I guess the various layers (Lord knows there's a lot going on) cover up whatever note the Noted crew disliked.
Back in "the commercial days" one juice K liked particularly was a strawberry cupcake vape by Blue Dot. I've never tried it myself but I do know how to make a tasty cupcake!
Just an easy & tasty Strawberry Frosted Cupcake. Cap vanilla cupcake with some support all around.
Gonna layer this one from the top down:
Top of the cupcake: Taking the bit of frosting from the cap cupcake and building it up with a nice layer of flv Frosting. Cap I feel almost mixes from the top down. I mean that as in use lower for almost all frosting, start cranking it to get the body of the cupcake.
The Strawberry: a combo of candied strawberry sweet & the thicker slightly jammy RF Strawberry SC. This is my favorite combo of strawberries at this time. Little cap super sweet to brighten these a little bit as well as being a general sweetener. Besides, what kind of sick Nazi wants an unsweetened cupcake?!
Cap Sweet Strawberry will work alright as a sub if you don't have jf. Flv sweetness at double duty for less gunk.
Cupcake body: once again cap is good for this part as well but also needs some help. Bolstering it with tasty jf yellow cake, which also needs a little help. Awwwww....friends helping friends. This is also tasty af with fw yellow cake, same %.
The steep: Good at 3 days when the strawberry sweet calms down & everything starts to come together. Shines at 5+ like most bakeries. Recommend giving it a week however.
Remember feedback good or bad helps us all as mixers especially since comments aren't working :)

Tank tested, tank approved.
Sweetener: Preferred level is 1 chubby gorilla drop of cap ss\10ml to sweeten & help the strawberry. Use your personal favorite sucralose based sweetener @ 2 times recommended % as cap is strong af & the only one I measure by the drop.
Subs\other uses: Many.
Take out the strawberry & replace with your fruit of choice. Leave it out & add .25-.5 cap cake batter or (unsure percent) fw cake batter dip (sugar warning) for a nice plain cupcake.
Sub flv Frosting for la cream cheese icing, NR Vanilla Frosting, Vt\wf buttercream frosting, you get the idea.
Huge thanks to @NordicFlavours for his help & encouragement along with creating the base inspiration for this recipe. His 123 strawberry fluff is extremely tasty & I suggest trying it out for yourself. It really shows the quality of lb strawberry cheesecake.
Onwards to the notes:
General:Wanted a little more cheesecake and a bit of ye olde crust. Oh & I'm stuck on RF Strawberry SC, nice & jammy to go with the cheesecake. A hint of cap ss really helps the strawberry pop imo, 1 drop per 10ml instead of my usual 15.
Cap NY Cheesecake A delicious creamy cheesecake and staple of every mixers toolbox. It really works well with the lb strawberry cheesecake
Speaking of, LB Strawberry Cheesecake is a great flavor. Creamy, some get cakey, (very full flavored) while also blending in a delicious sweet thick candied strawberry.
RF Strawberry SC I'm not a strawberry non-taster, but I've heard this one works for the afflicted as well. & Lucky for them because it's a wonderful jammy Strawberry that kind of turns into a thick gooey strawberry when mixed with the cheesecakes. The super sweet helps to make the strawberry pop out a bit more.
TPA Cheesecake (Graham Crust) & Graham Cracker Clear:To finish off the cheesecake we need a nice graham cracker crust right? Right. This works. GCC is one of those things I bought way too much of as a rookie dumbass so I always try it 1st where applicable & find it actually does a pretty good job here.
Additional: could add a tiny amount of AP(.18 or so) if you want to crunch up the crust even further.
Picking a steep time on this one is hard because I feel it keeps improving over time (at least what I've been able to save). Tasty overnight, but I really recommend giving it 5 days for everything to fully meld together & magic the further than that you can make it last.
Enjoy & Happy Mixing 😎💨💨
Remember, feedback good or bad helps us all become better mixers. With comments currently fubar reviews or even a pm are even more important than ever. 👍
Subs: only thing I can think of is fw\ecx sucralose or flv sweetness. I find cap easier to work with & cleaning coils isn't that big of a deal, but get sweetness & use (so far from what I've experimented with) about 1 5-2x as much as you would cap ss.
I'm already addicted to apple-cinnamon profiles, and after trying oddDrop's Jacker I wanted to make one, but with strawberry milk.
\\Mixed At: 70vg\30pg
\\Steep Time: 5-7 Days
Back in my college days, my friends and I would drive around in the country, listen to Sublime, and do what most college kids do in that situation (cough cough). When we got back to the dorm, I would bust out my secret stash of Apple Jacks and get my strawberry milk out of the mini fridge. This is my best attempt thus far to recreate that moment.
The biggest challenge I had with this recipe? Getting the apple-cinnamon and strawberry to be distinguishable. A lot of batches I would be able to taste one or the other, but never both, and I think I finally cracked it.
Cereal Base: OddDrop was spot on with what CAP Apple Snacks provides, a wonderful dried apple and oat-grain flavor. The only big issue I had with Jacker is what is probably going to get me ostracized, I'm not a fan of CAP Cereal 27. I KNOW, it's crazy. I decided to still use it, but only at 1%, at 1% it still gives us a bit of that crunchy/corn note and still plays well off of the oat-grain notes from a slight increase in CAP Apple Snacks.
A lot of the recipes on here use FA Stark to help with the Apple notes, and they were absolutely right, it really helps the apple in this recipe, but again it was a little too high for me, I was almost getting a bit of a watery apple juice note at 1%. At 0.66% it helps round it out a bit more.
To get our cinnamon on with our apple, I went with the old classic FLV Rich Cinnamon. You only need 1 drop/30ml and it does the trick. I would wager that you could even drop the strawberry and keep the rest for a bangin Apple Jacks recipe on it's own. Also this gets a surprising boost from RF Strawberry Gelato (more on that later)
Milk Base: I want to give 100% credit to SteamOn's cereal milk base. It is spot on and is both tough enough against other flavors to it stand out, but malleable enough to bend it to my will. If you ever want to start working on a cereal w/milk recipe, SteamOn has got you covered. The only thing I did was round up meringue 0.05% just because I thought it looked weird.
Strawberry: TPA Strawberry Ripe is awesome, but is too "pink" for this profile if that makes sense. INW Shisha Strawberry was a front-runner but I always get this slightly earthy note from it that turns me off in certain recipes unless it's done right (like wh1skeyk1ng's Rhubarb Delight ). I decided to try a couple of new strawberries that I didn't have as much experience with. I really liked the notes I got from RF Strawberry Gelato SC from Tootall's Battered Berry, but in the never ending battle with tasting both apple-cinnamon AND strawberry in this mix it was too weak on it's own, and just increasing it caused the gelato notes to take over the recipe. So I included RF Strawberry SC to help both fruits in this profile. The best part? The slightly-granular note from RF Strawberry Gelato SC helps out our cereal base. It's one of those things where you're not sure why it works but it does.
This Cereal is Sweet: I think this is the first recipe in a while where I would say sweetener is required. I mean, look at the side of a box of Apple Jacks and you'll see why. 12 grams of sugar in 1 CUP, who the hell only eats 1 CUP of cereal for breakfast? Add some strawberry milk and you're on the sugar train to diabetes town. Anyway yes, CAP SS, even just a little like in this one, is needed at times. To really create that store-bought sugar bomb you took off the shelf this recipe needs it.
Epilogue: I swear the longer I write my notes on these the more passionate I get. I hope you like what I probably spent way too long on, and be sure to leave a review as well! I always enjoy hearing constructive criticism and any suggestions people might have. Lastly, be sure to try out the other guy's recipes I linked here, if it weren't for them I don't think I could have gotten this together.
