I was a little disappointed in the flavor I got from WF Butter Pecan Pie, and I, like ID10-T, knew something must be done to fix it. While keeping the original mix, I strongly felt that it still wasn't finished, even though it started out as a 1-2-3 recipe. It's too good to limit to just these three flavors. After trying the original, it just wasn't satisfying to me and felt it needed to be sweeter to properly tickle my palette. There was simply not enough caramel in this, so I'm working on fixing it and making it something special.
I added FW Caramel Candy after trying the original and was immediately impressed with the results. But I think I can do even better. The missing sweetness is now mostly present. I'm going to focus on complimentary sweeteners, and next is FW Caramel (salted) and TPA Brown Sugar. This should brighten things up a little.
WF Butter Pecan Pie is yummy, but its name drove me nuts and I had to try to "fix" it. It just tastes like butter pecan ice cream minus all of the ice cream. Or, something that could pass for the top part of the pie, with all the baked pecans, cooked sugar sweetness, and extra butter. But where's the eggy goopy inside? Why does it have "pie" in the name when I'm not getting even a hint of crust. FA Apple Pie takes some time to come out but I'm only getting the hint of pie crust I wanted from it at 1%, no apple or other fruit, no apple pie spice. INW Custard fills it out wonderfully. Three other versions didn't work the way I wanted them to. FA Custard Premium 2% was enough to take over and turn it into a custard recipe. Lovely, but off-topic. Not a pie. CAP Vanilla Custard 2% fit the pie profile and tasted good but that unmistakable Capella vanilla stuck out, calling too much attention to itself in an annoying way. The INW Creme Brulee 2% that someone suggested gave it a nice sweetness but wasn't custardy enough for a pie filling and tasted a little burnt.
I'll start off by explaining the guava paste or guava cheese layer, more commonly known here in Brazil as "goiabada". Ever since I got into DIY, I dreamed of a good guava concentrate! As it is pretty difficult to get flavorings from various brands down here, my first experience with any type of guava was pretty disappointing, I believe everyone can guess the brand which I'm talking about. Then, my second guava type flavor was Sweet Guava from Capella, I'll be honest here and say that this flavoring is far from what a real pink-centered guava tastes like, it is more of a very light watered down guava juice.
Fast forward to early December 2019 when I got Pink Guava in the mail. As soon as took the cap off and took a whiff, I fell in love with it! I had finally gotten that real, ripe guava smell. One of my favorite parts of the guava is the skin, which brings a tartness that balances so well with the sweet, creamy inside of it, and I gotta say, Pink Guava brings all of this to the table, except for the extreme sweetness that is part of that delicious pink, redish center.
Alright, enough with the small talk, let's get down to business!
WF Banana Pureé/TPA Brown Sugar/VT Glazed Strawberries/FLV Pink Guava/CAP Sweet Guava - All these make the Guava Paste layer, each playing its role here to bring the perfect "goiabada". The banana pureé and glazed strawberries bring both the creaminess and the glazed/jammy feeling of the cooked up guava. The brown sugar here is pretty obvious, contributing to the sweetness as well as the "cooked" sugar. And then comes the beauty of the guavas, pink guava is an almost complete guava and sweet guava does a wonderful job completing it with its inherent sweetness and lighter body.
Ok, after I developed the perfect guava paste layer, I needed the Perfect Cheesecake, and that's where the @Developed team came in and solved all my previous cheesecake attempts. It really is the perfect cheesecake flavor and with the guava paste on top if, I finally nailed my favorite dessert in vape form!
I recommend making a one-shot of this guava paste to use it in other recipes that might call for something of the sort. Corn bread is actually really good with it and I'm working on another recipe to balance both flavors appropriately.
If you read this huge text, I appreciate the time. Now, if you just scrolled down and got down here just to see the recipe, mix this up ASAP and make sure to leave a feedback!
This took me awhile to develop because I tried to find the balance between the coffee flavour in a fluffy cake. This is my adaptation for coffee cake I hope you enjoy it also shoutout to my dude @VG_Bonhoeffer for the help he provided
Rest In Peace HHGv1.
This is a spin off of our (@isuamadog and I) first “take something that shouldn’t be with HHG RY4 and put them together” recipe. Instead of taking the custard route we took the cheesecake route. We took Alfred’s Cheesecake Trinity and the main components of Lime Ar Why Fore and stuck them together and it turned out fantastic!
Rest In Peace HHGv1.
@isuamadog and I wanted to take RY4 and something that shouldn’t belong with RY4 and make it work. That brought us to VT Shisha Lime and INW Custard. A little TFA Brown Sugar to bolster the RY4 and a little Cap Vanilla Whipped Cream to add some sweet fluff on top. It just works, trust us!
I quite like my trials on diy. But this was the first one that really convinced my boyfriend, witch is why I call it “daddy’s”.
I started off using tpa hazelnut, but after a good steep I realized the reality of FW would fit better the profile. Feel free to use TPA’s without the hazel groove (changes completely, but works well).
I feel it well blended only after a month of steeping, despite after two weeks is already vapeable. Don’t dare trying before... there’s a metallic thing coming out from the hazels that creeps me out.
Hope you enjoy :)
Feel free to comment
Lots of love and flavor <3
