I am in the process of moving so the only flavors I had handy to me are the ones that I have ordered since getting everything packed up. Now that I have explained why I used the flavors, allow me to explain what roles they play in this recipe.
I was going for a doughnut with toasted coconut powdered sugar topping and filled with raspberry cream.
I have been eager to try zeppola for several weeks now and it was torture to keep reading all the raving about it and not having got to try it myself. At 4% Zeppola makes the doughnut without a question. Not overly yeasty, sweet and bready with a hint of cinnamon and powdered sugar.
Anyone that knows me also knows that there is no other raspberry to consider than INW raspberry molina and at 1% it is noticeable but not overbearing. The only strawberry I had to compliment the raspberry was tpa organic strawberry which if I recall right is a vg based flavor. I overshot the median recommended percentage of the tpa organic strawberry due to the vg base but not too much as its only supposed to compliment the raspberry.
Zeppola already has a powdered sugar hint to it but I was worried that note would likely be drowned out by the cream choices I went with for the filling. I am new to OOO flavors but it was rumored that their powdered sugar might be used for the powdered sugar note that my favorite "premium" raspberry doughnut juice is (Hit That Juice Razzhole). 1% seemed a safe note as a smell test of it wasn't really a sweet aroma as I expected but definitely had an alcohol note.
OOO toasted coconut is also a new one for me and based on smell alone I knew I should keep the % low as I got the faintest sour note on the sniff test.
I love CAPs vanilla whipped cream as it is completely true to its title, real whipped cream with just the right amount of vanilla. I used it at 2% as its a lighter "fluffier" type flavor and I didn't want the custard notes I chose to make it too heavy in the cream department (if that makes any sense?).
I m also new to WF but all of their flavors have been very well accepted so I got the few that most suited my usual mixes. The caramel butter at 1% and the vanilla ruyan custard at 2% just create this nice sweet caramel type custard with a nice balanced vanilla note and the combo just edges on buttery/greasy.
Right after a shake and vape you get the dryness of the powdered sugar and the raspberry but the dryness that the powdered sugar creates seems to dry out/hide the cream notes and rather than that moist doughiness that you expect from a doughnut its more of a average cake type taste. I actually think it's the combo of the toasted coconut and powdered sugar that are making it "dry" initially.
This is going to require a steep of at least 2 weeks I would say to allow the custard and creams to wet down the powdered sugar note. By no means it is a bad vape at all but I can tell right off the bat that a steep is going to be necessary for this in its current form.
BTW vaping this max vg 3mg nude nicotine salts smooth at 20 watts and 480*F with fused ss clapton (28g cores 38g wrap 3mm coil 7 wrap) on the hadaly at .9ohm.
This entry is a twist on two classic recipes combined into one, strawberry's and cream and banana's and cream, but the twist is.. There was never any banana! And Bruce Willis was dead the whole time!
I had never played with TFA Quince until recently, and realized its potential with the correct strawberry as it has a smooth and slightly over sweet flavor. The TFA Organic Strawberry was my first thought as it has a slightly tart taste to it that compliments and lightly tones down the Quince while adding light notes of banana while the INW Custard leaves a creamed distinct finish.
sub 4% cap ny cheesecake or 4% tpa cheesecake graham crust if you don’t have fw
sub 1% tpa graham cracker clear if you do not have fw
fa custard used for the lemon hint it has that can aid with keeping strawberry from getting drowned out from heavier cream type recipes. fw lemon meringue pie also helps to add to the texture and sweetness while assisting the strawberry brightness. I am so glad I discovered tpa organic strawberry. it is so authentic and paired with tpa strawberry ripe you end up with what has become my favorite strawberry combo. strawberry ripe is my favorite standalone strawberry but unfortunately it has a tendency of getting weaker/muted over time if the percentage used isn’t boosted, especially in custards and creams (hence the combo of it with tpa organic strawberry). tpa dragonfruit used to boost strawberry which was the first flavor enhancement tip I got when I started DIY and I continue to swear by its addition with raspberry and strawberry recipes. tpa vanilla custard I use in nearly everything at 1% as its a fantastic sweetener that goes with everything for my tastes. if you do not yet have cap vanilla whipped cream just get it. it has replaced fa whipped cream not only because I think it tastes better but also because it is very readily available. i like whipped cream on any and all desserts and cap whipped cream gives me that dollop of sweet fluffy dairy goodness.
