Ever since I started vaping I've been fascinated by TFA Pistachio, the smell is just amazing, but I have never been able to find a recipe with a satisfying strong pistachio flavor. I have done countless bad attempts trying to nail down the Pistachio/RY4 combo (made famous by Charlie Noble), but almost all of them have ended up in the sink.
I did however have an epiphany when the legendary @shyndo released his recipe for his "Karl Custard" oneshot, where he not only uses TFA Pistachio at 8%, but also wrote an incdedibly helpful note on how to tackle the sharpness that such a high percentage of that flavour brings.
As I did not possess the flavors he is using, I started making my own version with 8% TFA Pistachio as a starting point, and with his notes as help. I also got some very encouraging words from him on the DYI_eJuice discord: "dont be afraid to push shit just because some pretentious bastard tells you he gets "off notes"".
So here I am. PUSHING!
TFA Pistachio: I set out to copy Shyndo by using this at 8%, to really bring that powerful yet creamy pistachio note.
TFA RY4 Double: At 4% it is just enough to force mute the heavy pistachio note to a perfect level, while bringing that lovely caramel tobacco note to the mix.
DFS Holy Vanilla: Creamy eggy wonderful vanilla. At 2% this also helps take the edge off the pistachio, but mainly blends it together to a lovely vanilla pistachio cream that you just want to eat out of a spoon.
FLV Milk & Honey: I would say this is optional, but I think it brings a complexity to the whole mix with that dark sweetness that works very well with the pistachio and tobacco notes.
Again I just have to thank @shyndo, who not only came up with this amazing recipe (Karl Custard), but also went out of his way to answer my questions and gave me invaluable advice on how to develop recipes. So please make sure to check out his Karl Kustard
Regarding steeping, this only gets better the longer it steeps. After a month this is incredibly tasty and the pistachio has blended perfectly with the rest.
If you want to add more tobacco flavor, don't add more RY4, but instead add @Fear 's Cardinal combo: 0.25% FLV Kentucky Blend and 0.75% FLV Red Burley.
TFA RY4D can be swapped for DFS Holy Grail RY4 at 7%, if you want you can also lower DFS Holy Vanilla slightly to make up for the extra cream that the Holy Grail brings.
Octarine, also known as the Colour of Magic or the King Colour. It is visible only to wizards and cats. It is generally described as a sort of greenish purple yellow colour. The only time non-wizards can see it is when they close their eyes; the bursts of color are octarine.
This recipie was inspired by @foment_life, who wisely said "I do love the idea of just toying around with a bunch of things that are just individually tasty and seeing what shakes out in the end."
Well, this is the result of that.
A thick creamy Pistachio Pudding with the right amount of sweetness.
Let's get the easiest stuff out of the way. I chose EM as my sweetener because it tends to thicken custards/puddings in addition to providing sweetness.
The pistachio portion of my pudding is formed with FA Almond, INW Marzipan, and of course TFA Pistachio. I purposely did NOT use FA Marzipan, as INW's version provides a more creamy feel.
Our 'pudding' base is formed with both FLV Vanilla Pudding and INW Shisha Vanilla. The INW SV adds a slight boost to the vanilla pudding which was very useful in this recipe.
STEEP: 9 DAYS(steeping with this particular mix is a must!)

The recipe for my Chefs Flavours one shot. Sorry I've been a bit late releasing these! As per the link: https://chefsflavours.co.uk/karl-custard-30ml-shyndo/ this is pistachio with aromatic ruyan custard and a spicy vanilla brown sugar finish. Basically my own loveletter to the pistachio ry4 profile just done a little differently. Using such a large amount of tpa pistachio on top of brown sugar can be quite sharp. Usually you would use your typical ry4 to force mute this a bit but WF vanilla Ruyan Custard lacks the "ethyl maltol mixing everything together" quality. So we use heaps of vanilla swirl to calm down the sharp edges and fill out the volume a bit. The star to me is actually the WF vanilla ruyan custard in that it's the only ry4 I've had that has such a distinctive "layer" to it. It stands out on its own and in its own place in the vape where something like tpa ry4 double would just BE the whole vape in combination with whatever flavors you use.
Well balanced smooth pistachio/apricot cotton candy with zero throat hit.
Firstly, the only cotton candy concentrate I could see used here is PUR Cotton Candy. This is because(unlike other brands) this is a smooth/strong flavoring with little to no throat hit. In addition, Purilum's CC doesn't taste muted 2-3 hits in, as has been my personal experience with other brands. This flavoring is truly a hidden gem.
I included CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream strictly for mouthfeel.
My pistachio layer contains TFA Pistachio(candy-like), FA Marzipan(more candy-like than INW) & FA Almond. I dont recommend subbing INW Marzipan here due to it being more creamy(cotton candy isn't creamy) and more 'cherry' tasting. FA Marzipan isn't creamy, and is more of a candied almond flavor(which benefits pistachio greatly).
FA Apricot(Armenia) was the best choice for my light fruity layer due to its' cooked/jammy quality. I wanted to keep this layer lighter than the cotton candy & pistachio layers so that it feels like a complementing accent to the pistachio. And I think at this percentage, this was achieved really well. FA Apricot also adds a "wet" quality to the overall mix to avoid dryness, as is often experienced with other cotton candy mixes.
FLV Sweetness was added because cotton candy is all sugar. This sweetener will achieve our desired effect without adding harshness, muting or coil-gunking properties. It will also taste more natural than other sweeteners. CAP SS will make it sickeningly sweet, EM(and Sugar Daddy) will mute the fuck out of this mix.
Please don't use this recipe for commercial gain. Thank you
Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Enjoy chasing the Lepershawn!
The Irish make it queer without me having to look too far. Enjoy the pistachio, the lucky marshmallow, and the butter rainbow cookie all at once!
To be fair, this thing is a monster, but I'll try to explain the idea. I know it looks like I through a lot of stuff together and got fairyfied, but there's a logic to the madness.
FA Marshmallow/FA Meringue/ TPA Lucky Leprechaun = That your marshmallow fluff. FA Marshmallow is my favorite marshmallow and I also find that it fades the least. TPA lucky Leprechaun is a marshmallow cereal and I think the dryness of it works well to support the pistachio and sobber up the cookie.
WF Almond Cookie/TPA Pistachio/FLV Pudding = that's your pistachio pudding, and if you want this thing to taste like pistachio, don't hesitate to go nuts! WF Almond Cookie also supports the rainbow cookie deal in this mess.
CAP Sugar Cookie/CAP Buttercream = That's your rainbow buttery cookie that liaise decently with the pudding and the marshmallow.
And there you have it, my March madness. Oh and steep it, it's absolutely weird on the shake.
Enjoy, be queer & vape on!

Posting this because I mixed up TamVapes Goo In My Butter Cake but with a few swaps. I initially thought they were errors but realized, I completely bastardized the original. TamVapes created the base ultimately for this. https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/119884#goo_in_my_butter_cake_by_tamvapes
On to the Creamy Nut Cake -
Since I am obsessed with vanillas and creams, I cannot stop vaping this.
I had been searching for a couple of years for an elevated but more calm use for Cake Batter Dip and a way to make it work with TPA Pistachio. FW Salted Caramel is my go-to caramel because on a couple of my mesh tanks I actually get the salty sweet. I know, I know, you don't get salt in a vape - I beg to differ. I might be hallucinating it but either way, in at least 2 applications the saltiness of the FW Caramel (Salted) comes through on the exhale. I don't like sugar lips (don't come for me on the Yellow Cake) but salty lips - all day errday!
I am still a fan of FW Yellow Cake but I would imagine WF Angel Cake would suffice in this recipe at 2%.
The FW Vanilla Butternut brings the recipe together and gives an overall vanilla back to the fluffy layers in this recipe.
