If you like Sugar Cookies..... you have got to try these. Inspired by a mixer over on ELR known as JGrim. He mde a simple 4 flavor mix back in '16. I have vaped this for 3 years. Over that time I have tinkered with one aspect or another and now this recipe is just humming. Simply delicious. Most of the flavors are self explanatory but I will explain, or at least try to....
Almond; Because almond flavor in Sugar Cookies is amazing
Almond Cookie; Because it ups the almond aspect and keeps the Cookie balance
Marzipan; Because it enhances the almond flavor giving it depth without affecting the overall profile
Classic Sponge Cake; Originally I usedFW Yellow Cake, MB Sponge cake is sooo good and enhances the bakery notes here
Hard Crack Toffee; Very strong flvor, added here @ .15 to give this that "Oven Baked" edge..
Sugar Cookie; @ 7.5 to get all I can from this Flavor
Vienna Cream; @ 3.5 it turns out amazing

This can be vaped right away, but after 5 days the Vienna Cream and Almond settle in and it only gets so much better....
If you like Sugar Cookies, ..... have at it, you will taste the goodness right off (SNV) . Make enough though, you will want to taste this after a week........enjoy.

P.S. I almost forgot, ... Sweetener! I add .5 Super Sweet, sometimes .25... It is at your discretion.

P.S.S. Substitutions; MB Classic Spnge Cake can be subbed with 3% FW or JF Yellow Cake.
INW Marzipan can be subbed with .35 FA Marzipan ,
Hard Crack Toffee; can be taken out but those slight toasty edge notes wont be there...

Mocha Cappuccino.

Learned from the chocolate guru himself, Folkart. Mixed on SaturDIY with Fresh03

This e-liquid was a thing for me time ago and since then i tried to make a remix as close as possible but playing with coffee concentrates makes you hate mixing.
Now i think i got close enough to share it.

Salted Caramel Machiatto has a top heavy caramel/ Butterscotch note, bright and dark at the same time followed by a butter milky note and a lot of sweetener.. A LOT!! with a subtle coffee note lingering through the vape.

I have been trying a lot of coffee concentrates to find the exact one and finally realised that VTA Hard Crack Toffee is the coffee note in this e-juice and is not an actual coffee concentrate( this shit happens so much).

Coffee is barely noticeable in the original and so in this mix,
add 0.25% at a time to reach your own sweet spot. I personally like it more at 2-2.25% but trying to get close to the original 1.75% is enough.

They call for salted caramel but i get a Butterscotch sour tangyness with some bright Salted Caramel so thats what i did. I think the caramel note is better here than in the original while being a bit thicker and richer( not a bad thing though).

For the Milky Buttery Cream part im pretty sure its just VTA Coffee Milk Froth as its pretty subtle but noticeable and this flavour, with just a touch of it , delivers a nice rich butter creamy feeling.

The sweetness in this juice is nearly offensive for me now.. but back in the day i vaped just commercial juice and didn't think it was that high.

0.75% super sweet it quite spot on for my mix but i think 1% or even higher is used in the original helping that bitter/sour note i get that comes from super sweet.
So adjust to taste but 0.75%-1% is where you get closer to the original.

Additional notes:

You can SNV as nothing needs to steep out or feels harsh or rough. I think its pretty tasty but after a week it gets better.

I may tweak some % as steeps a bit more so keep in mind this is not a 100% finished recipe.

Smoked Butterscotch Latte kind of what starbucks makes.

VTA Coffee Milk Froth, Caffe Latte and Hard Crack Toffee each of them have subtle coffee notes; with them three we get that slight coffee note you get in this type of coffees.
Also each of of them add their own qualities, heavy delicious rich cream and caramel.

For the Butterscotch part 3% FW Butterscotch Ripple with 0.5% FLV Smoked Butterscotch and the added dark caramel/coffee notes from VTA's concenrates is all you need.
Now our Smoked Butterscotch blend is ready.

Sweetness in this beverages is quite high so if you like sweet commercial style vapes as well as highly sweetened coffee drinks 0.75% super sweet also works really well, but i think 0.5% is enough.

How does only 1 percent of flavor concentrate deliver this much flavor?
Wow!

This is "The Chosen One"

Over the years I have been mixing I have come to undertsand that there isn't a percentage rule as such when it comes to DIY eLiquid creation.
After seeing a peer release a "1 percenter" recipe recently I was inspired to try my luck at one my self.

I began with the thought of trying to chase a basic Strawberries and cream and as usual got side tracked as a picture went past my eyes of a toffee dipped strawberry lol. So I "extra" challenged myself to bring that into this recipe as well.

This is how the micro evolution of how "The Chosen One" was created.

There is only one strawberry I know of that will work at this low %.
Flavorah Alpine Strawberry - IMO a maximum point is 0.2% and after a couple of days you get a nice wild strawberry flavor but past that point of 0.2% I get green dirt, but it works here well.

That Toffee is more like a toffee you would experience on a toffee apple. (no apple notes though).
Vape Train Hard Crack Toffee - is excellent in giving that glossy toffee mouthfeel & sweetness but it's temperamental and IMO only works this low for this application and does well.

The Cream
The combination of Flavorah Sweet Coconut and Flavorah Sweet Cream not only helps this profile with a lovely creaminess but also helps with the body and textual mouthfeel of this overall vape. This is not coconut heavy at all rather it contrasts the texture of the strawberry and helps the creaminess here very well.

You could add sweetener if you like but I enjoy the sweet authenticity of the strawberry in this and don't want to risk muting out the cream.

A lovely efficient recipe, so simple yet so complex in flavor at only just a total of 1% of flavoring.

Steep time 3 days (ok off the shake)

Tested on a Wotofo Recurve RDA 0.2ohm Alien Single SST coil at 60w

Enjoy!
I hope you enjoy this just as much as I enjoyed creating this recipe, but let me know what you thought in the comments below.

Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!

Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

My first experience with Hard Crack Toffee, it smells super potent so starting at 1, LB ice cream is a short steep and very good imo, boosted the vanilla with Holy Vanilla and give the cream a leg up with the FA, added CCGC as an after thought as I thought it needed a touch of crunch, Tastes good off the shake... hopefully it doesn't get too heavy 😏

This is a hot YUMMY mess - and named after a phrase coined by the most fabulous @leilani

On the inhale you get a creamy sweet caramel ice cream that transitions to caramel popcorn in the middle and finishes with a toffee and graham cracker note.
Best on an RDA at 60 - 65 wattts
Made for Mixin in the kitchen popcorn episode

Butterschotch ripple and Creme Brulee create a thick creamy caramel ripple ice cream. VT creme brulee is a really nice flavor it has less burnt dark brown sugar than other brulees and leans more toward a caramel the creme is also less eggy. FW butterscotch ripple is more of an ice cream and works well here

kettle corn* AP and caramel popcorn create that cracker jack type of popcorn I wanted here . caramel popcorn is really bringing the nut notes with some darker sweetness and is light on the popcorn. The kettle corn brings more of a buttery caramel note. AP is used for more of that popcorn texture and supports the kettle corn

toffee is needed to add some depth and supports the finish in this mix along with graham cracker

I was hoping to get this done with just one concentrate but taking the hard cracked toffee too high resulted in too much coffee, I tried FW salted caramel and it was too rough by the time I got it high enough for the same caramel taste so I chose chefs choice/CCW and it worked out perfectly, there was a slight fresh cream/milk note in the original so I added 1% fresh cream. The 1st revision I made had 2% super sweet in it but the sweetness was at the front and in the original it came after the coffee/caramel so I reduced the super sweet to 0.75 and added the marshmallow which seems to layer the sweetener in the same way as the original does. This is 95% there if I fucked with the %’s a bit more I could get it 100% but it would be fiddly and so much of this clone/remix game comes down to perception and you can’t please everyone but I’m happy enough to put it out there and say “can you do better?” :)

I know there is probably some difference in concentrates between the original and the remix but it’s that close why be picky 😆

Stixx Mixx Butter Rum Cavendish is one of my favorite NET’s. I used this to create a delicious tobacco dessert vape. It has a great bite free taste. It tastes of Butter Rum and Jamaican Rum.

To help with the dessert feel, I used Holy Holy Grail, an RY4 Type concentrate. Flv Toffee really helps to build on the toffee flavor, but the Vape Train Hard Crack Toffee really gives that extra bite to the caramel and toffee combination, it gives the taste of real hard toffee. The Vape Train Devon Cream has this warm butter note that goes perfectly with Caramel and Toffee. This really helps blend all the flavors together. To top it off, FW Butter Pecan adds the extra delicious flavor.

This is delicious after the shake, but for optimal taste, a week steep would be best because of the Devon Cream.
Optional: add .25 to .5% of AP, this will help bring more of the nuttiness notes out.
Enjoy

Pandan is an edible plant that is used widely in South Asian cooking to give a fragrance to sweet dishes in particular, and often added to rice as well. (maybe a sticky rice!). Pandan is also often used with nuts and coconut and in this recipe plays with the coconut and toffees to make a nice dessert. The coconut is quite subtle here. If cooling try 0.2% WS23 and 0.2% polar blast together for inhale and exhale cooling.
