So this is it. After over 2 years of trying every strawberry/cream/custard/cookie type combo I could come up with I have arrived at my destination!
Meet "Custard's Last Stand", my final achievement.
As with all great achievements, I rode the coattails of those before me, biting at the heels of their combined knowledge. Most important here is the "Daveberry Trinity" by ID10-T.
Sweet, sticky strawberry from the "Trinity" tops a wonderful vanilla custard made easy with TFA Vanilla Custard 2 & INW Custard, all in a light crispy pastry shell from JF Biscuit and WF Sugar Cone.
Tastes great right after the shake, however after a week is when it starts to really shine. Best liquid I have ever tried, hands down.
apple pie kitkat. Saw this pic as posted on the mixenvixens fb page by a member and just had to have a crack at it. Also perfect for the Developed challenge ;)
I love ID10Ts GTKK2019 and took some notes from him here but wanted it to be different enough to be my own thing.
I discovered the wf combo of sugar cone and crispy wafer awhile ago and its so damn good i had to try it in my version of a kitkat. Its crispy and sweet and perfect for this.
Wf white fudge and mb white chocolate paired together makes for a phenomenal WC note comparable or better than the fw/flv combo in my honest, humble opinion lol. Its my latest favorite go to. Discovered it while playing around with a WC snickers recipe I'm stuck on.
Apple filling is an OBVIOUS choice here. I'm sure the real chocolate bar has this sort of a vibe vs. fresh apples lol
WF caramel rice crispy treats here is my secret weapon. This is my version of what i think this could taste like, not a spot on representation of the actuality of what the professional chocolateeres do.....so here, this adds to the overall experience. Caramel hides well behind WC so i used this higher at 2% but it should build right into the mix and just boost things up another level.
I kept the sweetener low at first because of some of these flavors being sweet on their own.
Gonna let this sit a week before i even touch it. Edit* i lied I tried it lol apple pie was toooo overbearing at 1.25% so i realized quickly it needs to be way more in the back and balanced better. .75% hit much closer to the mark for me, I'm gonna let this one sit now, im very hopeful.
This one is based on ooooNaSuGamisoooo's Vanilla Cream Wafer wafer stone, but with a different filling. I really liked the vanilla wafer, and while I was working on a strawberry yoghurt recipe I thought why not combine them?
The wafer: WF Crispy Wafer SC + WF Sugar Cone SC + INW Biscuit. This stone is based on a slightly higher than usual percent of WF Crispy Wafer, which gives a thin and really crispy wafer. Adding WF Sugar Cone SC makes the wafer a little bit fluffier, while still mantaining the crispiness, and the INW Biscuit makes the whole wafer stone seem more prominent and robust.
The Yoghurt: Cap Creamy Yogurt + FW Yogurt + VT Sweet Cream is one of my favourite yoghurt combinations, and usually works with most fruit toppings. The low percentages are not able to completely create a nice bodied yoghurt, but for this recipe i kept them low so that the yoghurt doesnt overpower the wafer. VT Yoghurt Drink was added because I find the lemony notes to greatly accompany strawberries, giving a great sweet-n-sour taste.
The Strawberry: I wanted a sweet, slightly artificial strawberry that is incorporated in the yoghurt, and not a topping. For these reasons I picked the TPA Strawberry + JF Sweet Strawberry + INW Shisha Strawberry combo, which feels a little "dark" for a strawberry, but is tasty and syropy and worked out great.
Because of the not so bright strawberry combo, a hefty amound of Super Sweet is needed, adjust to taste but I wouldn't reccomend less than 0.4%.
