This is a recipe I made after learning that ID10-T had never tried an awesome chocolate cake vape. It's the first official utilization of my cake layer, which is 2.5% WF Angel Cake, 1.5% OOO Corn Bread, and 1% JF Yellow Cake. Then I added LB Lava Cake to bend it into chocolate cake territory, FLV Coconut to add some serious richness and depth to the chocolate note, and finally VT Chocolate Mousse to add the finishing touch of well... chocolate mousse.
Edit: Adjusted FLV Coconut to .25% because Dave was right.
This was supposed to be a collaboration with Concrete River. Unfortunately the only adjustment my first version needed was moving VT Fig from .25% to .75%. If you're a strange person that wants to vape a Fig Newton replica, this is your recipe. As much as Concrete would like to say he had nothing to do with this creation, he was the person that introduced and recommended using VT Red Dates. It's used to fill out the inner dimension of our factory-pressed cookies with fruit paste perfectly. If you're a Newton connoisseur you know they're thicker than a snicker, so I used JF Biscuit, CAP Sugar Cookie, and FA Cookie to get you there. Then I added the AP version of cinnamon with FLV Cinnamon Crunch for the tiniest hint of spice in the background. I know that VT Fig is pretty much black licorice in a bottle, but after steeping at .75% I assure you there's no black licorice in these bars. It's essential for accuracy.
This is the result of a collaboration with Max Savage and originated from an idea that Silky had. Silky recommended that I try FA Passion, FA Papaya, and FA Guava together to scratch my itch for a funky fruit mix. I tried it out, but it wasn't weird enough. So Max Savage and I went through a few iterations to nail down an odd, but delicious combination of flavors. The end result is somewhat of a tropical smoothie, and I really enjoy it.
We started out using Guanabana, but it didn't get along with the profile so it was tossed. Yakima Hops any higher was adding too much bitterness, and CAP Sweet Mango wasn't showing up enough at 3%. My favorite part of this mix is FA Papaya, it adds a wonderful and smooth quality to the vape, and tones down all of the sharper edges of Yakima Hops and Pink Guava. FA Passion adds some nice brightness, and the super sweet makes everything pop.
This was created mostly to combine some of my favorite flavors. When I was working on Cap'n Burgundy's First Mate, I discovered the beautiful pairing of FW Graham Cracker and brown sugar. I opted to go to the source, and use WF Molasses in place of TPA Brown Sugar. Then I added some texture to the back of FW Graham Cracker with FA Cookie to prevent the graham cracker taste from becoming overpowering. It was a lot of dry ingredients, so I finally found a place to use CC Devon Cream. Along with that I used FLV Cream and FLV Milk & Honey to achieve a nice textural balance. FA Maple Syrup is used for the maple and to sweeten the recipe overall. FLV Popcorn has a unique textural component that I wanted to use, and it provides a slight hint of caramel and butter in the background.
I made this one for a friend. It is a recreation of the ever popular combination of Nilla wafers and banana pudding. This version is a bit more exciting than the real thing, because I decided to add some eggy Vanilla Custard richness and actual banana to counter TPA Banana Cream.
VT Banana Custard makes up the authentic banana slices, but it's lacking in the custard department. CAP Vanilla Custard fills in for that with some intense richness and thickens the overall profile. TPA Banana Cream brings the artificial Jello banana pudding flavor, but only enough of it to be present. FLV Vanilla Pudding is where the name comes from. It's a pretty solid creamy pudding flavor that works as a blank canvas here. FA Cookie and VT Pudding base are used to give some Nilla Wafer texture to the experience. Lastly, the meringue is used because the reference picture had whipped cream, and I wanted something that would show up more and prevent the recipe from getting wispy.
This is the result of pitting my least favorite fruit flavor (Grape) against my favorite fruit flavor (Mango). There are two versions of this recipe, one with White Peach at 1%, and the other with FA Apricot (Armenia) at 1%. After gathering some information from test subjects, both need to be included because they're awesome for different reasons. I'm usually not a fan of anything grape flavored, but this makes it work. It is also probably worth a shot if you're not a fan of Mango.
Ahoy! 'tis me latest collaborative project, 'n I had th' pleasure o' workin' wit' a true gentleman 'n a scholar t' get it nailed down. Cap'n Burgundy 'n I 'ave been tryin' out numerous concepts, from th' enigma o' FA Breakfast Cereals t' th' cereal destroyin' FW Hazelnut. Thar were some moments o' pure joy, 'n some moments o' sheer terror (lookin' at ye Fizzy Sherbet). Let's walk th' plank.
FLV Cream 'n OOO Cream/Milky Undertones make up th' cream base fer th' cereal, 'n aye that's all ye needs. FLV Cream be easily one o' me fav'rit flavors, 'tis an awesome cream that I still can nah describe. OOO Cream/Milky Undertones adds some, ye guessed it, milky undertones t' th' vape without bullyin' th' cereal too much. Movin' onto th' yellow, mouth-destroyin' loot pieces. FA Cookie adds some separation from th' cream base 'n all-around great texture t' th' cereal. Cereal 27 be wha' makes up th' yellow puffed corn bits, 'n gives a general "cereal" quality. Brown Sugar was Cap'n Burgundy's trick, hijacked from Breakfast Bowls #1. It adds some dark sweetness 'n makes th' Captain Crunch mighty tasty.
Now 'tis me time t' shine. When we started this adventure, I was in charge o' findin' a TPA Crunchy Berry Soap substitute. In th' words o' th' cap'n hisself, "I bloodhounded it, 'n when ye try it ye'll say, 'That Alfred sure knows wha' he's doin' wit' his schnozz.'" Forest Fruit be th' answer t' th' crunch berry pieces, 'n wit' some brightenin' from Strawberry (ripe) 'n Super Sweet, it beats TPA Crunchy Berry Cereal by nigh-on half a league.
This my first 1-2-3 recipe. The Virginia Tobacco is a sweet, leafy flavor. I used TPA Pear and FLV Apple Filling to bend it into something else entirely. I wouldn't really say this qualifies as a tobacco recipe. It's more of a rustic and light autumnal fruit mix with a hint of cinnamon. The steeping part is up to you. It works as a shake and vape recipe, but FLV tobaccos are known to get better at the two week mark.
The Mixers' Club topic for September was "Back to School", and this was my submission. I wanted to create a fusion of beer and energy drinks to really capture the quintessence of the theme, and I thought this was finished until I read ID10-T's feedback:
Hop infused rhubarb and dragonfruit energy drink is a crazy profile, but i think this just about gets it done. I’ve got like 1,200 flavors and somehow this recipe has two that I don’t have, Green Goblin and Pink Panther, so I was intrigued to try it. It’s cold but not too cold and I’m not sure it’s something I’d want to taste without it being nicely chilled. The green energy drink flavor was never my favorite but it seems to just mostly fill this all out. My favorite thing about it is that after the hit of coolant and in front of this constant backdrop of green stuff I get a progression of flavors, hops, INW dragonfruit, that nifty sort of rhubarb sweetened with red berry juice. All of them intensify with extended vaping like watching a play and getting to know the cast of characters and caring about them so much that the fact that it’s cold in the theater and the curtain is an unnatural neon sticky sweet green isn’t super distracting anymore.
If I could change one thing about this recipe, it’s that the overall flavor is a touch light to me. Normally I appreciate that in that it won’t wear out my palate but this is such an odd combo that I feel like it ought to be LOUD as well as weird. I only tried it in my favorite RDA so this an untested theory, but I have a feeling that if I put it in a shitty subohm tank with prebuilt coils it would taste like cold sweet nothing. I want this to be something that would be plenty of flavor in that sort of setup. I want my face blasted off with these flavors. I don’t want it overdone and throwing up off notes everywhere, but I do want it pushed right up to the limit, just every flavor in here giving me its all. A crazy bold mix for a crazy bold profile, no feather touch stuff, no more Mr. Nice Guy. If I had bought this as a one-shot mixed it at 12%, I’d try it again at 15%. Might wind up regretting it, but I’d at least give it a shot.
After reading this, I knew he understood the vision. So I went back to work and made this thing aggressive, confusing, and obnoxiously loud.. just like it should be. Some of the nuance and layering was destroyed in the process, but that's not what we're here for. I didn't want to add an excessive amount of neon green "Monster" flavor, so I just added 1% to the original formula. I turned the Fizzy Sherbet up to 4% from 1.25%, which is what really makes this thing fight back. Yakima Hops went from 1.5% to 2% to add some bite. Anything past 1.5% with Pitaya made the thing too floral, so that was as far as I could take it from 1%. Finally, the most difficult thing to figure out was Pink Panther. It really knows how to dominate a mix so I could only take it up to .6% from .5% without getting too weird. It adds just the right amount of rhubarb/red currant without covering up everything else.
