Blue raspberry candy with cherry blossom that was made for and inspired by the love of my life. I love her so much and this is just one of the many recipes I want to make for her. Alright, now on to the recipe and it's breakdown.
Well Cuzzin Carl was a simple fellow. He liked to fish, and he was a fan of the simpler things in life. One thing that he always had though, was a flask of his homemade strawberry and banana flavored moonshine handy. This custard is a tribute to Cuzzin Carl and all of the simple things in life.
Now on to the actual description. This is an extremely dark strawberry and banana custard. Simple. But here's where things get really weird. OK, to start off with, I may have been a little bit high when I came up with this one. I did not expect such a seemingly simple, yet complex vape to come from my inebriated brain. I love the extra warmth and hints of cinnamon and caramel that the CAP Graham Cracker gives to the TFA Banana Cream. CAP Vanilla Custard is, of course, a staple at 4%. I also love the combo of the TFA Strawberry and Strawberry Ripe.
Two of my favorite things about living in Florida are going to Disney World, and all of the citrus! This recipe is my take on a dessert that is decidedly Floridian, a Key Lime Pie. This is a simple recipe, one that I was working on for a friend. I think it may need a little bit more key lime, but right now it's pretty good. This is definitely one of my better recipes, in my opinion. The CAP New York Cheesecake was not my first choice for the "filler" of this recipe, but it provides a really nice base for the FA Florida Key Lime to sit on.
Images and Words: An album by Dream Theater that I could listen to all day long. This is my tour de force, my ADV. I have been working on this recipe for about two months now, and I think that I've finally nailed it.
Flavor Profile to Hit: A fresh NY Cheesecake topped with cinnamon glazed blueberries.
FW Blueberry: A very sweet blueberry. This blueberry is bright and fresh. In my opinion, this is the best blueberry to hold up to all of the creamy components of this recipe. FA Bilberry could probably also be used for it's darker blueberry notes, in a super low percentage.
FA Bilberry: This blueberry is a little bit darker than most of the blueberry aromas out there, and it's addition in this recipe would add just a little bit more depth to it's FW cousin. The percentages have to be kept very low when working with this flavor, as it will completely drown out EVERYTHING in a mix.
FLV Rich Cinnamon: I made a 1/10 dilution of this flavoring, but .05 is the percentage for the undiluted concentrate.
CAP NY Cheesecake: The only cheesecake that came to mind during my initial planning phases, and this one is a complete winner! The thickness and mouthfeel are just right, while not completely overpowering the mix with it's sweetness.
TFA Cheesecake (Graham Crust): This is being used to add a little more creaminess and mouthfeel to the CAP NY Cheesecake, as well as add to the graham notes of the TFA Graham Cracker Clear.
CAP Vanilla Custard v1: At just one percent, this flavoring "thickens" up the entire mix. Anybody that knows me, knows that I absolutely love this flavoring, and it fits nicely into the mix.
TFA Graham Cracker Clear: This flavoring, of course, is the base of our beautiful cheesecake. The crust of a cheesecake is something that has to be sweet, buttery, and crunchy. This component hits all of those marks for me, with flying colors.
Many thanks to the members of the DIYorDIE Discord chat for helping me finish this recipe!
This one is my first attempt at a clone of a "premium" e-liquid. The liquid is called "BA-NA-NAS" by Coil Butter. The profile given for their liquid is as follows: A freshly baked snicker doodle infused with ripe banana. I feel like I have come as close to the actual recipe as I can. Here comes the breakdown:
TFA Banana Cream: This banana is creamy enough to hold it's own against the other flavors in this recipe, while being subdued enough to let those other flavors shine through. I also chose this banana over LA Banana Cream, as this has a more authentic banana feel, where LA is more candy like.
FLV Rich Cinnamon: A user by the handle "Drumbtr" on the DIY or DIE Discord chat gave me the idea to make a dilution out of this one. At a 10% dilution in PG, this recipe now sits smoothly into the recipe, and really compliments the cinnamon in the TFA Cinnamon Sugar Cookie.
CAP Sugar Cookie v1: You guys already knew this one was in here. One of my all time favorite flavors, and the absolute best sugar cookie to use as the base in this recipe. It really sits on the palate well and provides the warm bakery notes that this profile is based on.
TFA Cinnamon Sugar Cookie: This flavor is by itself pretty damn tasty, but in this mix, the cinnamon is accented by the FLV Rich Cinnamon. This flavor also really helps to add another layer of that sweet snickerdoodle cookie, and backs up the CAP Sugar Cookie perfectly.
TFA Sweetener: Tbh, CAP Super Sweet would have probably fit better in this recipe, but I only had TFA Sweetener. Sue me, lol. The sweetener really brings out the, welll, sweetness of the other components in this mix. It also helps to add to that, er-hem... "premium" feel.
Hope you guys like this recipe. Your constructive feedback is always well appreciated.
This is a banana creme brulee with a subtle hint of cinnamon. This recipe began as a riff on one of Enyawwreklaw's Live Mixing recipes. I didn't have all of the flavors needed for the recipe. I have also been trying to clone a recipe for a Banana Snickerdoodle Cookie. This recipe was great on it's own, but it didn't quite have that "oomph" that pulled it from the drawing room floor to something that I was ready to release. The addition of the TFA Sweetener gave this recipe exactly what I was looking for. I also added 1 drop per 30 ml of FLV Rich Cinnamon, and there were fireworks going off in my mouth. EDIT The rich cinnamon can be subbed quite effectively with CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl. This recipe is finally to the point where I feel good about releasing it into the community. I would like to ask for any feedback and constructive criticism in the comments section down below. I sincerely hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Pretty good as a shake n' vape, but the vanilla custard really comes out to play after a few days to a week.
