Was sitting around one day thinking about some of the tobacco's my grandfather used to smoke in his pipe as a kid. I remember cherry and blueberry specifically. So I wanted to create that idea of a fruity tobacco in a vape. I went blueberry because it can be sticky and sweet and yet have a darkness and richness that would be enhanced with the tobacco. This is really one of my first start to finish recipes building on each flavor. I also worked in layers to source out the combinations that worked. You will get a deep dark blueberry on the inhale and main note, riding on a body of RY4 and custard with a nice tobacco finish.
The first experiment was the RY4C (Ruyan Caramel Custard Tobacco) I mixed Holy Holy V1 (and V2 - both work if you don't have any OG left) and Ruyan Custard and was blown away by how well these two play off each other. That layer by itself is a great vape. They create a really well balanced Tobacco, graham, caramel custard. It is dark and yet kind of dreamy to vape and linger in the sinuses.
Next was the Blueberry Juicy and Gummy Candy - I remember Wayne or Noted - somewhere that Blueberry Juicy was a decent stand alone blueberry... but when I tested it... it was juice but not really "sticky" enough, so I added the Gummy Candy and really love how they play off each other. It has a great richness that plays well with the above base layer.
Lastly, I have been using FLV sweetness a lot lately - but I also made batches with Super Sweet and no sweetener. It really needs the sweetener to pull back the tartness of the berry and also it helps the overall quality of the texture. I actually prefer the Sweetness over the SS in this recipe as it supported the flavor better in the steep.

This was built for the Developed TFA Challenge. I wanted to create a cooked berry cupcake with a custard icing.
I used the Raspberry, Ripe Strawberry and Blueberry to create a more obscure, cooked berry note - it is richer and evolves in the vape on certain hits you get this bending more strawberry and raspberry. Still playing with this idea. Looking for thoughts on this.
The other part of the recipe - the bakery base. I made solo using Vanilla Custard v2 when I first got it. I have put Vanilla Cupcake and Frosted Donut together before. I threw in a dash of caramel to marry the bakery and fruit with that sugary edge note.
Overall, I am very happy with this, I do wonder if a dash of VBIC or Cheesecake would not cement this all with a little heavier mouth feel. But I wanted to really feature the bakery and not lose it in the cream (fearing it become a berry custard only).
Another recipe taking layers and putting them together... This started out as a test of the Strawberry Trinity and was then turned into a lovely ice cream. Super Smooth and really smack you in the face Strawberry. This vape only lasted a few days and was gone. The Ice Cream is a pretty standard Ice Cream layer I use in a lot of recipes and backs up this berry really nicely. It is all Strawberry on the inhale, smooth thick and creamy mouth feel - followed by a hint of cream on the exhale. Already mixed up more of this and is steeping away in a dark corner. Let me know what you think ... this was my first recipe with ID10T's trinity mix ... love is an understatement.
This is pretty easy to decode if you have spent a lot of time here or on DIYorDIE. I took Wayne's Cheesecake layer and added the Blueberry Trinity. This juice is so fricken amazing. Blueberry Cheesecake was one of my earliest flavors when I quit smoking. I had searched and tried to recreate that for a long time and then this came to pass. It is easily three times better than the juice I was trying to make, by combining some simple layers from other recipes - you can do so much. Give this a mix, pull the Blueberry Trinity layer if you have not seen it before, it works very well in other ways.
You can shake and vape this - but if you put it in a closet for a couple weeks or so... you will enjoy it even more.
This recipe was inspired by mlNikon's Nog Milk https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/79010#nog_milk_thechristmasmix_by_mlnikon
I made the Nog Milk base and gave some of it to a friend and she asked me to add Strawberry. I was unsure at first, but came across a lot of real world recipes for Strawberry Eggnog smoothie / milkshake. I pulled the CAP/TFA combo from another recipe layer and put this little combo together. While you can shake and vape this, it came together much better after about 10 days. The creams came alive with a little rest.
I built this recipe with layers from Mixin Vixen's Berry Custard Episode #88
Cranberry Cobbler, Wild Berry Cobbler and Sweet Currant
ML Nikon mixed the Cranberry, Wild Berry and Currant in her Berry Cobbler Custard and that got me thinking about making this into a rich holiday tart wrapped around a Cheesecake. I mixed this as a V1 without the currant and it was a bit tart... but I think it could be a tad heavy in this version and will likely drop it to 1% on the v3 mix. I have also been playing with a touch of FLV White Chocolate in my cheesecakes and think this recipe could benefit from a touch of that as a binding agent to smooth out the berry and accent the cheesecake.
Along with the cobblers makes the bakery/crust note in this and is spot on to how I wanted it to feel on the mouth and the richness of that crumb topping and bits of soft gooey cobbler funk that I love so much.
Pudding, Ice Cream, Cheesecake - WOW... this was a winner and works really well to soften the berry and add that thick mouth feel and rich creamy after note. The LB imparts some butter and almost a thick rich cream to add to the cheesecake.
