A rich & thick custard generously spooned over oven fresh cake to Trump all others...
My go-to INW Custard combo is simply the best custard base known to man: creamy, thick, rich and delectably smooth. This trumps all custard also-rans and is packed full of flavor, and then some.
OOO Corn Bread is fast becoming my go-to cake base & provides a perfectly sweet & dense cake with very little corn notes after a steep. Most recipes containing Corn bread calls for the addition of corn, popcorn, etc to boost the corn note but it is not necessary here as I did not see out to create a traditional corn per se.
The caramel butter takes this to the next level by adding an authentic, creamy caramel boost to the custard whilst thrusting its inherent butteriness.
Give this baby at least 5 days to settle and enjoy!
A light & smooth tobacco kissed with vanilla & caramel.
This is a deceptively simple analogue killer, designed to provide a tobacco sub to new converts & veterans alike.
SM A+ Blend is a superbly blended, medium bodied blend of familiar tobaccos which most ex smokers will be able to relate to. This is the perfect transitional tobacco vape = "light, smooth, slightly sweet & nutty" and sure to satisfy any bacco lover. The first drag reminds one of the full aromas which fills the nostrils upon opening a new pack of analogues = fresh, sweet and slightly nutty tobacco...
HS Caramel toffee adds a splendid sweet and creamy caramel without distraction & enhances the innate natural sweetness of the tobacco blend.
A touch of Shisha Vanilla completes our masterpiece by masterfully doing what it does best = provide the best possible vanilla flavor...
Give this baby 7 days to reach its potential and enjoy!
A stunning creamy vanilla coffee kissed with a hint of caramel and fresh apple slices.
This is a redux of Morning Glory, which is still one of my favorite recipes to date: https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/84671
The addition of the apple was an unintended ‘mistake’ when I accidentally added the apple combo to a pre-steeped bottle of Morning Glory instead of Creme Brulee and the result was surprisingly good! I decided to revisit the OG recipe and publish this version with one or two minor tweaks.
The hunt for a smooth, slightly sweet, caramel coffee has been, as any DIY’er will know, one of the most difficult feats to pull off. Enter Cafe Napoleon... this baby has none of the skunky coffee off notes and delivers, as per the DFS a ‘sweet and satisfying caramel infused coffee” - and they weren’t twisting the truth... This is not an in-your-face shot of espresso but rather a homage to coffee, highlighting its delicate flavours. The coffee note is moderately boosted with a touch of VT Arabica coffee, to provide a fuller coffee note, absent in the OG recipe.
The Cafe Napoleon lays the foundation here and is deservedly given a loving embrace by Holy Holy Grail which adds a delectable, but subtle, RY4 note which instantly propelles it from great to freakin fantastic!
Vanilla, in my opinion, is essential for a morning pick-me-up and gives this baby the legendary Holy Vanilla treatment...yuminess!
The biscuit adds a touch of texture without detracting from the protagonist and sits very well here at 1%.
The custard enrobes the ensemble of flavours and ads a velvety smoothness and mouth feel to thrust this baby into atmospheric proportions!
FA Fuji is the undisputed king of apples and here, it does all the heavy lifting on the apple front. Sweet, crispy and uber realistic, FA Fuji précis a Fuji apple uncannily. The INW apple brings a sweet apple juice type vibe to the party and boosts the Fuji’s sweetness to create a stunning apple combo.
A week will be enough for all the flavours to rise to the occasion but 2 will give you a morning glory, and then some...
A deliciously creamy coffee froth with a trickle of caramel toffee...
I recently discovered the VT coffee range and instantly fell in love with ‘em... My loooonnnnngggg search for one of the most unattainable profiles in DYI has finally been realized - a true coffee with no skunky, rubbery, burnt or chemical vibes....
VT Arabica coffee is a phenomenal coffee flavor and accurately expresses all that is the magnificence of coffee = balanced aroma, lively acidity and full body. Period.
The ultra creamy coffee milk froth is a thing of beauty and then some... The best way to describe it is when you use your spoon or finger (my favorite utensil ) to scoop the last delectable milk froth remains from the side of your cappuccino cup and after you dispensed of your (overpriced) cappuccino. The rich, naturally sweet textured milk has just a touch of espresso and it is so good that you are tempted to order another just to lick the froth from the cup!
Sweetened with a touch of caramel toffee, this is my favorite coffee combo to date.
This baby needs 7 days or so for the coffee to extract to perfection.
Smashed blackberries folded into thick, sweet cream.
I set out to replicate a traditional fool which is a very simple & delicious dessert which involves folding pureed or stewed fruit into sweet cream or custard.
FA Vienna cream provides the main, sweet and creamy base bolstered by a smidgen of FLV cream to take it to the next level of uber creamy goodness. A spot of marshmallow to fluff and sweeten things up and we are good to go!
The simplicity and brilliance of FW Blackberry Is put to the test here and works perfectly to provide a fresh, juicy blackberry flavor. The CAP Lemon Lime compliments and balances the creaminess and fruitiness with finesse.
Being cream heavy, this baby needs at least 7 days to shine, 10 days best.
A luscious & velvety Panna Cotta mizzled with fresh mango.
I set out to create a true Italian Panna Cotta (Italian for "cooked cream") = an Italian dessert of sweetened cream thickened with gelatin.
The (not so) obvious choice here is JF Bavarian Cream which outperforms TFA in this application (by far). Soft, rich, uber creamy with just the right amount of vanilla is the perfect bed to receive the sweet & abundant mango blessing. TPA Sweet cream lifts the Bavarian cream by boosting the creaminess with finesse. CAP Sweet Cream can simply not compete in this race and unceremoniously dethroned
Holy Vanilla, used relatively high, adds the ultimate vanilla flavor here and provides a delicate sweetness & creaminess to the Panna Cotta.
FE Mango has been my favorite mango this year and shows its full colors here. Full, juicy & ripe mango goodness... I have encountered NO evidence of the 'myth' of the fading FE Mango and not sure who started this nonsense. I have a reference SF test batch dating back to January and it has shown negligible fading. The flavor is (still) on point and, even after 5 months, still (far) better than any of its rivals.
A touch of Papaya adds a bit of intrigue and keeps the mango profile from being linear and, vitally, assists with balancing the sweetness.
As creams go, this baby needs a good 7 days to fully develop.
An uber creamy panna cotta drenched in a vibrant forrest fruit coulis.
This is a delectable Panna cotta, with added zing, demonstrating the simplicity of creating an simple, yet complex tasting juice using 3 or 4 quality ingredients. The yoghurt isn’t entirely necessary but it adds an additional layer of complexity to take the base from good to magnificent...
MB Panna Cotta is described as a “Creamy and soft panna cotta dessert with soft cream and hint of raspberry and a touch of vanilla” which perfectly surmises this gem. I picked up an unexpected nutty/malty note which keeps this from being flat but may take some by surprise. Although the malty note is not unpleasant, it may not fit into delicate recipes where a true, plain panna cotta is the desired profile. In this recipe however, it adds depth and marries beautifully with the dark & earthy berry layer.
I added a smidgen of FW Yoghurt to cut through the creaminess and add a bit of ‘zing’ to the Panna cotta base. This can be omitted if you prefer a fuller, creamier vape but I believe the two compliments one another perfectly.
The fruit layer is not a new revelation, but this combo just works so stunningly, that it was the obvious choice as the crowning jewel to adorn our lionheart.
The hint of raspberry in the panna cotta is just enough to compliment the fruit combo and sits nicely in the background.
WS23 optional at 0.25% to emulate a cold version, and works a treat here.
The cream needs at least 7 days to find its happy place. 2 weeks is better...

A delectable, thick and creamy pear and ice cream frulata.
A delicious blended frulata (or ice cream based smoothie) using a (relative) newcomer in the pear category.
Molinberry managed to create something which only 2 other flavor houses have ever managed to do...create a pear flavor which actually tastes like pear! Many have tried, most have failed but a savior is here in the form of Shape up Pear! It is an all-encompassing true, authentic, natural pear: skin, flesh, grittiness and all!
This semi-sweet, fresh pear accurately represents the best bits of a ripe pear with ease and, I suspect, will become the natural go-to pear for many a mixer. I bolstered the (delicate) pear note with a touch of FA Pear to make sure it kicks through our frulata base, which can easily dominate less robust flavors.
The milkshake base is given a smoothie twist with a dollop of yoghurt to cut through the sweetness by adding a smidgen of tartness, which balances the sweetness of both the pear and milkshake base alike. The milkshake base, penned by @Freshepies, is simply the very best milkshake base around - thick and creamy vanilla ice cream blended to absolute perfection.
Give this baby at least 5 days for the creams to meld and enjoy!

A popping cherry lollipop popper!
This is a morish cherry Popsicle sure to turn your lips red!
MB Red cherry is a fantastic new(ish) entrant in the cherry category and is set to upset some of the big players. Most of the cherry options are bleh and Molinberry has manged to create a winner here! This is a juicy, sweetened, red cherry, minus the medicinal cough syrup vibe - enough said! This get truly better with time and develops a fantastic deep and juicy cherry after the 2 week mark. The Red Cherry is filled out with a touch of INW Cherries (NOT INW CHERRY!) to fill in the gaps and allows the full cherry to shine. A lick of FA Forest fruit completes the richness and body and keeps the cherry form being linear.
A smidgen of Fizzy Sherbet adds the fizzy, sour centre element.
Good after 3 days or so but better after 7 and even better after 14!

A thick, layered custard slice adorned with honeycomb.
The filling is comprised of my unfailing 1-2-3 brulee stone with the brûlée knocked down ever so slightly. I have been using this base for a while now & it keeps on delivering. To me, the is a pre-eminent custard which just works magically here...Thick an d creamy oral pleasure...
I recently discovered WF Croissant and very impressed with it's brilliant performance. It manages to encapsulate the delicate croissant pasty notes perfectly and with relative ease. A touch of FA cookie provides a bit of texture to round of the pastry layer.
VT honeycomb is a remarkable revelation and allows us to mix honey based recipes with confidence. This provides a subtle honey note with a touch of texture to bring this recipe alive!
Give this baby 5 days to settle...
