I wanted to create a fruity simple vape with a slight creamy fizz to the whole experience basically something on the lines of a cream soda punch.
Tfa Juicy peach
I choose Tfa Juicy peach as I wanted this to be the main player in this recipe. I think it does this well in its profile granted it's not to everyone's taste basically down to its harshness that some experience but hopefully the obaoba calms it down I feel it does somewhat. Juicy peach just works for this recipe it's candy like profile suits the recipe it takes on that peach profile we are looking for here thus it's sweet has that candy like gummy sour profile and it's not to realistic so it doesn't fall away from the fun profile that it's participating in.
Capella sweet Strawberry
So with the peach taking the star role I wanted a fruit that sits side by side something that accompanies the peach and Strawberry does this very well. They play along with each other and this flavour is just noticeable in the exhale of the vape. Sweet Strawberry again is one Strawberry that suits the profile it's candy properties again work well in it not mimicking a natural Strawberry. The recipe requires some sweetness and this plays well. A natural Strawberry just wouldn't work remember this is a fun recipe.
This is this magic touch a fruit that you think shouldn't be there but along side the other fruits it kicks it in another direction. FA Fuji is a great flavour it works in whatever its trying to be whether a complicated recipe that requires dimension or as fun factor. It sits nicely at the rear just adding that tart apple after all that sweetness. It's bold and even at a small percentage it will tell you it's there. It definitely completes the whole experience.
Now the magic if it was just the 3 fruits it's still going to work but I felt it needed something. Like some sharpness or fizz not sweetener Yeah I could of added that and it will turn it up all that fruit needs a little sweetness but obaoba does that to a degree. It adds some citrus to it like some bite it tears through the fruits but it also comes across like a cream soda think like marshmallow but with some sparkle or fizz. It really is a magical ingredient and I'm glad I found it.
Steep time... Good as a shake and vape 2-3 calms the peach somewhat
Mix 70vg 30pg
This is a remix of the infamous circus cookie e liquid. It was created by 3 mixers including myself Aaron Vause and John N Jill Szollosi so credit has to go to all 3 of us.
Many a long night was spent creating this e liquid and finally after 8 versions between as all we came up with this finished version which all all agreed is very tasty.
Here are some notes.
FA cookie / cap sugar cookie / FW hazelnut
This created the cookie Base for the recipe we decided on cap sugar cookie for the main staple for the cookie but it does tend to hide behind other flavourings so needed some boost to make it shine. A small amount of fa cookie and FW hazelnut gives the cookie abit more weight and flavour and makes the cookie more enjoyable and noticeable on the exhale. Without the additions the exhale was somewhat lacking the texture of a hearty cookie.
Cap butter cream
This adds the butter cream into the cookie and rounds of what otherwise would be a dry biscuit flavour.
FA meringue / fa marshmallow / Tfa VBIC / fa joy
This creates the icing that you find on circus cookies and totally plays an important role in the recipe. We could of gone with loranns cream cheese icing but it tends to overpower and gives a waxy texture that seems to artificial. Adding meringue boosts the sweetness alongside adding weight to the marshmallow which is the star of the show. The VBIC combined with the meringue and marshmallow creates a perfect icing that totally works in conjunction with the cookie. FA joy is the magical addition that ties the icing together and creates the sprinkles over the icing.
INW shisha Strawberry
The recipe required a candy Strawberry flavour for the icing and after playing with capella sweet Strawberry it didn't cut the mustard and faded considerably with the other ingredients so after playing around with INW shisha Strawberry again a Strawberry known for its candy aspects we found it a bolder Strawberry that held its own against the other flavours and worked in its favour.
So imagine the experience you get that full on bold Strawberry inhale that turns into creamy icing with sprinkles that ignites buttery cookie. Perfect all day vape experience that will want you lusting for more.
Add sweetener should you wish
0.5% seems to be the sweet spot.

This is my remix of the popular UK e liquid lemon tart by dinner lady e liquids.
DIYorDIE Runner up recipe of the year!!!
This was a very long journey and i hope i've done some justice in attempting to copy it..... even if i did'nt ha i hope i've created a tasty lemon tart for you all to enjoy. I've managed to create its profile very well with sharp lemon curd followed by a creamy fluffy meringue finishing off with a buttery pastry crust.
FW Lemon meringue pie
I needed a profile to start with and this flavour seemed to work,its profile works very well with the other ingredients its lemon flavour is very bright and more forward and stronger than capellas offering. The meringue and pastry wasn't an issue at the time because i knew that could be worked on. The 3% was enough as a starting point without it taking over the recipe.
FA Lemon Sicily/Capella Juicy Lemon
This was the most tricky part of the recipe theres so many lemons to chose from it was a minefield and completely had my headspinning. I tried them all in various percentages and combinations. some were to authentic taking on a sour aspect that didn't suit the profile. I knew i already had a good lemon within the FW lemon meringue pie,but it wasn't bright enough. Everyone knows FA lemon sicily is a fantastic lemon so i had to use it. I pushed it to higher percentage because the lemon was the main profile of dinner lady lemon tart. It's vibrant and not sour and it really started to work in what i was trying to achieve. Again this was probably enough to complete the lemon profile but i was concerned overtime it might fade so another lemon i really liked and thought it would complement is capella juicy lemon. Adding a small percentage just built on each other creating a bolder lemon with some added sweetness and juice. They really work well together and that was the lemon complete.
FA Custard PI 3.14
I needed something to create the curd aspect i tried alot of variations and to this day this is one aspect that still bugs me and is something i'll go back to. However this seems my best option so it stays for the time being. It seems to work very well with combining with the lemons and the pie. Its not a heavy custard like capella vanilla custard which i did try and to some degree it works,but it does add vanilla which i didn't want in the recipe. Custard pi gives it that creamy curd feel and the custard also has citrus notes which is a win win and really works well into the lemons to create a kind of curd.
TFA Graham Cracker Clear/INW Biscuit/Capella Golden Butter
These 3 created the pastry base and worked excellent into the lemon meringue pie base. I love graham cracker clear and i think its in the original it lends to a nice creamy biscuit base and adding the biscuit at a lower percentage and the butter works its magic in creating a nice pastry filling.
We all now about this flavour it just works!!!! its in the original and it had to be in here. it's really forward in the original and pushing it to 1.5% is enough to give you that fluffy light mouthfull.
I added 0.75% mainly down to it being mainstream juice the original is sweet so why not,a little of whats good doesn't hurt . I also feel it tones down the lemons and turns them more into a cooked lemon rather than a sour fresh squeezed lemon. you can leave it out should you wish its still great without it.
TFA Bavarian Cream
I added this at a small percentage just to combine the whole recipe ,it also works well into the custard and lemons and hopefully ups the curd aspect aswell as adding a little glue to the recipe and not drying it out.
