Strawberries and Cream
Everyones got one, heres mine. INW Shisha Strawberry and JF Sweet Strawberry are an unbeaten combination for an artificial but vibrant flavor. Plus I can actually taste them unlike half the others I've tried. FA Madagascar, my go to for a 'familiar' or 'commercial' vanilla and LB Vanilla Ice Cream create an awesome vanilla cream base to build off of, with FA Marshmallow adding even more thickness. FW Yogurt for a tiny bit of tang to set it off. Sweeten to taste.
Quite good off the literal shake, vanilla and strawberries up front but the longer it steeps the richer and fuller this vape gets.

Sweet mixed berry with a slightly tart/sour finish
Starting with forest fruit and adding blackberry to darken things up a bit. Adding juicy lemon enhances the underlying touch of tartness in forest fruit. Coconut added a nice background note and also blends well with berries. Off the shake you will indeed get a lemony sour note, after 12 hr or so the distinct lemon flavor fades and winds up as a slight tart/sour note in the finish of this tasty mix.
Sweeten and/or cool to taste.
Dead simple cinnamon pudding with some bakery notes, great vape to bring in the fall/winter. FLV Pudding and INW Custard make a nice creamy base to build upon. CAP CDS is an awesome concentrate,bringing bakery type cinnamon flavor with FA Cookie added to back up those cake/pastry notes a bit. Sweeten to taste and let this steep for 3-4 days then its golden. Enjoy!

SnV Banana Custard
Drawing on my 2 favorite custards with minimal steep time, this is a mashup of EdibleMalfunctions Custard Now (https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/73934#custard_now_by_ediblemalfunction) and freshepies Old Skewl (https://e-liquid-recipes.com/recipe/2410870?). Balancing the 2 was a bit tricky but once I had a good ratio going I needed another element to wrap this mix up. VT banana custard gives me that final creamy fresh banana note I was looking for without having to wait for the 'runts' to steep out. Adjust to taste although I would only push 0.10 to 0.25 super sweet as this recipe carries alot of inherent sweetness.

Ry4-ish pb custard
Moving some of my recipes over from elr, this is from a few months ago.
reviewed at 48:20
Not having dabbled in commercial RY4s much at all I really cant compare it to anything, but if you trust Maxs opinion this recipe is worth checking out if RY4 is your jam.
The idea is for a peanutty custard with some caramel undertones, a satisfying dessert vape.
TPA DX Peanut Butter- my go to PB, this brings good flavor and sets the direction of the profile.
TPA Acetyl Pyrazine (5%)- bolsters the PB and add a bit of nutty depth
TPA Ry4 Double- using this as my caramel/other vanilla tone. Solo RY4x2 has a bit of a dirty bite to me, but in conjunction with the PB and AP they seem to smooth out or hide that edge.
TPA Vanilla Custard 2- my crutch custard, develops into a really nice vanilla custard that can stand up against some other dark flavors.
TPA Bavarian Cream- used in concert with the custard we get another element, more vanilla and some additional sweetness.
I'm good with no super sweet in this but as always add to taste.
Butterscotch ice cream and cookie
So this is one of those constantly evolving mixes with Butterscotch Ripple being the only original surviving concentrate. I chose to release it now because while I may still play around with percentages I feel the heart of the mix is where I want it to be.
Originally I was going for a simple butterscotch ice cream. TFA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and FW Butterscotch Ripple got me that but there was alot of room to improve. After a myriad of different creams I settled on LB Vanilla Ice Cream and FA Fresh Cream (panna fresca) as they brought some great flavor on their own and complimented each other as well as the Butterscotch Ripple nicely. LB Vanilla Ice Cream at 4.5% does all the heavy lifting as a base layer while FA Fresh Cream fills in some gaps with extra butter and cream notes.
Feeling like this needed some bakery support I tried CAP Sugar Cookie as well as INW Biscuit which were fine but in the end FA Cookie just worked better. At 1.25% it definitely has a presence but does not overtake or dry the mix.
Finished product is a super smooth cream/bakery vape with massive flavor.
Sweet to taste, can be vaped off the shake for a super creamy butterscotch ice cream flavor, or give it a couple days steep for that bakery to develop. I mix this more frequently in smaller batches as I like this mix fresh, after a month or so the profile is still there but loses a bit of vibrancy.

Mixed berries, no creams or bakeries
Using forest fruit as a building block will get you a 'decent at worst' result 90% of the time. With as much as it has going on, I only needed a couple berries to push into a bit of a new direction while still keeping the heart of the vape distinctly forest fruit. Wanting to get a little more saturated currant flavor up front, sweet currant was an easy grab. Blueberry juicy ripe is a flavor that I've beeen digging for awhile and it pairs nicely with the sweet currant. The dragonfruit is used at a 1 percent to add a little background note while also blending this whole thing into a tasty mixed berry profile. I like it with a quarter percent sweetener and mix every other 30ml with 1% ws23 but feel free to dress it up how you like.
This can be vaped off the literal shake and you will get a delicious currant and blueberry forward vape, 24 hrs and it starts to meld together.
Berries n cream
The idea behind this mix was to get a creamy vape with minimal steep time while adding a nice berry blend to the mix. Off the shake its killer IMO, super wet and flavorful but after a quick steep it comes together.
CAP Sweet Currant was used as a main note here as I had gotten the flavor awhile ago but never made good use of it. It is a really nice flavor, juicy and well rounded and can be used as a stand alone if desired.
FLV Jammy Berry and TFA Blackberry is a blatant rip from Foment_Lifes use of the combo in DAAPLBerry Cream. The 2 concentrates just meld real nice together and worked wonderfully with the sweet currant as a dark berry mix for my fruit notes.
(Original mix was 1% FLV Sweet Coconut) this stuff is just killer and works well with berries. Its not real pronounced in this mix at 1% but I was using it as a note to lighten up the berries as well as a bridge to the cream.
After revisiting this mix I switched to an equal percent FA Coco as I enjoy the flavor a bit more and it melds with the creams better. Either coconut is fine though.
INW Custard and INW Yes, We Cheesecake the idea of the juice was to have a quick steeping mix so this just seemed to fit. I was originally going to just use the custard and a vanilla but wanted a thicker body so the cheesecake came into play. There is room for a crust or bakery note as well but I was just going for a cream/fruit aspect here.
Strawberries and cream with cake
Riffing on a juice I had when I first started vaping, Cobra by Om Vapors. To me it was a decent juice but I wanted to take a crack at re interpreting it all these years later. Described by the manufacturer as a strawberry ice cream with cake crumbs, my version is more strawberries and cream on cake.
INW Shisha Strawberry/FA Red Touch/JF Strawberry Sweet: The main note in here is strawberry, and there is no better place to use ID10-T's trinity. As an accent you could go use any of these 3 solo but to have it stand up in a mix the trinity is the way to go. As an added bonus, people that are strawberry blind (I am to some extent) seem to get some flavor out of this berry combo.
TFA Vanilla Swirl/Whipped Cream: In my version I wanted to utilize a lighter cream component. Originally I was using FA Meringue and a custard for the dairy/vanilla notes but it was too heavy. Whipped cream gets you a nice fluffy cream and swirl brings some body while not weighing down the mix. In addition you get the binding quality of swirl to bring everything together.
JF Yellow Cake: From what I remember, Cobra had a bit more of a white cake vibe for which I was going to use WF Fluffy White Cake but switched to yellow cake as I enjoy the flavor a bit more. I also needed to have something with a bit more weight to counter the airy cream.
Final product will yield a really nice smooth vape, sitting somewhere between a classic strawberry cream and cake. Nothing ground breaking here but all in all this turned out pretty damn good. Can be SnV but after a short steep is even better. If mixed please review/comment, all feedback welcome.
