I just read the notes on VTA Golden Syrup (at ELR - see Nadalama's recipe just above for link to page) and it sounds a lot like simple syrup cooked a little long, giving a light caramel note I'm putting it on my list! Guessing it could contribute to several nice candy recipes , including my coconut candy idea. I'd need something to give it some body (i'm thinking marshmallow), coconut flesh (fa coconut comes to mind for me) and something for the dark-nearly burnt bits. No idea about how to do that last. Anybody have ideas?

Toasted marshmallow? I'd put a smidge of NR's Paradiso in there too, if it were me.

How about TFA Toasted Marshmallow? Kill two birds with one stone.

Yup. That’s pretty much it. Also works well as a “fake” pancake syrup. Like Aunt Jemimah’s type thing.

So.....Palm Coconut vs Coconut Candy.

Palm Coconut is sweet, creamy and has that coconut candy bar texture. There’s also a real coconut element. Like the inside of a candy bar. Can stand alone better.

Coconut Candy is sweet, thinner. Like a coconut hard candy. Not as much body. More like coconut extract. More like a booster.

Both are good and useful for a lovely, sweet coconut taste. Just depends on what you’re looking for.

@wildgypsy70 I don't know if you have already, but if you have not, please try out a good dose of OOO Powdered Sugar in a cake or two. (I've mixed two different recipes using it at 2% in addition to other sweeteners, cake base flavors of FW Yellow Cake, Cap Cake Batter, and Cap Sugar Cookie.)

I am more convinced than ever now that OOOPS brings out a sweet crusty taste that I haven't tasted before in any other cake combination.

Mix up something small when you get a chance. You'll see what I mean right off the bat. It's unmistakable. I guess the questionable part is whether you like having that golden crusty taste in cake or not. To me it adds to realism, adds depth, does not add a lot of extra sweetness. I am gaga over it. :)

New Nilla Cake remix

Almond (Mandorla) (FA) 1.5%
Butter Cream (CAP) 1.5%
Cake Batter (CAP) 0.6%
Coconut (FW) 1%
French Vanilla Deluxe (TPA) 2%
Frosting (Flavorah) 2%
Joy (FA) 0.6%
Marshmallow (FW) 2.5%
Marzipan (FA) 1.25%
Powdered Sugar (OOO) 2%
Sugar Cookie (CAP) 1.5%
Yellow Cake (FW) 4%

Needs steeping, this might be just a first-of-many, but no offense intended, I had to get rid of the FA Cookie and Cap VCV1 in my Nilla Cake. There's a lot I like about this mix already. The Cookie needs to calm down.

Excellent tip! I haven’t tried that. But I will definitely try it now! Sounds like what’s missing with cake flavorings.....that touch of crust. I’m working on a cake right now so we’ll see what happens. Thank you so much!!!

I have used 000 powdered sugar as a coating to a apple jak recipe. 0.5-0.75% works well for me. It adds to the flavor of the bits. I'm still working on this one.
Nice! Another good tip. I’ve got a big bottle of powdered sugar in my cart....my little bottle is almost gone. :(

I hope I haven't asked this question before. Does anyone know if Nic River blue raspberry is a good stand alone flavor? I have had it a few months (untouched) and have no clue on why I purchased the flavoring. :) I'm must be some sort of flavor ho who is very forgetful.

So when I’m sketching or exercising, I listen to all kinds of vaping things. A few days ago, I was listening to @Boogenshizzle do one of his q&a sessions on FB. He was going on about something and I caught a gem of an idea.....FA Custard Premium and FA Maple to create butterscotch. I just now tried it...Premium at 2.5% and Maple at 0.5%.....it definitely works! Off the shake it’s creamy, a little dark, rich and thick. A few days of steeping should do it a world of good. The maple might be too high? We’ll see in a bit.:DThat man is a wealth of knowledge!
That maple most definitely will be too high. I usually keep it around .15% That being said, it might be BANGING in a really airy RDA! Kudos!

Not a clue.

I have not looked yet, thought I'd ask first in case anyone knows right off, but are any of you aware of a Black Walnut flavoring? Black walnut of course is quite different from regular walnut, in case you've never tasted one.

I want black walnut ice cream. This is another of those things I remember from kid-days, and would love to replicate it in eliquid.

ETA: Looks like Bickford flavors (now carried by DIY Vapor Supply) has a Black Walnut. It is water soluble, so not an oil. I think that's good news.

ETA2: DIY Vapor Supply's cheapest shipping rate is $7.49? They can keep it.

Same here! Always made a cart but never ordered. No option for first class mail. Lorann makes a black walnut but its loaded with sugar if I remember correctly.

If I needed to place a bigger order and shipping was $7.49, I might consider it.

At first I had added some PG & VG and the shipping was over $10. No way.

So wonder how many flavors they'll ship for $7.49? I'll have to check that out next time I'm ready to order, just to get that Black Walnut.

Of course, as @RonJS said, if they're in Michigan, who knows if they'll be shipping for long?

So I'm taking a survey, for anyone who cares to give an answer:

Even though I am overrun with juice, and I said I was gonna take a break from mixing, and I already mixed a couple of things since I said that....

Am I gonna mix tonight the Chocolate Meringue Pie recipe I came up with last night?

Devil's saying, aw, c'mon, it'll only take a minute, it's just one more flavor, don't you wanna try the chocolate? Oh now you are just being silly making all these rules and besides, what's it gonna hurt? Just one more bottle? Huh? Huh?

And I'm saying good god, I can barely move for vape stuff sitting all over the place, and every time I try to pick up a battery I knock something off this damn table, and besides which it is gonna take me FOREVER to get through all the juice I already have....there are at least 50 30ml bottles of stuff already mixed up.

See my conundrum? I needs me some help!

Well I mixed it. And I've tasted it. And it ain't bad, but it has no Cap Chocolate Fudge Brownie in it. It might be alright, we'll see. For as much chocolate as there is in the recipe, the chocolate tastes pretty light, and that's after I added an extra 1% of Cocoa. I originally had only 1% Cocoa. I'm gonna call this one a steeper, I'll try it again in 3 or 4 days.

Chocolate Meringue Pie

Bavarian Cream (TPA) 4%
Butter (TPA) 0.4%
Chocolate Glazed Doughnut (CAP) 2.3%
Cocoa (Cacao) (FA) 2%
Glamour Chocolate (Molinberry) 2.5%
Meringue (TPA) 2.75%
Pie Crust (FW) 2%
Powdered Sugar (OOO) 1.25%
Sweetener (FW) 0.8%

Total 18%

I wish I could find my TFA Bittersweet Chocolate. It needs maybe 1% of that in place of the 1% Cocoa I added.

You inspired me to come up with a recipe for creme-caramel custard. I will have to research some decent flavorings.

Edit: I'm thinking WF Caramel butter, Molinberry Legendary custard/flavorah custard.I haven't mixed up MB Legendary custard but from the reviews it seems it could stand alone.

So I tried Dinner Lady Lemon Tart. Not that big of a fan I guess. It reminds me of TFA Fruit Circles without the chimical note. It's tastes a bit Pledge-y but maybe I haven't tried enough yet.
Lemon Tart V4 from ELR, voodootroll I think? Great recipe, sub FE Lemon for the FA Lemon Sicily.

Kinda makes me think of Meg's Boss Blonde Caramel Custard, but so many good new flavors have come out lately!

The legendary is really rich and eggy like. Very flavourful in the nickbrosia recipe. Best custard I've tried in 10 years

Mebbe also check if "ELRECIPES" for 10% off still works ?? :idea:

Have you tried any of the VT chocolates? They have some pretty good ones, IMO. They have a dark chocolate that’s quite lovely.
