Custard Creams are a traditional and classic British biscuit (cookie in the US) . They are a type of sandwich biscuit filled with a creamy, custard-flavoured centre. Traditionally the filling is vanilla flavour . I wanted to do a variation with a much richer , buttery biscuit and a creamy lemon custard filling .
Good after 7 days but really benefits from at least 14 days steeping
A cool, dragonfruit elderflower recipe.
INW Dragonfruit is the main fruit note here, and standing next to it is FLV Elderflower with its unique, refreshing floral brand .
TFA Dragonfruit lends some emulsification support.
INW Cactus is there to lend a bit of sour/tart and boost the juiciness of the Dragonfruit.
TFA Wintergreen blends seamlessly with the WS-23, giving a cool green-ness that doesn't get minty. Tried with 0.5% WS-23 at first, but I found the coolant was overshadowing the other flavors too much.
In 1813, Dolley Madison (first lady) served a magnificent strawberry ice cream creation at President James Madison's second inaugural banquet at the White House. This was seen as the first big introduction to the world of this delicious dessert. Apparently she didn't mind the odd cigar either. She was well known for not only bringing both sides of politics together in a socially positive way but also for the quote, "I would rather fight with my hands than my tongue".
I think if she was around in this era, she would of said "I will fight for the right to vape and to taste with my tongue again"
Just maybe if history was different, 207 years later she would have been enjoying this lovely combination in a vape.
This is my 2020 version of the classic Strawberry Ice-Cream in a vape with the best known vape flavours known to our industry right now.
A delicious, juicy and jammy strawberry ice cream layered with a little marshmallow and vanilla in a serene experience that will tantilise your taste buds with texture and flavour.
A short 3 Day plus steep is well worth the wait after a good shake as it will allow that little bit of time for all the ingredients to layer and meld nicely.
Why I did what I did ?
LB Vanilla Ica Cream - Is simply the best creamiest and smooth easy to work with ice cream flavours that acts as a lovely base here.
WF Buttercream Frosting - assist the ice cream so the ice cream has a better mouthfeel rather than the usual melted ice cream mouthfeel, it tastes more authentic.
FLV Marshmallow Vanilla - Fills out the body of this vape very nicely offering some delectable tones of vanilla as well.
OOO Strawberry Jam - Is in my opinion the most authentic tasting, full flavored strawberry jam flavour on the market today. It brings the depth of the strawberry through out this recipe.
FA Red Touch Strawberry - Is such a delicious and round, full flavoured strawberry that contrasts and accents wonderfully here.
A little super sweet helps to make it shine a little.
You can treat this with a little extra if you like.
add a little white choc (I suggest 0.5-1% FLV White Choc or 1.5% FW White Choc), maybe a little coconut (I suggest for texture 1.5% VTA Desiccated coconut or creamy coconut FLV Coconut 1%) , or maybe you would like a bit of that ice cream cone by adding a little WF Sugar cone and/or WF Crispy Wafer if you like (up to around 2% of either).
You aren't going to steal my Ice-cream Mr Hunt!
Not on my watch Mr. Hunt!
Australia is currently in a massive battle to save our industry from planned legislation that would effectively make nicotine almost inaccessible.
We only have til January 1, 2021 leaving us only a few moths to try and turn this around. Please stay informed and keep up to date with all the calls to action via the DIY Downunder FB page.
I mixed this at 70% VG
I enjoy this at 60W on a Single 0.2ohm SST coil on a Recurve RDA.
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

OOO O's cookie brings the oreo cookie theme. Crispy wafer brings that crispy cookie aspect without bringing butter like a biscuit would. Chemnovatic cookie fills in the gaps to the cookie base, FA would be a fair replacement and ATF doesn't list chemnovatic flavors.
**Note** I used chemnovatic cookie at 1.5%, not FA, but I do think the recipe would be nearly unchanged using FA.
The oreo filling is compromised of VT sweet cream and Tfa Bavarian cream, bringing a rich thick cream. The shisha vanilla colors the cream vanilla and creates a separation from the cookie and the cream.
Glamor chocolate brings a little more chocolate to the profile and seemed to play well with everything.
FA milk...is the milk, the best available milk so it makes sense to use it here.
**optional..super sweet, I feel it's essential in a recipe like this, but I know a lot of folks don't like to vape sweetener.
*add 1% cream cheese icing for a "double stuf" vibe.
Years ago, after trying someone's Honey Pearry remix (Pear, Honeydew, some Strawberry) and tweaking it to my liking, one of the first things I wanted to do was make a mango version. Unfortunately for me, that was before FLV Mango and other great mango flavors even existed, and my attempts were so bad I had to give up and settle for a peach version. I've finally revisited that old desire, and making a juicy, sweet honeydew/pear with a nice mango top note proved easy thanks to the combination of FLV Mango and VT Shisha Mango. The INW Prickly Pear makes it extra juicy while enhancing both the pear and melon aspects.
