    I was hesitant to post this because it isn't much more than a single flavor recipe. It's just so good though, that I thought some might appreciate it.

    I might try adding some other flavors to round out the profile, but CAP Funnel Cake is such a busy flavor that I'm not sure what flavors would support it. Suggestions are welcome.

    So here it is

    Cinnamon Funnel Cake
    4% Funnel Cake (CAP)
    0.8% Rich Cinnamon (FLV)
    1% Vanilla Shisha (INW)

    http://tjek.nu/r/mQ4T

    I made it max vg. It is good as a shake n vape but it gets a little better after a 24hr steep.(edit- a longer steep will probably be beneficial) The cinnamon is definitely strong but it isn't overpowering. If anyone had any suggestions to help round out this recipe please let me know.

    Hopefully you meant .1% as that would be way too much rich cinnamon..

    Definition of "taste is subjective": I might like something that you don't, and vice versa. ;)

    I meant RC and my phone auto corrected to RS for some reason, but you knew that I meant RC. My favorite recipe and ADV uses RC at .5% Herbreed's Cinnamon Churro (premium edit).

    Have you ever tried using RC at 1%? It's really good if you are a cinnamon fan. Flavors don't always do what you think they will when you go outside of recommended usages.

    I don't care enough about what you think of my tastes or my recipe to want to make a video for your little fanboy group.

    Actually yes I have, 5 yrs ago... and nopes thank you very much.. I like my 2-3 drops and use way less for more tastes..

    Too bad, I would have sent you a few 15ml bottles of Rich Cinnamon just for giggles.. oh well.

    and that is fan "girl" lol.. what ever. I have more than enough people to keep me entertained :)

    Oh no! What will I do without a free 30ml of flavoring? I guess I should have just kept my mouth shut and let you shit on my recipe. I really learned something today.

    Actually I did not shit on your recipe.. just your attitude.

    Too bad you won't prove anyone with a vid vaping 1% rich cinnamon. oh well.. whatever.
    Your loss.. since you like your rich cinnamon jacked up.
    I thought I was trying to do something nice and help supply you will a few bottles.
    All this is on you. ;)

    According to ElR.. average use is .33% in a recipe. check the reviews for solo..

    Well...the Carnival atmosphere that usually accompanies funnel cake seems to have been accomplished. :facepalm:

    I still haven't gotten any reccomendations to round out the profile. Only someone telling me I'm an idiot for using as much RC as I do.

    No one called you an idiot. Point to where it was done.

    No she didn't call me an idiot, but she might as well have. Look at SmokeyBlue's 2nd post in this thread and see if you can figure out how that might change my attitude towards her from friendly to hostile.

    If you were to look through my posting history you would see that I am usually friendly and curteous, but when people give me an attitude I don't hesitate to give it right back.

    I couldn't handle the CAP Funnel Cake. I tested it at 4% and got wicked Playdoh. It was a first for me. All the other flavors people claim they taste Playdoh, I didn't. I might give it another go at lower percentages, but its currently in my toss box. I really wanted to like it tho.

    Thanks for trying it. I tried the funnel cake at 3% the first time I made it but I didn't think it was strong enough. I'm just sitting down to mix some more right now I'm going to try it with some INW vanilla shisha.

    Not to throw a monkey wrench in here but...
    ...don't most read: ALL cake/cookie/dough/fritatta-french-toast monkey-crust type flavors need some steep time?

    I wasn't aware of that. I'm not very good at DIY yet so I don't know what needs to steep. I just tried it after 24hrs and thought it was good so figured it didn't need a steep. This most recent batch that I made with 1% Shisha Vanilla and 0.8% Rich Cinnamon has been steeping for a few days. I tried it immediately after mixing and it was good but I will hold off on vaping it and try it after it has had a couple weeks to steep.
    Thanks for the pointer.

    And again, taste is definitely subjective. I know that phrase is pretty much worn out, but it's true nonetheless. I hated Caps funnel cake so much I gave it away after only two mixes, tasted like pure Play-Doh to me. But I found one of the mixes I'd made that contained it stashed at the back of my desk where it had been sitting for a good six months. Tried it and proceeded to knock out the rest of the 30ml bottle in less than a day. Now I have to order more funnel cake to make it again, it was that good. If you like something immediately after mixing, then it's a good juice. If you prefer the taste after a short steep or a long one, then by golly it's a good juice. I don't care if it contains 10% rich cinnamon, if you like it, it's good. ;)

    I mix cinnamon at higher levels than most people, too. Haven't used any FLV cinnamon, but still, when I do have cinnamon, I want it to stand up and shout!

    If I were making that recipe, the few things that occur to me are (1) butter for richness, (2) cookie for enhancement of the bakery profile, (3) whipped cream for smoothing out the finish just a bit.

    And yes, I think you'll find it much improved after 4 days to a week of steeping.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the tips. I'll make some more in a day or two and make a few small batches to try different things. Do you have any suggestions for butters? I just have so many I have a hard time choosing butters/creams.

    The only butter I have ordered is TFA, but it seems to be adaptable to the recipes I've used it in, but then again, I've kept percentages low. Don't usually use more than 0.4-0.6% unless I'm mixing something that needs to be really butter-heavy, like a shortbread.

    hmm.. that would not have made me hostile.. sorry you took it that way.. I do like to share how people mix with flv on my fb page.
    because you did cock an attitude, I did too. I freely admit it.. but I give just as good if not better back, and I meant it when I said I'd even give ya a few bottles to help your supply.. let's face it, based on your rate of use.. you'd spend 100% more on it than I will in my lifetime.

    But because your attitude, I will not go thru with it, even if you and I think different etc blah blah.. its null.
    and I could have gone as high as a 4oz.. but again, doesn't matter now. does it?

    Personally if it was me, I'd pick some other bakeries to toss in.. fa cookie, flv pound cake or cupcake batter, pastry zest, some vanilla bean or vanillin.. but I was curious first on your 1% usage.. again.. none of it matters.. good luck in your mixing career.. ;)
