✨2021 Advent HQ ✨
Pancake and Lulu Advent HQ
Welcome to the Festive Yarn Tasting
The 2021 Advent Calendar is inspired by festive treats and fun drinks in all the colors! Each mini skein is paired with a fun colorful recipe I have found online.
Each day, I post a photo reveal of the day's colorway along with a photo of the inspirational recipe. I encourage everyone to try some of the recipes with me!
You can follow along with me on instagram @pancakeandlulu and my YouTube channel: Pancake and Lulu Yarn and Fiber.
If you use Instagram or Ravelry, use the hashtag #pancakeandlulu to post your daily yarn and/or a special treat of the day (whatever it may be)!
Thank you for purchasing the Advent Calendar and for supporting Pancake and Lulu Yarn ~ I had a blast creating this for you.
Enjoy your stitching, sipping and nibbling!

Robin's Egg Macaron
Not That Easy, But Turned Out Great!
Sapphire Alpine Martini
Delicious recipe! - (I didn't make mine gluten free).
Delicious, pretty and easy - naturally colored with blue butterfly pea flower powder - this recipe is actually quite healthy!
Blue Matcha Cake
These are very similar to Day 5 but bite size - (probably not going to make this one since I made the previous recipe).
I didn't realize Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Powder is the same thing as Blue Matcha. Actually I didnt know these even existed before I created this Advent Calendar. It is such a beautiful natural food color.
This recipe sent me down a Monin Syrup rabbit hole!
Made this beautiful milkshake for my daughter - she loved it!
Ube Crinkle Cookie
This color!! It is natural from Ube - a purple yam popular in the Philippines!
The recipe I found for homemade Ube Jam is here . I am using Stokes purple sweet potatoes I found at Whole Foods, since fresh Ube is hard to find in the US.
Purple People Eater
A dark and moody drink!
And I found a simple recipe for homemade sweet and sour mix for this drink here.
A healthy, delicious & thick smoothie! You definitely need a high powered blender. A few splashes of pineapple juice helped it blend.
These were a hit with fresh raspberries and goat and cream cheese - yum!
I HAVE to make these. Meringues are my absolute favorite.
Pitaya Smoothie Bowl
So excited to see the gorgeous pink from Pitaya, aka Dragon Fruit!
I have everything to make this except the maraschino liqueur - so I think I will make these over the weekend. Isn't the color gorgeous?!
Unicorn Hot Chocolate
Such a pretty pink twist on a classic snowy day favorite!
These drinks were so delicious and refreshing and this color is one of my favorite colors that I came up with for the Advent this year.
These cookies are so classic and this new colorway is officially my favorite from the whole calendar - I want a sweater out of it!
Airy Angel Food
Another naturally colored treat - this beautiful pink comes from beetroot powder.
This is a reproduction of a drink from the Starbuck's "secret" menu - with hibiscus tea and coconut milk.
Chocolate PB Cup
I love the bit of pink on these! I don't have pitaya powder, so I may have to think of something else...stay tuned for my version!
Photo courtesy of Hemphill Photo - Glad you enjoyed it!
Not sure I will make these again but the color was spot-on to match my yarn!
A beautiful, potent and mysterious cocktail of the 1930s!
We made these on New Year's Eve - So good!
Christmas Tree Meringue
Aren't these the cutest!? I love meringues - so definitely want to try these.
Bonus Full Skein
Mmmm...gingerbread cookies. Coming soon to my house!
