InOnIt Guides: Raksha Bandhan Sweets in Mumbai
On the one day dedicated to your dear brother, of course you must make him feel special. Raksha Bandhan sweets in Mumbai are such a rage with not just regular mithais making the rounds now. There are customised desserts, homemade thalis and everything to do with rakhis and bros! We have chosen our picks this season so you can indulge in Rakhi desserts by home bakers and others who customize sweet treats, with your beloved brother.
Knead with Love
Recently started by engineer-turned-baker Richa Lulla, Knead with love is offering yummy treats on a tray wrapped into one with a ribbon on it. Mini treats with flavours such as coffee, peanut butter and oats, coconut, chocolate mousse, salted caramel and hazelnut praline; cookie bags with hazelnut kisses, choco chunky cookies and more can be ordered. What we love is their dessert tray that has 6 mini treats, 3 almond rocks, 2 dessert glasses and 10 eggless cookies. A definite family pleaser! Orders can be placed by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org till 16th August.
