Raksha Bandhan Special: Vanilla Cupcake

I made this for the auspicious occasion of Raksha Bhandan. It’s an Indian festival in which the brother ties a decorative string/band on his sister’s hand as a promise to protect his sister until he breathes his last. It’s celebrated all over India. The sister in return gives her a gift and specially something sweet with it. My brother loved it and I hope it manages to calm your sweet tooth too. 😉
