CANTON, MASS. — For a limited time Dunkin’ Brands is offering customers a chance to celebrate the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton by purchasing a Royal Wedding Donut, while the company’s sister brand, Baskin-Robbins, is offering a commemorative Royal Wedding Ice Cream Cake.
The Dunkin’ Donuts Royal Wedding Donut is a heart-shaped donut filled with jelly and topped with vanilla icing and a chocolate drizzle. According to Dunkin’ Brands, the heart “signifies the love between Prince William and Catherine,” while the donut filling represents “how their lives are to be ever-filled with happiness.” Meanwhile, the white frosting is reminiscent of the traditional white wedding gown, and the chocolate drizzle is symbolic of William’s love for chocolate, Dunkin’ Brands said.
The Dunkin’ Donuts Royal Wedding Donut is available at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants throughout the United States from April 24 through the wedding day, April 29, for a suggested retail price of 89c.
The Baskin-Robbins Royal Wedding Ice Cream Cake features vanilla cake, Baskin-Robbins Chocolate Mousse Royale ice cream and more than 30 piped white and blue English roses, and it may be customized with other flavors. The 6-inch round wedding cake is available in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada at participating Baskin-Robbins locations in one-tiered and two-tiered (select locations) cake options starting at $29.99.
