Didn’t make the guest list for the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton? Neither did we, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be celebrating the special occasion in “tasteful” Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins style. Inspired by Dunkin’ Brands CEO and Dunkin’ Donuts President Nigel Travis, a dual U.S. and British citizen who was born and raised in Woodford, Essex, Dunkin’ Donuts is introducing a special, limited edition Royal Wedding Donut, while Baskin-Robbins is celebrating with a Royal Wedding Ice Cream Cake.
The Dunkin’ Donuts Royal Wedding Donut
Created in honor of the Royal couple, the Royal Wedding Donut will be available in participating U.S. Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants from April 24 through the wedding day, April 29. When developing the Royal Wedding Donut, Dunkin’ Donuts’ Executive Chef, Stan Frankenthaler and his culinary team kept both wedding traditions and the couple’s favorite flavors in mind.
For that reason, the team couldn’t resist making a heart-shaped glazed donut that’s filled with jelly. The heart signifies the love between Prince William and Catherine, and the donut is filled with jelly to represent how their lives are to be ever-filled with happiness. In honor of the traditional white wedding gown, the donut is topped with white frosting, but adds a modern twist with the chocolate drizzle, in celebration of William’s love for chocolate.
The Baskin-Robbins Royal Wedding Ice Cream Cake
Can’t imagine celebrating the Royal Wedding without a cake? Neither could our sister brand, Baskin-Robbins, who is also putting their sweet spin on the Royal Wedding festivities. Specially designed by Baskin-Robbins’ Executive Pastry Chef, Christopher Boos, the Royal Wedding Ice Cream Cake features vanilla cake, Baskin-Robbins Chocolate Mousse Royale ice cream and has more than 30 piped white and blue English roses. The cake was designed to be reminiscent of an English garden, inspired by the colorful gardens of the Cotswolds and can be customized with your favorite ice cream flavors.
The six 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 (U.S. suggested retail price). It’s strongly recommended that guests order this cake in advance at their local Baskin-Robbins.
