How to Celebrate the Royal Wedding
For those of us who didn’t make the guest list for the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, Dunkin’ Brands has prepared special treats to help you celebrate the occasion in “tasteful” style at home or work.
Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, has unveiled the new Royal Wedding Donut, and sister brand Baskin-Robbins, a leading chain of ice cream specialty shops, has introduced a commemorative Royal Wedding Ice Cream Cake.
When she marries Prince William, Kate Middleton will join the ranks of Princess Grace of Monaco and Queen Rania of Jordan as one of the most beautiful royals in history, according to a survey. Miss Middleton came in third in the poll, beating the late Diana, Princess of Wales who followed in fourth place. (Read: Kate or Diana: Who’s More Beautiful?)
The Dunkin’ Donuts Royal Wedding Donut is a heart-shaped donut filled with jelly and topped with vanilla icing and a chocolate drizzle.
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.
The white frosting is reminiscent of the traditional white wedding gown, and the chocolate drizzle is symbolic of William’s love for chocolate.[ Announcement: Thought Leaders Invited to Write for RMN News Site ]
The Dunkin’ Donuts Royal Wedding Donut is available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants throughout the U.S. from April 24 through the wedding day, April 29, for a suggested retail price of 89 cents.
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 can be customized with your favorite 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.
For another “royal” dessert fit for a king or queen, Baskin-Robbins shops in the United Kingdom will also offer a commemorative flavor called “Sweet Marriage,” a sparkling wine flavored ice cream married with royal ribbons of cherry and apricot, available at participating Baskin-Robbins locations for 2.20 GBP.
