The Royal Family and Anglophiles alike are gearing up for the April 29th nuptials of Prince William to his soon-to-be princess Kate Middleton. Invitations have been issued and the final details are falling in to place for the approximate 1,900 guests who will attend the ceremony at Westminster Abbey. And, although schools will be closed and UK residents are taking the day off (thanks to it being a government designated public holiday) worldwide preparation has been ongoing since the couple announced their engagement on November 16th, 2010.
With just under two weeks left before the matrimonial union of William and Kate take place, you would be hard pressed to find a company who isn’t in on the wedding frenzied action, and creating various promotion gifts. Jewelers, cell phone manufacturers, and even Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, have been wracking their brains to come up with innovative ways to remain up to speed with the latest promotion gifts to help commemorate the ostentatious affair.
Since early April, Baskin-Robbins has been offering a chocolate mousse royale ice cream cake, which executive chef, Stan Frankenthaler, says is meant to be reminiscent of a traditional English rose garden. The cake’s flavor is intended as a reminder of Prince William’s affinity for chocolate while the white and sapphire flowers are used to serve as a tribute to Kate’s engagement ring, which previously belonged to the late Princess Diana.
