Can’t make it across the pond to see the royal baby? No worries.

Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout Maine are helping Americans get into the pomp and circumstance this week with an old-fashioned Munchkin sporting pink, blue and white sprinkles to toast the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Dunkin’s sister brand Baskin-Robbins stays regal with a baby shower cake, decorated with booties. The customizable cake will be offered in the UK for 8.60 pounds, the same weight as Prince William and Kate Middleton’s son, whose name has not been made public. This cake will be decked out in golden chocolate candies and festooned in frosted ribbons and bows.

The limited sweets, available throughout the state, allow the Canton, Mass. company to give customers a “fun and easy way to celebrate the joy and excitement of a new baby,” said Dunkin’ Brands’ CEO Nigel Travis, who was born in England.
