    Everyone is celebrating the birth of the royal baby, both at home and across the pond. Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins have introduced celebratory treats to welcome the new royal into the world.

    Dunkin' Donuts is recognizing the royal birth by rolling out the Royal Munchkin, an old-fashioned donut hole dipped in pink, blue and white sprinkles to represent baby colors, according to a release.

    The special-edition munchkin will be available in 25-count and 50-count boxes for a limited time this week.

    Baskin-Robbins will celebrate with a festive Baby Shower Cake, available in stores year round. The cake is designed with baby booties and can be created in any combination of ice cream and cake flavors.

    Participating Baskin-Robbins locations in the U.K. are offering a signature Royal Baby ice cream cake.

    A combination of caramel chocolate crunch ice cream and chocolate cake, the Royal Baby cake is decorated with a chocolate frosting ribbon, a white chocolate bow and gold chocolate candies.

    The cake will  be priced at £8.60, the weight of the royal baby.

    In 2011, Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins rolled out celebratory desserts in honor of William and Kate's royal wedding.

    "We offer our heartfelt congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the newest addition to the Royal Family," said Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis.
