Let Them Eat Cinnamon Buns: Offbeat Bride talks to the New York Times about wedding cake alternatives #In the news#cake alternative#candy buffet June 15 | Offbeat Editors offbeatbride Schlopp with a Cherry on Top! Photo by Seattle's Ben Blood Ariel was quoted in a New York Times article that just published today, Let Them Eat Cinnamon Buns: Ariel Meadow Stallings, the founder and publisher of Offbeat Bride, a wedding blog, said, "It's not an anti-cake movement, it's more like: If you're going to spend a fortune to feed your guests at your wedding, you might as well feed them something you're going to really enjoy, and that they're going to really enjoy." She has featured ceremonies in which candied apples, churros and even schlopp, a Dr. Seuss-inspired parfait, take the place of the cake. Ms. Stallings said the couples' challenge is making less formal substitutions look special. Ms. Stallings added, "Candy buffets can be really colorful, and really playful, and have a real sense of fun."
