Planning an Eco-Indie Wedding

Food: Gorgeous Desserts from Naomi, the Cupcake Ninja

Posted on: February 23, 2009

One of the only things that my fiance and I have been disagreeing about is dessert for our wedding. He wants to have a traditional, three-tier wedding cake – I want to go more casual and have a cupcake tower.

I’ve shown him oodles of fantastic pictures of cupcakes, designed both for weddings and other special events, but he still hasn’t warmed up to the idea. His compromise is to have both, which is a great idea, but I doubt we will be able to afford it. I’ve been trying to talk him into a cupcake tower with a small, single tier cake at the top, but he’s still resisting.

When I think of cupcakes, one of the first innovative artists that comes to mind is Australia’s “cupcake ninja” – Naomi. Having come across her work years ago on flickr, I’m consistently oooh-ing and aaah-ing over every new creation she shares online.

Take a look!

I so wish she was closer to the United States – I’d hire in a heartbeat!

Beautifully done. I love the wedding cupcake tiers!! Definitely sweets to keep in mind for any occasion.

They are painfully cool. 🙂

Hey Victoria! I love these cupcakes… such a bummer she is in Austrailia! I like your idea of non traditional… although I have seen some fun cakes on birch sticks that are awesome… all at different levels .. might be a fun idea since you are getting married in a park!
