My lovely uncle has just died suddenly and I am thinking of doing a batch of cupcakes for the funeral in his beloved "Everton" football club colours (he's having the Everton theme played as his coffin is brought in to the crematorium). The family are having a traditional wake for him in a local pub so there will be a big buffet table. Do you think it would be appropriate to do cupcakes for this occasion? I am going to see his widow tomorrow and would ask her if she wouldn't mind of course but I'm not sure whether even to do this? Unsure as to whether it's inappropriate and would really welcome your advice/opinion?

Many thanks, Beth x

Absolutely! They are so easy to serve, perfect for that type of gathering.

We served Christmas Cookies at my mother's funeral...she died shortly before Christmas several years ago. We all had such good memories of going to her house and baking Christmas cookies that it became a tradition. So your idea of serving cupcakes in the team colors sounds your uncle would love it...
