I'm trying and failing (well iv only had one attempt) at getting the cake sponge right. It's a big 10inch tin to feed 50ish. Now I CAN do cupcakes. Are cupcakes acceptable in place of a cake? People have them at weddings?

I think it would def be acceptable. How would you decorate. We're having a v unconventional christening cake, I think go with what you like x

Probably buy some silver cake cases and ice in baby blues, maybe some white with blue toppers of some sort? Just spent £11 on a chuffing cake tin now

I think cup cakes would be fab

That decoration sounds fab I think they'd look lovely.

Definitely acceptable, just do what you like. Have a google, I've seen lots of cupcake towers for christenings.

We went to a Christening that had cupcakes (blue ones) and were set out with the babies name on one and the date of christening on one after every 3 cupcakes (IYSWIM). I don't have photos as forgot my camera! They looked great though.

I love cupcakes! I think they are a fab idea!

I think cupcakes are so much easier, and means everyone will get some as they don't have to wait for the cake to be cut up/packaged up and sent away.

I made cupcakes and a smaller sponge. So we still had a cake to be the focal point, but cupcakes to make sure that everyone who wanted cake could have some! Cupcakes on their own would be fine though.
