    we’re doing the same thing. I am baking 7 pies, plus a couple cheesecakes. I am enlisting the rest of the fam to make another 13 or so pies. Then, I am baking all the favors (cake pops, pie pops, or cookies). It’ll be fun!

    I think it is doable but please for your own sanity make ahead and freeze everything you can. Cupcakes can be done three days before and frozen in tupperware w/o loss of taste.  Having been a bridesmaid helping many bride friends do this the day before it can be a nightmare. With great planning it is very doable.  Hope it goes well.  PS make sure you have a backup mixer in case yours burns up. Happened to us in middle of night 8 hrs b4 wedding. We were running late. It was a catastrophe.

    Sounds totally do-able for 70 people. You could make the cookie dough plenty ahead of time, then freeze it in a tube-shape, and cut slices and bake the day before or so. Also naked cupcakes are a great idea, I hate frosting and everyone prefers a different amount, and it saves you that work!
