    What exactly is a cheese roll? Is it sweet?

    I love Porto’s!  I think you should get a variety of pastries in case you have guests who don’t like cheese (or are lactose intolerant).  They’re all yummy at Porto’s… especially the GUAVA!  Wink

    Serve whatever dessert you want. Cake/cupcakes are not a requirement if you don’t want them and prefer something else instead.

    Leave them whole. If size is a concern, when you order them, ask if they can be made smaller. Either way, most people don’t take home leftover desserts if the portion is too large.

    Just the cheese rolls are enough and you don’t need to add anything else.

    @Ms. Figales:Have you ever been there when they bring out the trays of samples?  The put them in those white cupcake type liners.  The last time I was there they did a tray of cheese rolls and guava rolls – they were cut in half and I really think that’s the PERFECT size for what you are wanting to do.  I like the option of 2 different things because people will probably take one of each (even though, I’m not a big guava fan – you really can’t beat the cheese rolls!).  Portos also does a mini-dessert sampler.  How much is your budget for dessert?

    @Ms. Figales: I’ve been going to Portos for years and have surprisingly never tried their Cuban cake (I can’t get past the triple chocolate mousse cake!) 😉

    I think you are on the right track getting the sheet cakes and then a round, if you want to display it.  We are doing the same thing, but with ice cream cakes (also super affordable).

    I love the idea of incorporating cheese rolls into your dessert table.  I do think that people will want at least one of each (piece of cake and cheese roll).

    If you end up with 175 guests (keep in mind, your final count may end up lower), 1 full sheet, plus the half sheet plus the round will be more than enough for the cake.

    If you still have room in your budget for cheese rolls – I’d do 75 rolls and see if they can cut and put them in those white cupcake cups for you.  I’d think that would be more than enough.  I’d think you’d be slightly over on cake, but the cheese rolls will probably disappear throughout the night.  And, since you are doing cake – I’d skip the guava rolls, personally (but, again – remember that I don’t like them, so I’m biased!) 😉

    One more thought – if you decide to do cake – you could really skip the cheese rolls all together.  They are really an ‘added’ thing.  OR, what I would do – is have them for when the party is winding to an end…. kind of a take home ‘snack’ to end the night.

    I. Love. Porto’s.  I agree with everyone else – the guava rolls are awesome too!  I actually love those better than the cheese ones.  Now I’m hungry…

    @Ms. Figales:

    I am planning a wedding for my sister and am trying to track down the tree branch cupcake stand for rent or purchase but have hit a brick wall. Where might one find these stands?

    Thanks Kris
