Hi, I’m getting married in less than 2 months and still don’t have a clue about my dessert table. In sted of a traditionnal cake, I will be having a dessert table (I will make all the desserts).
We are having 65 guests. I want a small cake (for cake cutting), cupcakes and want a few other choices, but I don’t have a clue what (donuts, cookies, brownies, cakepops, apple tartelletes…). I am looking for desserts that can stay out of the fridge for the evening…..
So any thougths on how many cupckaes?
How many variety of other desserts we should have, and how many pieces of each???

are you making them yourselves?
If you’re working with a bakery…they might be able to give you some options on different kinds and advise you on how many of each.

isabica: Hey girl!
I’m doing this too!! I love baking!
For 65 people I would make 50 cupcakes, you’ll have a small cake and other desserts too. Some people will not have any, some will have 2! I’m having 130 people and making like 95 cupcakes, as well as a small 2 tier cake to cut.
I’m also making a couple pound cakes (chocolate cream cheese, lemon… who knows what else)
my ‘famous’ chocolate chip cookies (yes, I spent last summer making multiple different kinds to find THE best recipe, I have people that will back me up here, LOL)
Thumbprint cream cheese cookies, filled with my homemade blueberry jam
Nanaimo bars… if I can get my grammas recipe down before January… it’s harder than I thought! LOL
Cranberry strudel coffee cake… drool… so good. Family recipe.
PIE! apple, pumpkin, rhubarb, whatever else tickles my fancy at the time.
Cake pops, what fun! My mom got me a cake pop maker and I tested it out with my friends baby shower, yum!
All non-fridge FTW. My mom is making a trifle and gramma is make some cheesecakes, they will be in the fridge. I’m having people rotate and bring out different desserts throughout the night. Can you tell I have a sweet tooth? hehehe.
Look we’re going for

We had cupcakes, apple crostada, cheesecake, chocolate zuccata cake balls, cookies, tiramisu, and creme brulee. All the desserts were able to stay out all night and were a huge hit. They were made by the venue, so can’t help with numbers.
We did order the cupcakes seperately. We had a small cake to cut and a cupcake stand. We bought 5 dozen cupcakes to fill the stand. We had 100 guests, and even though we got less cupcakes than that, because we had so many desserts we had tons of left over cupcakes (probably around half of them!) It worked out well though, because they were a huge hit with family the next day 🙂

Great thanks ladies! I love creme brulee, probably my favorite dessert! Did not think of making these….could they stay on the table for a couple of hours? Same thing for cheese cake, I was thinking of making bite size ones, but wonder if they would be ok on the table….
