    I feel like you should go for less variety on the dessert bar, so you can offer more of what you do have.  If you are set on keeping the variety, maybe instead of mini-sized, you can get them made in bite-size (except the pies, I don’t know how well that would work).

    I wouldn’t necessarily say order more (even though that’s what bite-sizing would be), because there will probably be people watching their waistlines and other such dietary restrictions, but it seems pretty unfair to have such a wide variety, but only 12 of some things.  If you happen to be the last person through and had your heart set on something… tough luck. 🙁

    The items you have sound awesome, but I figure there are probably people who wouldn’t want anything that rich.  I think the local grocery sells a pack of 50 cookies for 7 or 8 dollars, or maybe you could enlist the aid of friends/family to bake some.

    I asked our caterer to cut everything in half so we would have “twice as much”, since I figured people would rather have lots of little things than one giant thing anyhow. All our desserts were still big. Also, we had TONS left over. We had 100 people, ~75 pieces of cake, and I think ~6 dozen other dessert items.

    @Irishb: I’m a dessert fiend.  If it came to dessert or Fiance, hopefully I’d choose Fiance.  Tongue out

    Food, I’m picky about.  Dessert, I’ll try almost anything.  Where I used to work has a yearly company picnic.  When I saw the map, “Dessert tent” caught my eye and was all I could talk about for a week (FI:  What day is yours?  I’m on Friday.  Me:  DESSERT TENT.).  I’d much rather have tiny things I can try multiples of than larger things I can have one of (either due to internal or social limitations).

    I guess another concern I’d have with the amounts/sizing is if you have someone that wants to try something and they don’t like it, now you’ve got someone who didn’t like it, someone who wanted it, and a wasted dessert.  So I guess this would be another argument for bite-sizing.  I guess your guests could be mature enough to offer to split things among themselves, but I don’t normally trust people to be mature.

    If I added it up correctly, I’m coming up with 154 dessert items in addition to what you are already serving as a “plate” dessert (the pumpkin spice cake-yum).   Idk, but that sounds like enough to me.  Especially since people are so full from dinner, cocktails, then the dessert you already served.  And you are serving filling desserts, it’s not like it’s 1 truffle or something. I think it’s more than fine. You have to know that some people don’t even hit the dessert table if they are watching their sugar, ect.

    ETA: Damn, I added it up and you already put the total on there lol….

    I think it’s plenty.  You’re already giving each person a piece of cake and then having additional dessert on top of that, I think there will be quite a few people who won’t have more dessert so I think there will be enough for everyone.

    I don’t think you need more pieces, but I think you need less options with more of each options.  Having 12 of any one item is too low.  Sorry.
