    I think if you’re getting your cakes & things from a bakery it sounds like a steal.

    If you’re getting it from a grocery store or similiar, you could probably do better.

    Instead of 7-10 you could do an assortment of nice cookies- would probably be less expensive than truffles etc? Sounds like a good assortment!

    I would if I was first one to the desert table but people are most likely gonna take more than one item and I think you’ll run out.

    And I’m confused what about 7-10?  You didn’t list a price, i assumes you weren’t getting it.

    I’m getting 725 servings of mini size desserts (3 per person) from Sam’s club for $215. Try there if you wanna save some dough 🙂

    If I were you, I would ask if they could convert the 2 dozen regular size cupcakes into 2 (or 3) dozen mini cupcakes.  They’ll stretch farther that way, since people usually try different things when there’s a buffet.

    @Excited To Bee:  If everyone only took one item from 1-6 you would only have enough for everyone to try one thing. I think that it would be better to not have as much variety and to have more of only a few items. I think that it all sounds good, but if twelve people make a grab for the fruit tarts (that’s only if someone doesn’t take multiples) then everyone else might be disappointed.

    I just want to say that it ALL sounds delicious!  And it’s making me want to go bake cookies or something  🙂

    I wouldn’t do the big cupcakes, instead do all mini.  Also, see if they can slice the cake into half slices. Otherwise not many people will get the chance to try it.

     

    If it’s a buffet style thing, personally I’d prefer to have 2-3 small items vs. one big item (slice of cake)
