vdasilva:  I think it’s probably too much, personally.  I don’t think people will eat that much.

vdasilva:  I think that’s too much. Generally rule of thumb in catering is 1 per plus 5% some people won’t have a cookie, some will have 5. If you are having 4 kinds of cookie, I’d do 80% of your final number for each cookie, like I said, not everyone will have one, or some may only have two kinds etc. The Samosas (They are like god’s gift to the world), are probably not going to be eaten by everyone, not everyone loves sweet and savoury together and curry flavour lingers. 

I would do a dessert table following dinner and THEN 30 minutes before the night is over, bust out the samosas as your midnight snack!!! Hopefully with Tamarind sauce….omg I just want to go buy 55 samosas right now…

I agree, you have too much with cake and 280 cookies… what about cutting it down a bit and adding fruit?  (love the samosas idea)
