hello everyone. I have an order for a MIXTURE-variety of pastries for a bar Mitzvah. It's not 1 cake- but a mix of 6 different desserts to be put as platters on tables, for 200 people.
How do you calculate how much of each recipe I need? Is there a standard calculation somewhere?
Also- do you charge for this sort of baking also per "slice"?
thank you to everyone.
I think if you tell us the kind of desserts you are making it may be easier for us to help you
thank you- here is what i have to make for them: carrot cake squares, banana cake squares, flourless green tea cake squares, sour cream cake squares, rugelach, and 2 different cookies (black and white and maybe sugar cookies- my choice really)...
that's the list. thank you so much!!!! I just don't think each person will have EVERY one of those things...
what foxy said, plus I am assuming they are having a large dinner, also?
A general rule of thumb is to figure 3 pcs per person if there is a large dinner and 5-6 pcs if the dessert bar is the only food. This also depends on what the desserts are and how big they are.
