I've been asked by my aunt to provide desserts enough to feed 200 people! I've never ever done even close to this many desserts. My aunt wants cookies, petit fours and cakes and whatever else I think of although I am hoping to talk her into cupcakes instead of petit fours. She is unsure how many pieces she wants total. Its for a holiday party where other hourdourves will be served. How much should I plan for? Is 100 servings of each too much or too little?
My first question is are you being paid for any of this???? If not..I would hope you get at least the ingredients paid for..Petit fours take a tremendous amount of time so I would maybe do something easier....
100 of each is probably about right. The petit fours should be at least $6 EACH. If you take the order, you'll find out why.
She is paying for ingredients. I am really going to try to talk her into cupcakes instead of petit fours. So 100 servings of each sounds good?
I would just tell her you don't have the time for petit fours or even mini cakes...that cupcakes, cookies, fudge, larger cakes etc would be fine. Yes, petit fours are very time consuming...so, be good to yourself and don't overwhelm yourself - say no...and yes to things you are confident in doing...you are doing her a favor afterall!
