I am in charge of the luncheon that follows the Community Lenten Service on Ash Wednesday. We anticipate between 125 and 150 people.

I will be serving salad cold plates (chicken or tuna salad, cole slaw, pasta salad, cottage cheese with pineapple ring, 3 bean and pickled beet salad and congealed salad with crackers and tea) and plan to do mini cupcakes for dessert (just a simple swirl of icing, no deco).

I will buy some sugar free ones at Publix as a lot of the attendees are elderly and some of them have to watch their sugar. The rest will be vanilla butter cake and vanilla frosting.

I'm not sure if I should plan on 2 mini cupcakes per person or 3?

I wouldn't think everybody would eat 3 so if it were me I would multiply the # of expected people by 2.5 and go with that.

OK, wait - I just re-read your OP and if most of the people are elderly, then I'd go with 2.

I totally agree! Although....old people like to wrap food up in napkins and take it home, you might want to add a few more! haha

Definitely 2. Possibly 2.5 or 3.
