I have been asked to design a dessert table for 100 people this weekend. I'm going to have 3" cookies, mini cupcakes, cake truffles, cream cheese mints, maybe some candy. I have no idea how many desserts to make. Has anyone done this before? How many per person do you think?

TIA

I usually go with about 3-5 pieces per person. It depends on how much other food they are planning to have...but that's usually my comfort zone....HTH

I usually follow the same. I'm doing two dessert tables in the next two weeks. One is going at the lower end (3 pieces per person) because there will be a full meal before, plus cake. The other is going toward the higher end (6 pieces per person) because there will be no other food.

Agree with the 3-5, if there will be other food, but also because the cookies are somewhat big (3" is more than "a bite").

And remember, this doesnt' mean 3-5 cookies per person AND 3-5 mini cupcakes, etc. It means 3-5 total pieces per person (had to explain this recently, so thought I'd just throw it out there).
