Hi All,
I'm doing cupcakes for a wedding and the bride is asking for help figuring out how many cupcakes to order. I had a previous bride request 275 for an RSVP of 175 because she swore that she always tried one of each type at weddings she attended. (I was also a guest at the wedding, and there were 6 dozen cupcakes leftover)
How do you determine how many to suggest?!

We are doing a birthday tomorrow and they ordered 200 for the 200 guests. Three flavors mocha, zesty lemon and Very orange. Guests choose one to go with their dessert. Id stick to one per person. It just makes it easier. Or two per person. Most weddings Ive seen guests take theirs home or to their hotel room because they were full from food and drinks. So go with 1 or 2 each..
