How many cupcakes per person? - Page 2

post #16 of 20

not to mention that's why it's such a painstaking decision to make

 

generally a bride does not want to over buy at all too costly

 

but sure they don't want to run out either usually

 

but some do intentionally run out because they don't wanna buy enough in the first place

 

they just want a cake for the pictures mostly

 

if it's the sloppy joes and you run out that's a problem

 

in catering you can still still get popped for extra servings served

 

for a cake it's all decided in advance and let the crumb$ fall where they may huh

 

there's cultured and un-cultured icon_lol.gif

If you are just doing the decorating, just decorate however many cupcakes they bake.  It's up to them to decide how many servings they wish to provide.

In my Italian family ,you best have more lmao !!!!

 

K8 - I agree it is up to the bride and what her budget is. I have worked with some of chefs and they do that mind game all the time, it makes you go home thinking of how badly you want to taste more and you usually end up with more customers because of that. Of course to me this was insane because I am Italian and we always cook for an army even if it is a dinner for 2 lol.

omg, iz

 

there's only two of us now

 

two

 

it's really an art form in itself to cook for one + one

 

i love quantity cooking almost as much as baking

 

I freeze a lot of portions

a chef is kind of the antithesis of a good boat captain

 

chefs plant icebergs that captains live to avoid

 

where on your plate all you see is this amazing small portion

 

that packs so much wallop deep down inside

 

you wake up in the morning looking pathetically for some in the frig

sorry op i'm way off topic--please forgive me

 

over and out
