How do you estimate dessert for a wedding?
A simple trick: if you’re working with small, individual desserts (cookies, cupcakes, petit fours, donuts, etc.) in lieu of a typical tiered wedding cake, multiply the number of guests expected by 2.5 to determine the number of desserts you’ll need.
How many servings of dessert do you need for a wedding?
We normally recommend 3-4 mini desserts per person if your guests aren’t eating a slice of cake. As far as options go, you don’t want to overwhelm your guests with too many choices so we typically say only do 2-3 more options than the amount you are allotting each guest.
How much dessert do I need for 50?

How much dessert do I need for 30 guests?

How many cupcakes do I need for a wedding of 150?
I’m having 150 people at my wedding. How many cupcakes should I get? We recommend one standard-sized cupcake per guest. If you prefer minis, we suggest two to three minis per guest.
What goes on a wedding dessert table?
Fill a table with chocolate-dunked goodies like Rice Krispies bars and caramel apples. Or have a chocolate fountain with dippers like fruit skewers, bite-size brownies and soft pretzels (for that delectable salty-sweet combo). And if chocolate brown doesn’t fit your wedding palette, choose a different hue.
How many items should be in a dessert table?

Most of my recipes make 24-32 cupcakes, I wouldn’t do a double batch, unless most of the guests were kids. I’d go with about 36. If I use a cake mix I get 24+ if I use the extender I get about 36.
