How do you calculate dessert buffet?
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 do you add height to a buffet table?
Add risers to your table for the height. Risers include cardboard boxes, wooden blocks, racks, centerpieces and even vases. Different sizes of wooden blocks can help you place your food at different heights. Make sure that they are sturdy enough to support the food.
How many desserts do I need for a dessert table?
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 do you display desserts?
Display desserts in a prominent location. Your dessert bar should be placed in a prominent location. A large table, for instance, will draw attention to guests. Place the table in a well-lit location near the bar for the best traffic. Be sure to cover the table with linens that coordinate with your decor.
How do you keep dessert cold on a dessert table?
Use a large bucket of ice cubes or even dry ice to hold frozen desserts until they are eaten. You can position ice cream sandwiches, popsicles and other frozen sweets in the ice. The ice will keep them cold and should last long enough for the dessert session.
