My friends Tina & Jason are getting married in a little over a week (8 days to be exact). Why am I posting about their big day? Well maybe it's because I'm in charge of making all of their desserts for the reception. And maybe it's because it's not a small amount of desserts I'm making. And maybe it's because I wonder why I am not considering checking myself into an asylum.
When I had friends over last night, enjoying some creme brulee I made (tasty by the way), I told them I was in charge of making many desserts for the wedding. So I am inquiring of your input as my loyal readers. The list is for 300 people (250 adults and 50 children 10 yrs & below). I have two desserts I will be making: carrot cake & truffle cakes. I was planning on doing some carrot cakes and some carrot cake cupcakes and the truffle cakes are smaller sized cakes (made in large and regular muffin tins). They are going to have hearty appetizers: chicken skewers, stuffed mushrooms, spring rolls, sushi, fruit, vegetables, breads with spreads and one thing more.
I was thinking about making more carrot cake than the truffle cakes (like a 2/3 carrot). Do you think more people would want carrot or the truffle? Also, I was averaging 1.5 desserts for every adult. Do you think that's too much? I was going to make some truffle cakes in large, regular, and mini muffin tins, with the majority of them being in the regular tins--how does that sound? I was thinking of making about four to five carrot cakes and the rest being cupcakes--does that sound about right? Send me your thoughts!
