How Much Dessert Should I Make for Easter?
Every group is different, so this answer can vary depending on your crowd. If you’re hosting a familiar group, then you likely know how many will want just a small serving dessert and how many will want a little bit of everything.
At a minimum, count on one serving per person. I usually plan for two servings per person so I make sure everyone is happily satisfied. If you don’t want the leftovers, no doubt one of your guests will be happy to take them!
Tips for Planning Your Easter Dessert Menu
Any time you’re hosting a meal, there are things to keep in mind to make things as smooth and stress-free as possible!
- Plan ahead. Know what you’re going to make in plenty of time to get all your ingredients and plan when you’ll bake.
- Know your guests. Make sure you’re aware of any dietary restrictions and adjust accordingly.
- Focus on seasonal flavors. Many people associate Easter with the arrival of spring, so offer desserts that reflect the season.
- Make it pretty! We eat with our eyes, so take care to make your desserts look their best. And if you have pretty serving pieces and dessert plates, use those to make the occasion even more special.
