Things You Need To Know When Creating A Candy Buffet

So, you are browsing the candy by color category at BulkCandyStore.com and a thought bubble  pops over your head – How much candy do I need for this event? Well, The general consensus among party planners is that you need approximately eight ounces of candy per guest. So lets do the math – if 25 party goers RSVP yes to your event,  then you will need  200 ounces of candy or 12.5 pounds – that’s 25 people, times 8 OZs of candy equals 200 OZs. Divide the 200 ounces by 16 ’cause 16 oz = 1lb and you will need to buy 12.5 lbs of candy. (I bet you did not know that math was this sweet:) Now, I know some of your guests may take more than 8 ounces, but if your friends are like mine, some will be watching their weight, so they will take less or they may leave the delicious candy treats behind – yes, I did take that into account – it all balances out.

Cake Pop Kits are Here!

 

cake popsYes, cake pops are all the rage, but how did they come to be? The concept of a ball of sweet cake is actually not new, I suspect that some inspiration was derived from donut holes, which are sweet dough balls glazed or coated with glaze or cinnamon and sugar crumb. Donut holes; however, are considered more of a breakfast item with only a basic presentation quality. They are yummy and fun to eat, but a tray of donut holes just doesn’t have that “wow” factor we all strive for, especially when selecting party foods. Continue reading
