How many cake pops should I order?

We are often asked how many cake pops should be ordered per guest. If the cake pops are being used as a favor, we suggest one per person and always a couple of extra “just in case.” If the cake pops are being used as a dessert, we suggest 1.5 pops per person. (which becomes interesting if you have an odd number of guests!).
