Not if you have a set menu and (like you said) get the orders (and deposit IME) the day before. You could even have a Monday...Tuesday.... Wednesday (you get the idea) set menus. Have a couple of choices for entrees and sides.   mimi
I have seen a tubular shaped pink silicone tool at Michaels on the "cake decorating" aisle. Didn't look at closely and have no idea if it has the dies for pressed cookies....but it had an assortment of simple tips. Maybe?   mimi   Search the Wilton site....I think it is made by them.   m.
With what you are proposing there doesn't have to be a set timeline. What is so attractive re catering is that the menu items can be prepped days before...even to the point of filling the single serve containers.
