I am cooking a dessert for a 6 yr old, 11 yr old and 17 year old - Any Ideas?!

Question: I am cooking a dessert for a 6 yr old, 11 yr old and 17 year old - Any Ideas!?
I am making Eton Mess for the adults, but think this is a bit too rich for the children - any suggestions that I can do, as far as I am aware they have no allergies!. I can cook so simple recipes are a doddle as are complicated (although don't suggest souffle!)

Any ideas please!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

I'm sure the oldest one would appreciate the Eton Mess and also appreciate being treated as an adult!. For the others, what about a bowl of ice crem and providing them a selection of 'spinkles' - jelly beans, chocolate buttons, hundreds and thousands and the like!? Www@FoodAQ@Com

Baked Ice Cream

3 eggs
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
Ice Cream of Choice

Separate egg whites and put in a bowl!.
Add cream of tartar, salt and vanilla extract
Whisk until mixture stands up in stiff peaks
Slowly add sugar while whisking
Whisk until meringue mixture is thick and glossy
Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper
Put cookies on sheet with gaps in between
Place small scoop of Ice Cream in center of cookies
Spoon Meringue mixture over ice cream totally covering the Ice Cream
Bake for 1 hour at 110 degrees Celsius(225 Farenheight)
Make sure Meringues dont go brownWww@FoodAQ@Com

Eton Mess: YUM

Give them jelly and cream for pudding: you know what kids are like!. Mind you, the 17 year old might want something a bit more exotic!. You could do a rhubarb and blackberry crumble, seeming as it's that time of year!. Utterly delicious, and quick to make!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

i made a nice icecream sundae for a big kid last night (hes 28)!. I put white chocolate icecream in the cup and made a squishy hole in the middle so I could fill it up with broken up chocolate muffin peaces and chocolate sauce!. then whipped cream on top and chocolate sprinkles!. And just to make it even more amazing I put broken up pieces of kinder bueno on top!.

He said it was yum yum yum!. I named it the Cocoa Sunday after my cat!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

I agree that calling a 17-yr-old a "child" would be insulting, and they might prefer the dessert you made for the adults!. But, brownies, cookies or Do-It-Yourself Sundaes for the other 2 should be perfect - and you might ask the teenager which dessert they prefer!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Everyone Likes ice cream - even my grandmother!. Maybe make them a Ice Cream float!. \
You will need:

Half a banana per person!. ( cut up )
Chocolate Sauce

More Chocolate Sauce

17 isn't really a child and the teen will probably be offended to be served a different dessert!.!.!.!.why not offer banana splits, or plain ice cream!? Or all the small kids I know like trifle!.!.!.!.that's only cream, jelly and fruit with some custard and trifle sponge!. I mean!.!.!.the great recipe the girl gives above would hardly suit someone who is nearly 18 would it!? Faces out of fruit!!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

put some food colouring in the bottom of the serving dish and pour in angel delight!. when it is ready to be served the children can stir it up and it 'magically' changes colour!! the little one will love it anyway!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
