i think it sounds delicious. just curious, why would it not be children friendly? cause they’re not the simplest? i think children could eat any of that except the tiramisu because of the alcohol..

if you want something very kiddy, maybe some rice krispy treats?

I think your desserts sound really yummy.

I have 2 kids and they would be happy with a lot of those dishes. 

Having fresh fruit is also a great idea. I’m sure someone will be more than happy to do that for you.

@clairebbbear:  I think that dessert menu sounds divine! Kids tend to have simple tastes, so I think they’d probably like something that is either plain chocolate or plain vanilla. Maybe just a simple cake for them?

Jelly, Cup cakes, lamingtons, biscuits/cookies (mars bar or the like), rocky road, pikelets with cream, cake pops, ginger bread men and toffee apples.

@clairebbbear:  can’t go wrong with homemade ice cream! 

Does your venue allow you to bring your own sweets?

@clairebbbear:  haha I was going to suggest chocolate crackles but thought that might be going too far 🙂

I think for picky kids I would suggest plain brownies (no nuts), chocolate chip cookies, or M&M cookies. Most kids I know would eat those.

All of those sound good! Maybe individual pavlovas with berries/berry sauce?

Since the wedding is fairly informal, have you thought about the soccer ball ice cream maker?  You put all the mix in it, and as its kicked around, it is churned.  Alot of fun, especially at that age.  You can buy it through LL Bean.

I think it sounds great! My only concern would be the individual panna cottas and chocolate mousses, feels like they will take tons of storage room! Oh, and some fruit would probably be appreciated by anyone that’s on a diet. 

As for the kids, I would go for brownies or cinnamon buns.
