Directions

Special equipment:
12 (2 by 3-inch) molds
  1. Place puree in bowl and warm over a water bath. Bloom gelatin in cold water. When gelatin is soft, remove from water and add to puree. Stir until gelatin is melted. Whip cream with sugar and vanilla extract to soft peaks. Fold in 1/3 of cream into puree mixture, then fold in remaining cream. Scoop into molds, place cake rounds on top and freeze. Remove from molds, cake side down, and coat with toasted coconut. They will look like little sandy islands.
