4. Put the milk, mango puree and gelatin in a pan and heat. Warm until the edges are starting to bubble.
5. Add the Step 4 liquid and grated orange zest to the Step 3 mixture and mix. Put the bowl over a bed of ice water to cool.
6. In another bowl, beat the heavy cream until it's very thick. Add this to the Step 5 mixture and mix.
7. Chill the Step 6 mixture by suspending the bowl over ice water until it's very thick and creamy. (Or you can refrigerate for about 30 minutes.)
8. Pour into molds of your choice, and chill until set in the refrigerator. (The color will vary depending on the color of the mango puree.)
9. Make the berry jelly: Soften and dissolve the gelatin as in Step 2. Put all the ingredients in a pan and heat. (Strain it through a sieve just in case.)
10. Put the bowl with the jelly over ice water to cool. (If the jelly is too warm the mousse will melt).
