Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens.
Remove from heat and stir in gelatin.
Stir until dissolved.
Add vanilla.
Fold in whipped cream.
Fill tiny cream puffs with this Bavarian Creme mixture.
Combine 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup water and 1/4, teaspoon cream of tartar.
Bring to a boil and sim- mer very slowly until light tan in color.
Remove from heat, but keep hot.
Place the pastry ring on a large serving dish.
Dip the bottoms of the filled cream puffs in the hot syrup and place a row of them around the outside edge of the pastry ring.
Place a second row of puffs on top of the first row, over the spaces be- tween the puffs.

This may be garnished with rosettes of whipped cream as a final flourish.
