Let it boil for about 5 minutes, then pass it through a sieve. Let it boil again while you soak the gelatine, then take the pot off the cooking plate and solve the gelatine in the brew.

Before the tamarillo purée is completely cooled down stir in the yoghourt. Whisk the cream with the rest of the sugar stiff and stir it also in the tamarillo purée.

For soaking mix sugar, water and lime juice and let it boil for about 2 to 3 minutes. While it cools down stir in the rum.

Cut circles out of the sponge cake (7.5 cm diameter) and put them into the jars, then soak them. Divide the tamarillo cream all over the sponge base and flatten it, then let it firm up in the fridge.

Crumble the macarons or the baiser and sprinkle it over the dessert, decorate it with mint and serve it.
