  1. Step 1

    Place the jelly crystals in a large jug. Add star anise, cinnamon and orange rind. Pour over boiling water and stir until jelly crystals dissolve. Set aside for 15 mins to develop the flavours. Stir in ¾ cup (185ml) cold water. Remove star anise, cinnamon and rind and discard.
  2. Step 2

    Place six 345ml serving glasses on an angle in a muffin pan. Place half the raspberries and blueberries in the glasses. Divide the jelly mixture evenly among the glasses. Place in the fridge for 4 hours or until the jelly is set.
  3. Step 3

    Divide the custard evenly among glasses and top with cream. Sprinkle with the remaining raspberries and blueberries. Decorate with the gold leaf, if using, and serve immediately.
