Place the gelatine sheets in a bowl of cold water. In a saucepan, heat the 50g of liquid cream with the vanilla. Remove from the heat and add the wrung-out gelatine. Mix and set aside. Whip the cold cream with an electric mixer and add the icing sugar. Pour in the previous mixture and stir gently. Pour into the silicone mould and place in the freezer.

Mix the butter with the icing sugar. Add the almond powder and eggs. Pour into the bottom of the tarts and cook for about ten minutes. Leave to cool.

Cherry confit
100g cherry puree
15g caster sugar
3g pectin
Heat the cherry puree in a saucepan, then add the sugar and pectin mixture previously mixed in a bowl. Bring the mixture to the boil and keep it there for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Leave to cool slightly and then garnish the tarts, smoothing the surface.

Place the vanilla dome on the cherry confit. Cut in half, remove the stones and place the cherries all around. Decorate with a small gold leaf.
