Dissolve the gelatine in cold water a few minutes. Steam rice in 1 cup boiling water until half done; drain off water and add milk in its place and cook until the rice is soft. Add sugar, dissolved gelatine and vanilla and cool, then add whipped cream, pack in a mould and put on ice 2 hours. Decorate the pudding with maraschino cherries, or Glaced orange. Serve with either fruit or Chocolate Sauce.
