Mousse: Dissolve gelatine in boiling water. Whip egg whites until stiff and gradually add sugar. Add dissolved gelating, lime juice and food coloring. Pour into molds.

Cream Topping: Heat milk with sugar in saucepan. Beat egg yolks with the tablespoon of milk and cornstarch and gradually add it to saucepan stirring constantly until it comes to a boil. Allow it to cool and then spoon it over the mousse.
