    Soft Custard (below)
    1 cup whipping (heavy) cream
    2 tablespoons powdered sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 cup rum

    Just before serving, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla in chilled medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Gently stir 1 cup of the whipped cream, the rum and food color into custard.

Stir in vanilla. Place saucepan in cold water until custard is cool. (If custard curdles, beat vigorously with hand beater until smooth.)
