In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in orange juice. Heat cream in a medium saucepan until hot; stir in orange zest, sugar and gelatin mixture until gelatin dissolves. Beat egg yolks in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in 1 cup of hot cream mixture and then slowly add yolk-cream mixture back to saucepan. Return pan to heat for about 10 to 12 minutes, stirring constantly until wisps of steam start to rise from the mixture. DO NOT SIMMER. Pour mixture into a stainless steel bowl; set aside to cool to at least 90°F to 100°F.

Whip egg whites to firm peaks and fold into the cool yolk-cream mixture. Divide contents into 12 small molds (6-ounce molds) and refrigerate overnight.
