Pour the water into a small mixing bowl or liquid measuring cup. Sprinkle the gelatin over the water; stir to mix. Let stand until softened, about 15 minutes. While gelatin is activating, put 1½ cups of the cream, yogurt, mascarpone, vanilla and honey in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk to combine; reserve. Pour the remaining cream and sugar into a small saucepan. Set over medium heat; whisk to dissolve sugar. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Once the cream/sugar mixture has reached a simmer, stir in the water/gelatin mixture. Put the combined mixture into the jar of your Cuisinart® PowerEdge® 1000 Watt Blender. Add the cream/yogurt/mascarpone mixture. Run on Low for 20 seconds. Divide the blended mixture among eight 5-ounce ramekins. Chill overnight.
