Combine the sugar, cream, butter, and egg yolks over medium heat in a heavy, 2-quart saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly (don't let it burn or scorch). Let boil for 2 minutes, then strain into a bowl over ice.
When cool, whisk in the rest of the ingredients except the cream and egg whites. In 2 separate bowls whip the cream and whites until stiff. Gently fold the cream, then the egg whites, into the mixture. Fill champagne or wine glasses with the mousse, cover with plastic film., and let chill for 6 hours or more. When ready to serve, top with dabs of sweetened, whipped cream to which a little grated orange peel and a good dash of Grand Marnier has been added.
