Pour the boiling water into a large bowl. Add the gelatin and cinnamon, and stir for at least 2 minutes, until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
Drain pineapple, reserving the juice. Add enough ice (or cold water) to the juice to measure 1½ cups. Add to the gelatin mixture and stir until the ice is completely melted.
Refrigerate for about 45 minutes, or until the gelatin is slightly thickened (to the consistency of unbeaten egg whites).
Reserve ¼ cup each of the pineapple and orange. Add remaining pineapple and oranges to gelatin. Pour mixture into a 1½-quart serving bowl.
Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm. Garnish with the reserved pineapple and oranges, and serve.
