Sorbets are suitable for the inside of these ice cream balls, but not on the outside as they melt more quickly.

Method

  1. To make an ice cream ball firstly you need to create the centre. Place a sheet of small demispheres on a freezerproof board and fill with the required flavour of ice cream or sorbet (churned so that it is not completely solid and can be poured into the moulds). You will need to fill 2 to make one ball. Smooth the surface with a spatula, so that it is completely flat. Place in the freezer.
  2. Once these are completely frozen, heat the spatula with some boiling water then thoroughly dry it. If you leave the spatula wet then there will be ice between the layer. Slightly melt the surface of the demispheres and unmould one half and join together to form a sphere. Try not to handle them too much as they will melt.
  3. Put a sheet of baking parchment or greaseproof paper on a freezerproof board and place the sphere on top. Return to the freezer.
  4. For the outside, if you cannot get hold of silicone moulds use aluminium ones lined with clingfilm – the clingfilm will make it easy to turn the ice cream out. With silicone moulds you can just flip the ice cream out. You will need 2 moulds per layer.
  5. Place one of the moulds on a freezerproof board. Do exactly the same as before with a thickly churned mix and almost fill the mould then drop in the small frozen centre. Ours is off-centre, but you can do as you wish. Approximately half of it should be sticking out of the top.
  6. When this has completely frozen, churn some more of your mix and almost fill the second mould. Remove the mould from the frozen section then, being careful to align the two halves, place the frozen half with the small sphere sticking out on top of the second mould, creating a sphere. Return to the freezer.
  7. Once completely frozen unmould. You may need to slice a tiny portion of the bottom to prevent your creation from rolling away. Place in the freezer until ready to serve.
