In a large bowl, mix the ice cream with the nuts and cherries. Transfer into cake silicon rubber mould, and smooth over the top.

For the ganache topping, break the chocolate into pieces and place in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water to melt.

Once melted remove from heat and stir in the cream.

Leave to cool slightly.

To serve, remove the frozen ice-cream cake from freezer.

Pour the chocolate ganache on top of the cake and spread to cover leaving a thin rim around the edge to show the ice-cream cake underneath.
