!. choose the container (bombe or plain ole bowl.
2. Line bowl with plastic wrap
3. cut cake into strips or wedges to line the pan/bowl, leaving the center open.
4. Fill center with whatever you want - mousse, ice cream, sherbet,
5. place a cut round on top. It's important that this be as large as the bowl (to the edge). I try to actually get the round into the bowl, so your previous lining would have needed to leave space for it. This becomes the base of the bombe.
6. Wrap in plastic film and chill to firm everything up.
7. Take of of fridge, unwrap and take out of bowl. The plastic film should make it easy to get out of the bowl.
8. Frost or pour ganache over.
9. Eat.
10. Send me some.

Do you know how cute these things are with white cake and pink sorbet with a few chocolate chips studded in and iced in green frosting? It looks like watermelon when cut.
