Fill the ring mold with enough ice cream that only 1/4 to 1/2-inch is left at the top of the ring mold. It is preferable to allow this to set in the freezer overnight. Once set, pour the room temp chocolate glaze on top and fill the remaining 1/4 to 1/2-inch of the mold. You may decorate the cake by wrapping it in chocolate, or simply garnish with fresh raspberries.
