2. Place the first disc in the cavity you have made from it, to line the base.

Brush the inside with rum.

Place a generous layer of ice cream, then cover with another disc of panettone.

Repeat with the other flavor of ice cream until the entire cavity is filled.

Finally, brush the inside of the shell as well and arrange it, making it stick well to the cake.
