  1.  Preheat the oven to 160C/140C (fan)/gas mark 3. Grease and line a 15cm wide cake tin in preparation.
  2. Combine the sponge ingredients in a bowl and whisk until well combined. Transfer to the prepared cake tin and bake in the oven for 50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  3.  Whisk together the ice cream and chopped strawberries. Pour the mixture into a pyrex bowl approximately 15cm wide. Top with the sponge cake and wrap the bowl in some cling film before freezing overnight.
  4. Shortly before serving, make the topping by breaking up the white chocolate into a pan. Add the cream and food colouring and gently heat until well combined. Leave to cool slightly.
  5. Remove the ice cream cake from the freezer and dip the bowl into a pan of hot water to release. Tip the cake onto a plate and pour the pink chocolate ganache over the top. Serve immediately.
