1. Allow sherbet and ice cream to soften slightly before making each layer of the dish.


2. For first layer, lay 2-quart brandy snifter on side.

3. Press raspberry sherbet evenly over side of snifter, using back of a wooden spoon.

4. Lay snifter on side in freezer, propping it so it won't roll, and freeze until sherbet is firm-€”about 1 hour.

6. For third layer, press lime sherbet on orange sherbet and freeze.

7. Stand snifter upright and fill with ice cream for the fourth layer.
