Pour over 150 ml sherry and leave overnight. Mix the remaining sherry with the boiling water. Quickly dip each finger biscuit in the sherry mixture and arrange along the sides of the prepared mould. (Spoon a little of the ice cream on the bottom of the mould and stand the biscuits on this.) Mix the ice cream with the sherry and fruit mixture and turn into the mould. Return to the freezer until frozen. To unmould: Turn the mould upside down on a pretty serving platter. Place a hot cloth on the bottom of the mould for a few minutes. Remove the mould and serve.
