Preparation steps

Step 1/10
Cut 6 pieces of cling film and 6 pieces of foil into 20cm| 8"long strips and 2.5cm|1" wide. Place the cling film on top of the foil strips.
Step 2/10
Divide the diced melon between the strips. Freeze for at least 2 hours.
Step 3/10
Heat the milk and cream in a pan to a boil. Remove from the heat.
Step 4/10
Whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until creamy, then slowly stir in the hot milk until blended.
Step 5/10
Heat very gently until the mixture thickens, but do not allow to become too hot. Stir in the vanilla. Cool then chill until cold.
Step 6/10
Churn in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer's instructions. Alternatively, pour into a freezerproof container and freeze for 4 hours, beating with a fork 2-3 times, to break up the ice crystals.
Step 7/10
Freeze for 2-3 hours until firm. Allow to soften slightly before spreading.
Step 8/10
Spread the ice cream on top of the frozen melon and roll up with the help of the cling film and foil. Freeze for at least 1 hour.
Step 9/10
Sprinkle coloured sugar pearls on a tray. Remove the frozen rolls from the freezer, remove the plastic wrap and foil and quickly roll in the sugar pearls to coat.
Step 10/10
Cut each roll into 6 equal pieces. Serve immediately.
