Sit the cauliflower on the ring, head downwards. It doesn't matter if the end is slighty above the water level.

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
