To Make Sponge Cake: Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Butter and flour a 9-inch springform pan. In large bowl, with a mixer on high speed, beat eggs and sugar until very thick and pale yellow, 5 to 8 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together cake flour, baking powder, and salt; sift over the egg mixture. Gently fold in flour mixture just until incorporated. Gently fold in vanilla. Pour batter into pan and spread it out to the edges. Bake until top of cake springs back when lightly pressed in the center, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove pan rim and cool cake on a wire rack.
Replace pan rim around cake. but do not close. Line inside of pan rim with strips of parchment or waxed paper wide enough to come above top of rim (about 3 inches wide); tighten rim around cake. Soften ice cream, and spread over cake smoothing the top. Place plastic wrap directly on surface of ice cream. Freeze until firm, at least 8 hours and up to 2 days.
To Make Glaze: Bring about 2 inches of water to a boil in a saucepan or the bottom of a double boiler; remove from heat. Combine chocolate, cream, and corn syrup in a heatproof bowl or in the top of a double boiler. Set bowl over hot water and let stand, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth, about 15 minutes. Let glaze cool until thickened but still fluid enough to spread easily, about 20 minutes.
Take cake from freezer and remove plastic wrap. Spread room temperature glaze evenly over the top, smoothing surface. Return cake to freezer until glaze is set, about 20 minutes or up to 1 day. Once glaze is set, you may cover again with plastic wrap.
To serve, remove cake from freezer and let stand 5 to 10 minutes. Remove plastic wrap, pan rim, and parchment paper. To slice cake, dip the blade of a large knife in hot water and wipe it dry between each slice. Serve immediately.
