       1    Pane di Spagne
            - baked and cooled
 MMMMM-----------------------PASTRY CREAMS----------------------------
       1 qt Milk
   1 1/2 c  Sugar
      12    Egg yolks
     2/3 c  Unbleached all-purpose flour
       1 tb Grated orange zest
       2 ts Vanilla extract
       4 oz Bittersweet chocolate
     1/2 ts Cinnamon
     2/3 c  Water
     2/3 c  Sugar
     1/2 c  Dark rum
     3/4 c  Heavy cream
            Chocolate shavings
            Candied fruit
   BRING THE MILK and half the sugar to a boil in a large saucepan.
   Whisk the egg yolks in mixing bowl and beat in the remaining sugar.
   Sift in the flour and beat it in. Beat 1/3 of the boiling milk into
   the egg mixture. Return the remaining milk to a boil and beat in the
   egg mixture, continuing to beat until the pastry cream thickens and
   comes to a boil. Cook, beating about 1 minute. Remove the cream from
   the heat and pour half into each of 2 bowls. Stir the orange zest and
   vanilla extract into one and the chocolate and cinnamon into the
   other. Press plastic wrap against the surface of each and refrigerate
   until cold.
   FOR THE SYRUP: Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a small pan.
   Cool and add the rum. Cut the Pane di Spagna into thin vertical
   slices. Place a layer of the slices in the bottom of a glass bowl and
   moisten with the syrup. Spread with half the orange cream. Cover with
   another layer of the Pane di Spagna and moisten with the syrup and
   cover with a layer of the chocolate cream. Repeat with the remaining
   ingredients, ending with a layer of the cake slices and moistening
   with the remaining syrup. Whip the cream and spread on the top.
   Decorate with some chocolate shavings and the candied fruit.
