Typical of the fancy cakes found in the elegant pastry shops of Milan and other northern Italian cities, the torta bignè is not particularly difficult to prepare. To make the process easier, bake the pan di spagna and the bignè the day before. Refrigerate them, tightly covered. Reheat and cool the bignè before assembling the cake.
