6. Remove from oven and the water bath. Place on a cooling rack and let the torte come to room temperature. When room temperature, place in the refrigerator overnight.

7. Remove the torte from the pan, and remove the parchment from the bottom. Cover with glacage and decorate the edges with crushed candied pecans, garnish with candied burnt oranges.
