You don't need to be Harry Potter, the 'magic' is actually science, like all cooking. BUT, when a bowl of curdled-looking 'GAK' transforms itself into a feather-light sponge floating on a tangy hot lemon-curd sauce, you'd be forgiven for serving it up with a swirl of your star-studded cape! This can be served cold... If you can wait that long.
