Boil water in a saucepan for a steam bath and place the bowl with juice, sugar and butter above it, so it doesn’t touch the surface of the water. Stir the mixture with a whisk on a steam bath until the sugar dissolves. Add 1 egg and 1 yolk. Don’t throw away the egg whites, we still need it to make a sponge cake.

Next, place a ball of lemon curd from the freezer in each mold and press lightly so that the ball falls into the dough. But do not press too hard, the ball should remain approximately inside the fondant, not near the top or bottom. Bake lemon fondant in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow the finished fondant to cool slightly. If the fondant does not fall out of the mold, lightly tap the bottom of the molds. Add some sugar powder on the top of the lemon curd.
