3. In a medium heatproof bowl, combine rind, lemon juice, sugar, eggs and butter. Place over medium saucepan of simmering water. Cook, stirring, for 15 minutes, or until curd coats the back of a spoon.

4. In small heatproof jug, sprinkle gelatine over the water. Stand jug in small saucepan of simmering water and stir until gelatine dissolves. Stir gelatine mixture into warm lemon curd. Cool to room temperature.

5. Pour jelly over sponge cake and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Top with lemon curd. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours, or overnight.
