Do you believe in Magic?

Yes, I believe in Magic!
I was once pulled from the audience to be the object of a magic trick. They were still learning. They put a large metal cylinder open on both ends on my head and said they were going to bake a cake.
They poured in water, flour, cracked an egg, and threw in a lit match. I felt the heat, but not the other items. When they took off the cylinder, there was an orange on top of my head (and a little egg).
I kept the orange as asked. Later during another trick they asked me to throw it back. They peeled the top and pulled a rolled up playing card with a corner missing out from the center of the orange.
It matched the corner piece of the current trick, even though that card had been chosen by the volunteer, ripped up into several pieces, and the volunteer chose which one piece to keep... HOW?!?!?
I don’t want to know!
P.S. Here is one of the best.
