The magician starts his act by taking a bite out of an apple. He then delivers some patter, and shows what apparently is the bite he had taken. After some more patter, he shows that what was thought to have been the bite that he was showing was really just a sticker with a picture of a bite, which he proceeded to peel off, leaving an apparently pristine apple.
He walks across the stage and places this apple on a pedestal on a table. He then proceeds to do a few more tricks in his act. Finally he walks over to that apple, showing that the bite has reappeared. He takes the apple off its pedestal and hands it to someone to evaluate that it is indeed a real bite taken out of the apple.
How was it done?
The magician takes a bite from an apple that has a sticker showing a bite on the other side. He places the bitten side in his palm, and does the business with the sticker.
He then places the apple on the pedestal with the bitten side facing away from the audience. When he turns the apple around at the end of the act, the bite will 'reappear.'
