Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with parchment paper.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until almost cooked through and firm to the bite, about 7 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Sprinkle ½ tsp salt over macaroni, and stir in ½ cup butter.
Combine ¼ cup butter, sour cream, cream cheese, sharp cheddar cheese and egg yolk together in a bowl; mix together. Stir in flour, ½ tsp salt, cayenne pepper and milk.
Spread ¼ cup sour cream sauce over bottom of prepared baking dish. Stir remaining sour cream sauce into the macaroni. Pour macaroni into baking dish atop sauce layer; sprinkle mild cheddar cheese over the casserole.
Bake until heated through and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.
