Chocolate birthday cake for kids

In the eyes of adults, this cake is totally unacceptable.

But I am talking kids here... I pamper this three cheeky little fellows the most. And it was the middle sister's birthday yesterday (and so was my best buddy! Happy birthday woman!) so I decided to bake her a cake since she is staying at my home for the weekends.

I took them for Mr.Bean later at noon. I honestly didn't know the movie was such a sell. The movie is out for 2 weeks already in Malaysia (right?) but the only slot available was for a midnight movie! Yikes! I had to head for another cinema just to find myself buying tickets that was 4 rows away from the screen for a evening movie.
Back on track;

Anyway, I still have 2 slices of cake left... I wonder if Mr.Bean would some for a piece of chocolate cake with double layer coating and Smarties on top. I bet he will absolutely love it comparing to that live oyster!

I actually screwed up a little while baking this cake. My cake would not separate from the pan initially. Thought I oiled the pan properly and separated the sides from the pan, it still wouldn't leave the pan when I over turned it like a million times. In the end, the cake dropped in 3 big clumps with majority still stuck to the pan. I had to scrape the cake off and assemble to make it look like a round cake.

I have two layers of coating because the cake was so scattered that I could not cut it in to horizontally half. I used the filling for the first layer, and melted more chocolate on top. I broke chocolate finger biscuits in to half to build the fence and dropped Smarties on the top before the chocolate cooled. Sprinkled lot of millions color on the middle and slowly less and less on the outer side of the cake to make it look like a hill full of colors.

Dear Teckiee,
You gave me an idea for my next kid's birthday cake. I can use M&Ms to put at the top of the cake and chocolate fingers on the side. I use the rubbery kind of pan and I don't oil my pan. I don't oil because 1)more healthy 2)chiffon cake rises better without the extra oil. To remove the cake from the pan, since it is rubbery in nature, I simply lossen the sides with a spatula and use my hand to turn the rubber mold inside out. Without a photo, it is hard to understand, isn't it? If you are interested in this rubbery cake pan that I am talking about, let me know. I will post a photo of it on my blog. I will post it under "Pandan Chiffon Cake".
