Chocolate Fudge Cake

Perfect!!!! in taste...the best Chocolate Fudge Cake I ever made!!..soft, moist and spongy...betul tak bedek jugak!!..hehe...almost like the bought in chocolatey taste..this was  Iqram's birthday cake...
My concept for this cake was 'lego block'...since Iqram like lego, I tried making this giant replica of it..hehehe.. ..dont really resembles, but almost if only I can get the small moulds in straight cut instead of curved sides...

Should have thought of it more details, when I poured the ganache on to the small moulds as the sides was quite difficult to smoothen it....Mr Hubby's comments was I  should have used any vibrant colour, either yellow, orange  or blue to give the much effect rather then 'brown' or chocolate!!..(cannot really see)..

Agreed with him but, I told him that if were to use colours for the cream, the kids wouldnt like them, as they only EAT chocolate coloured cakes!!!..
