Ingredients

* 2 cups sugar
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 cup cocoa
* 1 cup vegetable oil
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 2 large eggs
* 1 cup buttermilk
* 1 cup hot water
* 2 teaspoons baking soda
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

* Buttercream Frosting


Beat first 6 ingredients in a large bowl at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Stir in buttermilk.



Stir together 1 cup hot water and baking soda; stir into batter. Stir in vanilla. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9-inch round cakepans.



Bake at 350° for 30 to 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes; remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.



Freeze layers 30 minutes. Cut each layer into 8 wedges.



Pipe frosting on top and sides of cake wedges to resemble candy corn. Using a medium star tip, pipe white frosting on the small end of each cake, yellow frosting on center, and orange on wide end.
