Prepare two cakes in bundt pans, cool completely
Color most of the frosting a deep orange, reserving about 1/2 cup, which should be colored black (you may also use dark chocolate fudge frosting)
Place one bundt cake upside down (rounded side on the bottom) on cake plate; frost top only. Place second bundt cake flat-side down on top of first cake. Frost entire cake with orange frosting, making up and down motions with spatula to simulate pumpkin.
