Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. Crumble cake into large bowl. Add frosting; mix well. Roll into 1-inch balls; shape each ball into triangle, pressing sides flat to look like candy corn. Place on cookie sheet. Freeze until firm; keep refrigerated.
In microwavable bowl, microwave yellow candy melts and 2 tablespoons of the shortening uncovered on Medium (50%) 1 minute, then in 15-second intervals, until melted; stir until smooth. Repeat with orange candy melts and white candy melts, using 1 tablespoon shortening for each.
