Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with liners and coat with nonstick spray.

For the cupcakes, sift together flour, sugar, black cocoa, unsweetened cocoa, baking powder, and salt.

Whisk together egg, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla in a measuring cup with a pour spout; whisk into flour mixture.

Combine hot water and baking soda, stirring to dissolve; whisk into batter until combined. Divide batter among cupcake liners.

Bake cupcakes until a toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean, 2025 minutes. Cool cupcakes in pan 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.

For the filling, beat powdered sugar, shortening, milk, vanilla, and salt until smooth; transfer to a piping bag fitted with a round piping tip.

Pipe filling into cupcakes, by inserting the tip into cake tops and applying gentle pressure, until cupcakes just feel full (but not too full or cupcakes might crack).

For the frosting, process coarsely chopped Oreos in a food processor until fine. Add butter, powdered sugar, milk, and salt; process until smooth.

Pipe or spread frosting on filled cupcakes; top with a halved Oreo.
