No I've never heard of doing that. If you want a really good Red Velvet Cake try Cakeman Raven's recipe or Paula Deens....very easy to follow recipes even if you're not use to baking from scratch.

If you go to http://sugarteachers.blogspot.com/2010/07/creating-scrolls-on-your-cake-by-denise.html
Tonedna has a recipe for A pistachio cake that she adds cream cheese to . It sounds really delicious and I don't see why you couldnt use it in red velvet . HTH

it would definitely make it more of a dense, pound-cake like texture I would think

Yes, this is very common to do this just as you might use sour cream, even mayo(yes, mayo!!!).
I have never tried it personally...but it is common, and I have heard that it is very good. I use sour cream in all of my cakes.

Mayo is awesome in cakes--It's just eggs and oil basically anyway. I haven't used that in a longgggg time but I know it works!
