AYes, I just made one two days ago for my sis b-day! I got the recipe from Gretchen Price of Woodland Bakery.

AIf you are looking for a butter, instead of oil based one, I like America's Test Kitchen one with modifications. I use 11.4 oz white lilly ap, 1/4 t salt, full fat buttermilk, apple cider vinegar, 2t red velvet emulsion, 1/2 t vanilla, 2T hot coffee, 1T oil. I use standard creaming method, not the muffin type mixing they have instructed. I bloom the natural cocoa in the coffee and then add the flavorings/oil to that and then all into the buttermilk. I get better color distribution this way, rather then adding the cocoa/coloring at the end to prevent over mixing. I do not use touch test, I use moist crumbs on skewer. Cake should not pull from pan side (slightly) until it is out of oven. I just made this recipe and alternated layers with ice water white cake for a great red velvet strawberry shortcake yesterday. Chocolate taste was minimal, red was enough to be evident but not enough to be garish in my opinion.
