Red Velvet Cake Layers:
• Preheat oven to 350 degrees F / 175 degrees C. Grease three 6-inch cake pans with homemade cake release or non-stick baking spray and parchment paper. Set aside.
• In a medium bowl, sift together the cake flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
• In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, use either a hand mixer or a stand mixer to cream together the butter and granulated sugar. Mix on a medium high speed for 1-2 minutes, until the mixture becomes lighter in color. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed with a rubber spatula.
• Mix in the eggs on a medium speed until fully incorporated.
• Add in the buttermilk, oil, red gel food coloring, vanilla extract, and white vinegar. Mix on a low speed until combined. The mixture might look broken at this stage but I promise it will come together once we add in the dry ingredients.
• Slowly mix in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients a low speed in two installments. Mix until just combined and you can no longer see any visible streaks of cake flour.
• Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans and bang the pans on your counter a few times to release any air bubbles that might be trapped in the batter. Bake for 30-33 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out with a few moist crumbs.
• Remove the pans from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes, then run a small offset spatula around the perimeter. Carefully flip the layers out of their pans and place on a wire rack to finish cooling.
• Level two of the cake layers with a serrated knife once they’re fully cooled. Trim the bottom cake layer to give the cake a somewhat rounded shape (see pictures above).
• If you’re making these cake layers in advance, wrap and freeze them at this point.
Vanilla Buttercream Frosting:
• Beat the butter on a medium speed for 30 seconds with a paddle attachment until smooth. If you don’t like cream cheese frosting use additional butter in place of the cream cheese in this frosting recipe.
• Add in the vanilla and salt, and beat on low until the ingredients are fully incorporated.
• Slowly mix in the powdered sugar and heavy cream on a low speed. Place a kitchen towel over your mixer to prevent powdered sugar clouds from coating your kitchen.
Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed with a rubber spatula.
