- 1 teaspoon of salt

- 2 large eggs

- 1 ½ cups of vegetable oil

- 1 cup of buttermilk

- ½ cup of unsalted butter, softened

- 4 cups of powdered sugar

- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Now, let's get started with the preparation:

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt.

3. In a separate large bowl, beat the eggs, vegetable oil, buttermilk, red food coloring, vanilla extract, and vinegar until well combined.

4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just blended.

Be careful not to overmix.

5. Divide the batter equally between the two cake pans and smooth the tops with a spatula.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.

7. Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

8. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the Cream Cheese Frosting. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until fluffy and well combined.

9. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well between each addition.

10. Stir in the vanilla extract and continue beating until the frosting is smooth and creamy.

11. Once the cakes are completely cooled, spread a thick layer of Cream Cheese Frosting onto one cake layer. Place the second cake layer on top and frost the top and sides with the remaining frosting.

12. Decorate the cake as desired and enjoy!
