Follow these directions:

Quick Red Velvet Cake

1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup oil
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
2 tablespoons cocoa
5 eggs
2 ounces red food coloring, see note

Combine cake mix with oil, buttermilk, cocoa, eggs and food coloring and mix well (we beat for 2 minutes). Bake according to package directions. Frost cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.
