For my favorite red velvet cake I use very easy recipe. 

1 c buttermilk 
1 tbsp vinegar  
1 stick butter 
1 nuts optional
1 box powdered sugar 
1 box butter cake mix

8 oz cream cheese
3 eggs 
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp soda 
1 tsp cocoa 

Cream Cheese Icing: cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar.  Mix cocoa with cake mix.  

Stir in buttermilk, vanilla, butter and eggs. Add coloring. Blend. Add soda and vinegar and mix again well. Beat 4 minutes. Bake at 375° for about 30 minutes. 

As for Lemon Cake, I like this recipe http://cookiteasy.net/recipe/lemon-cake-32886.html I use it twice, so I can vouch that the cake will turn out delicious. Just look at the pictures, they look so appetizing!
