Red velvet cake isn’t a sponge, would you consider a chiffon?  They are springy, moist and not overly sweet.  There are great recipes for orange, lemon or chocolate chiffon in The Cake Bible or in Rose’s Heavenly Cakes.

you can also try other flavours as well by changing the orange juice in the orange chiffon recipe to something else smile
the green tea one turned out great but the mango one i made still needs a bit of work. Mango flavour isn’t strong like Orange…but any strong fruit flavour can be substituted quite nicely for the orange

Typically Sponge Cake is not moist since it has no oil… you can add butter though,  BUT you can add simple syrup to it..  I use Torani Italian syrups with different flavors.  That way you don;t have to make it..

Red Velvet is not Red velvet if it is not red..  You can add Beets (juice ) to make it red instead of food coloring..
