Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9"-x-13" baking dish with cooking spray. In a large bowl using a hand mixer (or in the bowl of a stand mixer), beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

In another large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Add half the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, beating until just combined. Add buttermilk, vinegar, and red food coloring, beating to combine. Add remaining dry ingredients. Pour batter into prepared dish and bake until set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool completely then poke big holes across the entire surface of the cake using the rounded end of the wooden spoon. 

Meanwhile, make the filling: In a medium bowl, whisk together condensed milk and cream cheese. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the cake.

Make the frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer (or in the bowl of a stand mixer), beat butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and salt and mix until combined. Top cake with a thick layer of frosting.
