Mrs. Wilkes is in her nineties now and four generations of Wilkeses help her keep the restaurant's tables laden with platters of her fried chicken, ribs, biscuits and her Red Velvet Cake. Here's the recipe:
Combine the cream cheese and butter, melt over very low heat.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
If frosting becomes too thick, add a little milk.
Frost the cake layers.
