Some years ago, a friend gave my mother a recipe for red velvet cake and the frosting was delicious! The ingredients were:
I cannot remember if there were any other ingredients, but this is what I remember. Part of the recipe puts the sugar and milk in saucepan and heat until hot, not boiling stirring until sugar is desolved. The amounts of the ingredients, and the rest of the recipe I don't remember....but the frosting comes out like whipped cream. Any help would be appreciated.
Below I included three links to some recipes on this site that have frostings similar to what you are describing, without cream cheese. None cook the sugar, however.
I also found a recipe for Seven-Minute Frosting that I read about on another site as being used for frosting red velvet cake. Maybe this is closer to what you remember - the sugar is cooked in this recipe. Here is the link to the post on the Taste of Home site with the recipe:

The recipe that I remember did NOT have flour in it. Think all ingredients listed are what is in this recipe. Don't remember the amounts. The liquid was heated until hot, not boiling and the sugar stirred in until dissolved. This was allowed to cool before adding to the butter/vanilla mixture. Then whipped until it turned into a whipped cream consistency. It made enough to completely frost two layers of the cake, or one 11 x 13 pan.
