thanks for the photo bro!
Later that day, my brother emailed a review of the cupcakes:
"We were especially impressed with the icings. The strawberry tasted like fresh strawberries, but I don't know what it was (their infused buttercream?). The cream cheese on the red velvet cakes had a definite sour flavor like cream cheese (maybe there was some sour cream in there) but it was really light and fluffy, so they must have whipped it up with something else. Very effective IMHO. "
