        we ordered 2 vegan cakes -- one chocolate, the other carrot or something -- from whole foods for sis's law school grad'n party this wknd -- they went over like the proverbial lead balloon...fortunately we had lots of other yummy stuff for everyone...

                I second this. I actually prefer it to their regular chocolate cake and I'm not remotely vegan.

                  their flourless chocolate cake is good too...albeit, definitely not vegan, but good if you need a fix and can't eat gluten!

                    I fully agree with these sentiments about Urth's vegan chocolate cake. I used to live within walking distance to Urth (the one on Melrose), and would occasionally treat myself to one of their "mini" vegan chocolate cakes. Delicious.

                  This weekend I was at a party for my friends 2 year old daughter who is lactose intolerant. She got a vegan chocolate cake at Ledas. If she hadn't told me it was vegan I would have never known. Good luck with your search!

                    i had one from follow your heart today but it wasn't so great. had an amazing one in san luis obispo at the natural cafe but i don't think it is a normal menu item. and it's a little far from los angeles...

                      There is a Natural Vafe in Wesltake Village. One in Moorpark, too, i think.
