I have been put in charge of getting a birthday cake or cupcakes for a friend's birthday party. He is Gluten intolerant. Any suggestions on where I can get yummy gluten free ake or cupcakes? I am in West Hollywood, but willing to travel if it's worth it. Thanks in advance!

      Second The Sensitive Baker

      There's also Sweet Debbie's Organic

    2. Whole Foods has fantastic ones someone in my office brings in (I think you may find them in the refrigerated or frozen section but they are fantastic)

      1. A bit further is Flore.

        1. Thank you so much for all the suggestions! I will check them out.

          1. Urth on Melrose has individual flourless chocolate cakes that are to die for. Last weekend they were 50% off at $3.25 each. Although they are individual, they are really rich--and are easily 2 portions each. My husband, who is gluten intolerant--and very sensitive to even the tiniest spec of gluten--loves these, and we do too. So many gluten-free baked goods with replacement flours taste odd to everyone except the gluten intolerant.

                I know this is sort of off topic.

                I noticed that they sell gluten free cake mix at my local Albertsons. It's made by either Betty Crocken or Duncan Heinz.

                  Last time I checked they didn't ahve gluten-free--are you sure that they do now?

                    I saw it last week at the Simi Valley store at about 5000 LA Ave. at Stearns. Now that I think of it, maybe they stocked it because of a weekly ad special on the regular cake mix. I dont get there a lot because I shop elsewhere mostly.

                2. This won't help you right now, but Babycakes Bakery of NYC is opening a shop downtown in November. Their cookies, cupcakes, and brownies are amazing, and they carry both gluten-free and vegan varieties. I can't wait until they're open!

                    FYI-again pardon this being off topic but many are interested in gluten free products.
                    For anyone interested in a gluten free store. I posted this a while back,
