Gluten Free Cake or Cupcakes?

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!

    1. 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.
