Gluten free cupcakes at bakery in Reston Town Center,

There are typically at least two gluten free cupcake varieties available here: Black Velvet (chocolate with chocolate frosting) and White Velvet (vanilla bean with vanilla frosting). Sometimes they mix them, like putting the chocolate frosting on the vanilla cake, or vice versa. Both varieties are very good. These cupcakes are also vegan, which is surprising, because the icing tastes like a true buttercream, even though it doesn't contain dairy. There are two other Red Velvet locations: one in Penn Quarter in DC and one in the Clarendon area of Arlington. Definitely worth a visit. It would be great if they'd add a few more flavors.

Gluten free cupcakes at bakery in Reston, Virginia,

Red Velvet Cupcakery in Reston offers two gluten free varieties (which also happen to be vegan): White Velvet and Black Velvet. They are displayed in a separate area, away from the other cupcakes. Both varieties were good, the vanilla in particular -- very tasty, moist cake. It looks more like a spice cake (darker than most vanilla cupcakes), but the flavor is a very good, subtle vanilla. On this particular visit, the chocolate icing on the Black Velvet tasted a bit smoky, but that hasn't been the case when I've had their cupcakes in the past. Because they are vegan, they don't use a dairy buttercream (which would be my preference, b/c I'm not vegan), but the icing is still very good. All in all, worth a visit if you're nearby and craving a cupcake that's GF! They have two other locations -- one in DC and one in Clarendon. Maybe they'll add other gluten free varieties in the future -- if demand warrants!
