    4 GF options white cake with white frosting, white cake with chocolate frosting, chocolate cake with white frosting or chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. The white cake and frosting was great! The chocolate cake was not good. Gooey. Wrong texture. Not awful. Just not good. Cupcakes were a little small.

    The gf cupcake was dry and tasted horrible. The gluten free cupcake at Baked and Wired in Georgetown is fresh and not stored in a refrigerated case.

    We loved this place! Gluten free and vegan! Amazing, we had the chocolate and vanilla. The chocolate was our favorite. We will go back.... soon!

    Delicious! I had the white (vanilla) velvet gluten free cupcake with buttercream frosting. Creamy frosting atop a moist cupcake. It hit the sweet spot without being too much. Their cupcakes are in the same case as non-gluten free. Associate initiated changing gloves prior to getting my cupcake.

    I've had better...black velvet didn't have a strong enough chocolate flavor for me to really enjoy.

    As a person who has to stay away from gluten and dairy it's pretty rare I get anything to satisfy a sweet tooth so it's really great to be able to have enjoy some cake! I am not a fan of their vanilla cake but their black velvet is great! I'm always shocked at how much I love the vegan frosting which is surprisingly light and creamy! I always make it a point to come here when I'm in town.

    Delicious GF cupcake. I was a little nervous that they were kept in the same display case as the regular cupcakes. I had one anyway due to the reviews on this site. I didn't get sick!! And I got to enjoy a delicious cupcake too!

    They had 2 kinds of GF cupcakes today. White red velvet and chocolate red velvet and both had your choice of vanilla or chocolate frosting. The frosting was yummy sweet and the cake was pretty good, not dry but not bursting with flavor. I was happy to get my sweet fix with my family in DC!

    GF cupcakes are super moist and I could probably eat an entire bucket of the icing by itself. Delicious! :D

    Had the chocolate and vanilla versions of the Gluten Free and no issues. I'm very sensitive and was excited at a great cupcake. Tender, fluffy, not a puck of dense bread. Love it, and will return.

    The vanilla gluten-free cupcake with vanilla icing is my favorite DC cupcake by far. So flavorful and sweet. Perfect size and texture.

    One night they had run out of gluten free cupcakes, so I asked if anything else there was gluten free, and the clerk told me they had cookies that were. I bought one and then got very sick that night and the next day. It turns out they don't sell gluten free cookies at all. The clerk had confused "gluten free" with "vegan"!

    The staff was knowledgeable, they offered a few vegan, gluten free cupcakes and they're open until 11pm! I loved the frosting but not so much the texture or taste of the cupcake. I appreciate the effort and its great when you're craving something sweet on the go.

    Only 4 offerings (choc/choc, chock/van, van/van, van choc) but they are moist, rich and delicious buttery frosting. They put my GF cupcake in a separate bag from my husband's regular one without my asking. Near Metro Center station.
