Last year a vegan cupcake shop opened up next to the barber I go to. They had decorated their front window long before opening and announced that not only would they be totally vegan but that they would cater to gluten free customers as well. I have had cupcakes from Pink Frosting (534 Bloomfield Avenue, Verona, NJ 07044) a number of times since then and have been quite pleased (even though it has taken me way too long to finally review them).

from Pink Frosting Bakery in Verona, NJ
Over the past year, I've noticed that both the number of daily gluten free offerings and the variety of flavors has increased quite a bit. Their frosting is surprisingly light and airy / fluffy. Truth be told, I'm not really sure how to describe it other than to say it is the best dairy free frosting I've had.
The entire shop is vegan and although they charge slightly more for vegan/gluten free cupcakes it is still a reasonable price compared to other gf bakeries.
