Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond milk and apple cider vinegar and set aside for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Add the melted butter and sugars to the milk mixture and stir to combine.

Step 4

Sift in the flours and cinnamon, and add the salt and vanilla. Whisk until the mixture is smooth

Step 5

Divide the mixture between 8 holes of the muffin tray and bake for 25 minutes or until cupcakes have shrunk in slightly from the edges of the tray and an inserted skewer comes out clean.

Step 6

Turn the cupcakes out onto a wire rack to cool.

Step 7

To prepare the icing, set up a double boiler over a stove and once boiling, reduce to a simmer.

Step 8

Add the egg whites and sugar to the bowl over the double boiler and whisk continuously until the sugar has dissolved.

Step 9

Remove the bowl from the double boiler and add the cornflour. Beat the mixture until it is thick and glossy and stick peaks have formed.
