  4. Add the wet mix to the dry and stir until combined into a cake batter.
  5. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full using a tablespoon or ice cream scoop.
  6. For full-sized cupcakes: Bake for 11 minutes until golden.

FROSTING

  2. Add all ingredients to a Vitamix or high-speed blender and blend until well combined, adding more liquid (water/milk) if required to assist in smooth blending.
  3. Taste the frosting as you go and add more sweetener, lemon or vanilla etc. to your liking. 
  4. Using a spatula or cake knife, ice the cooled cupcakes and serve!
