1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together pastry flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together water, lemon juice, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir well to combine.

2. Line two 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners. Carefully fill each liner nearly full, leaving just a little rim of paper showing. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove cupcakes from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes in the tins before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

3. To prepare the frosting, in a large bowl, beat margarine for 1 minute using a mixer. Add powdered sugar, non-dairy milk, and vanilla, and beat 3 to 5 minutes or until very light and fluffy. Use a small spatula or knife to spread the frosting over the tops of the cupcakes.
