  1. Place the sugar in the TM bowl. Mix 10 seconds/speed 9 to make powdered icing sugar. Tip out and set aside - this is for the frosting.
  2. Pour the water in the TM bowl. Place the beets in the steamer basket in the TM bowl. Steam 45 minutes/Viloma temperature/speed 1 - or until fork tender.
  3. While the beets are cooking, preheat the oven to 180°C, or 350°F Prepare a cupcake pan by greasing or lining with cups.
  4. When the beets are done, place them (still hot) in the TM bowl. Add the vegan butter, the syrup and the extracts. Mix 15 seconds/speed 6.
  5. Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and egg replacer. Mix 20 seconds/speed 4 scraping down as necessary.
  6. Add the soy milk. Mix 10 seconds/speed 4.
  7. Fill the prepared cups with the batter. Bake at 180°C or 350°F for 16-18 minutes.
  8. After the cupcakes have cooled completely, combine the reserved icing sugar with the almond extract the 2-5 teaspoons of water, and the cocoa powder - just until it has a spreadable consistency. Basically the frosting is the glue to stick the sprinkles to the cupcakes.
