Preheat the oven to 350°F. For the cupcakes, whisk together oil, almondmilk, yogurt, sugar and egg replacer mixture in a large bowl. In a separate large bowl, mix together rice flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Add flour mixture to milk mixture and stir to combine. Spoon batter into 16 paper-lined standard muffin tins, filling each about two-thirds full. Bake until cooked through and light golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack and set aside to let cool completely.

For the frosting, put margarine, sugar, almondmilk and vanilla in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until well combined and fluffy, about 1 minute. Spread frosting on cupcakes, sprinkle cinnamon over the top and serve.
