Add the almonds and mix well.

In another bowl, whisk together the oil, Sweet Freedom and eggs.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir together until completely combined.

Spoon the mixture into the paper cases, about halfway up each one.

Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack and leave to cool.

In a small bowl, beat together the icing ingredients then spoon a little onto each cake.

Decorate with fresh fruit and serve. If any cupcakes left over store in the fridge due to cream cheese topping.
