Cinna-bon-cup-cake. Cinnaboncake? Cinnacup?
Fact: I've never had anything from Cinnabon before. Nope, not even at an airport. I do enjoy cinnamon buns, especially the Pillsbury kind you can make at home, because you can save a little of the frosting in the frosting tub and use that for your own dipping once everyone else takes their piece..oh...just me? Since I love trying out new things, and my friend T was in town visiting, we thought it would be fun to try out the new cupcake when we passed by it at the mall. They have 4 flavors, but we knew it was going to be the Cinnacake Classic- c'mon, you gotta try the namesake out, right?
First off, I was impressed at their packaging- they have cupcake holder sleeves (the ones that look like a monkey's face, haha) that they just place into their regular Cinnabon container, to keep the cupcake in place while in transit. Also, saves them from having to buy new/extra packaging just for their cupcakes. Nice work! Ok I gotta say- if you love cinnamon bun frosting... you will LOVE this cupcake. As you can see it is piled high with the thick rich frosting that was similar/identical to the kind you spread on the regular cinnamon buns. The cake itself was a little dry and crumbled really easily. Safe to say I liked it mainly for the yummy frosting. Overall though, not bad for not being a cupcake company! But you really gotta like that frosting to eat this, it's about 2/3 of the whole cupcake, haha!
