Review: Cinnabon - Cupcakes

Cinnabon Cupcakes
As you may know, Cinnabon added cupcakes to their ovens not too long ago. I was able to try the 24-Carrot Cake and Chocolate Passion cupcakes courtesy of the Sister-in-law, who found out you can buy them at the end of the day for only $1 each. They are normally $2.50 each.

My first impression of the cupcakes were that they were butt ugly. Seriously, a five-year old could decorate better than this. The Chocolate Passion was decorated with pink buttercream frosting with what I'm guessing is supposed to be a flower?

And, the 24-Carrot Cake was decorated with what appear to be little cream cheese spikes and crystallized orange sprinkles.

Both frostings were on the too sweet side for me, but I find that to be so with most cupcakes.
Cinnabon Chocolate Cupcake
They tasted pretty good though. A bit like Betty Crocker cupcakes that you bake at home. The cupcakes kept their moisture well, but the texture was a bit different, with bigger air bubbles..

Of the two cupcakes, I liked the Chocolate better; it had a rich chocolate flavor to it.
