Free cupcakes at Cinnabon on tax day April 15th

We've covered the new Cinnabon cupcakes quite a bit here; if you haven't tried them yet, next Thursday, April 15th, you can do so for free!

From the press release:

We all know how stressful Tax Day is, so Cinnabon is once again showing Guests that Tax Day Bites! On Thursday, April 15th from 6 pm to 8 pm at participating U.S. mall-based bakeries, Cinnabon is giving away free bite-sized portions of its new, delicious cupcakes.*

"At Cinnabon, we believe that
Life Needs Frosting," said Gary Bales, Cinnabon president. "Everyone deserves to splurge every once in awhile, so we'd love to be the frosting on our Guests' day -- particularly on days as painful as Tax Day. We're also excited about featuring something new to enjoy -- Cinnabon cupcakes."

Bite-sized Cinnabon cupcake flavors available for taking a bite out of Tax Day include:

* Cinnacake Classic: A tribute to Cinnabon's world-famous Classic Roll -- moist, vanilla cake infused with Cinnabon's Makara Cinnamon, topped with our signature cream cheese frosting and Makara Cinnamon

* Chocolate Passion: Moist, decadent chocolate cake topped with rich, chocolate buttercream frosting

* Vanilla Bliss: Moist, divinely vanilla cake topped with luscious, vanilla buttercream frosting

* 24-Carrot Cake: Moist, perfectly-spiced carrot cake with a hint of pineapple and coconut, topped with Cinnabon's signature cream cheese frosting and orange sugar sprinkles
