confused I'd start again. Unless you really like cinnamon. Or perhaps increase the quantities of everything else if you have enough.

It's a bit late now, but I'd advise to be very careful when substituting a whole spice for a ground one...ground has a far larger surface area and can't be removed.

Taste it! However I am inclined to think that the cinnamon will be overpowering in a ground form.
