I'm not sure, but I don't think so, my idea is it's supposed to look like an actual Cinnabon, not resemble it, I guess there really aren't that many uses for an ammonite shell.

One use is to leave it on your mantle, then meet a drunk guy in a bar who really likes ammonites, invite him to your home, then tell him he can keep it, and watch him drag it home while avoiding the bobbies.

Alternatively, you can use it like this...

Bah! The copper look utterly baffled. He exchanged a look of 'Oh a nutter' with his colleague and drove on. My luck.
