The cinnamon gene is a recessive gene.  Being recessive means that a hamster needs two of these genes (one from each parent) to have the cinnamon coloration.  The cinnamon gene can be carried recessively and not show up in the coat at all.  Breeding to an cinnamon or to another hamster carrying the cinnamon gene, though, will produce some cinnamon babies.
