Aldol condensation between cyclohexanone and cinnamaldehyde

Yahoo!Answers in chemistry wrote:

What is the product of cyclohexanone and cinnamaldehyde?
I did an aldol condensation in organic chemistry lab between an unknown aldehyde and an unknown ketone. Based on NMR, IR, and melting point analysis, I believe the ketone is cyclohexanone and the aldehyde is cinnamaldehyde. Does anyone know the product of this reaction? Mechanism and structure would be helpful!

The product would be as shown. The mechanisms would be analogous to http://orgo.curvedarrow.com/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=125
