Sorry..I don't know about the pudding/caramel topping, but I love this recipe for cinnamon rolls.

Cake Mix Cinnamon Rolls

In a small bowl dissolve 3 packages yeast in 2 1/2 cups of warm water. Let stand until foamy.
In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture with an 18.25 ounce white cake mix and 3 cups of flour; stir to combine. Add the 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.

Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.

Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough into a 10 x 16 inch rectangle, spread with 1/2 cup of softened butter. Sprinkle with 1 cup brown sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Starting from one of the long sides, roll up the rectangle and cut into 1 inch slices.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan. Pour 1/2 cup melted butter into a small bowl. Mix 1/2 cups sugar and 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (if desired). Dip the top of each roll in the melted butter, then in the sugar/pecan mixture, then place topped rolls snugly into the prepared pan. Cover the rolls with a damp towel and let rise until doubled in volume (or place in refrigerator overnight for baking the next morning: take out to rise for at least an hour before baking if using overnight method).

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the rolls are golden. Ice if desired.
