Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls with cake mix
Contributed by Diane S.

These are the best cinnamon rolls I have ever made.  I made this full batch
for my husband and his co-workers - but usually make a half batch which
makes a small cookie sheet full.  I then frost with a cream cheese
frosting.  They are really great.  (I made the full batch with my Kitchen
Aid mixer and the half-batch in my bread machine dough cycle - they both
turn out great)
