Ingredients:  
2 packages active dry yeast
2-1/2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon sugar
1 package (2-layer size) white cake mix
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg
1/3 cup cooking oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup sugar
4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:
For Dough: In a large mixing bowl, stir yeast into 1/2 cup of the warm water; add 1 teaspoon sugar. Let stand for about 5 minutes, or until foamy. Stir the cake mix, 1 cup of the flour, the egg, cooking oil, salt and the remaining water into yeast mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed for 3 minutes, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the remaining flour to form a moderately soft dough (dough will be sticky). Cover and let rise in refrigerator 2 to 24 hours, or until doubled in size. Lightly grease two 13x9x2-inch baking pans. Set aside. Stir dough. Divide in half. Turn 1 portion of dough out onto well-floured surface. Turn to coat lightly with flour. Roll the dough into a 12x8-inch rectangle. Brush with half of the melted butter.

For filling: In a small bowl, combine the 2/3 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Sprinkle half of the sugar mixture over dough. Roll up into a spiral, starting from one of the long sides. Pinch edge to seal. Repeat with the remaining dough, remaining butter and remaining sugar mixture. Cut each roll of the dough crosswise into 12 pieces. Arrange 12 pieces, cut sides down, in each of the prepared pans. Cover loosely; let the dough rise in a warm place until nearly doubled in size (about 1 hour). Uncover pans. Place a baking sheet under each of the pans. Bake in a 350 oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly brown and rolls sound hollow when lightly tapped. Transfer to serving plates. Drizzle powered sugar icing over warm rolls.
