  2. In a large bowl, mix together cake mix and cinnamon, then stir in vegetable oil, eggs, water and Fireball.
  3. Bake according to package directions and let cool completely.
  4. Using the back of a wooden spoon, poke holes all over cake. Pour caramel over holes, using the wooden spoon to spread caramel as necessary.
  5. Make Fireball frosting: In a large bowl, combine butter, 2 cups powdered sugar, vanilla, salt, and remaining 1/4 cup Fireball.
  6. Using a hand mixer, beat until smooth. Add the remaining 2 cups powdered sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
