Starting at the short edge, roll up cake with Kitchen towel. Transfer rolled cake to cooling rack; cool completely.
For the icing: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, melted chocolate and caramel topping with an electric mixer. Gently stir in whipped topping. To fill a cake, gently unroll cake. Spread about 1/3 of the icing evenly over the surface. Gently re-roll cake (without towel). Trim off ends of the roll using a serrated knife. Transfer to a serving platter. Using a spatula, ice the pumpkin roll, alternate rows of pecan halves and icing shells. Cover and refrigerate 2-3 hours or until ready to serve.
Pumpkin Roll Cake doesn’t have to be used in the fall but is favored year round. However, if you prefer to not make pumpkin because you prefer a different flavor, you can make a chocolate or strawberry cake roll instead.
These pumpkin cake rolls or other flavored cake rolls can be frozen for up to one month or possibly a little longer. Wrap it tightly with plastic wrap, twice. Then place in a freezer bag. Make these for the holidays in advance when you have time. Remove from the freezer the morning of the day you wish to serve them. You can then slice them down, and serve at the next party or family dinner you attend.
