Flower-Topped Cake

We have a "pound" cake store here where one can buy their cakes that are decorated with a creamy white frosting that seems to drip down the sides.  They come in regular size (large) and mini (small) size.  The center of them,which is really a hole, is then decorated with a flower.
They look wonderful and the price is also pretty steep.  
Saturday at a class, I learned how to make a similar version of the small size by using a small bundt cake pan from Nordic Ware and a cake mix.  The frosting was a cream cheese recipe and using a pastry bag without any tip for the round single drip or a small round writing tip for smaller drips.
We topped them with a small gerber daisy, packaged them in cellophane with a ribbon that matched the color of the daisy. ( Doesn't anything look spectacular and special when packaged in cellophane?  I love it!)  Our little package looked great and expensive and would make a great little birthday surprise for anyone.  It was an easy fun project that anyone could do.  It was especially easy because our little mini bundt cakes were already made for us by a very nice teacher.  This would be a great gift for--
Happy Spring, Happy Birthday, Just Because You're You, I Love You! 
(Now, I just have to get the Nordic Ware pan:)
