Maybe you can do vertical stripes going up the cake and then some fondant ribbon roses on the top in a few colors (I would've suggested a bow to look like a present but it won't have enough time to dry).

What if you did the petal effect with alternate color icings? Maybe like the vertical look on this blog:
