I use the same recipe as Jchuck.  As a matter of fact, she is the one that shared it with me.  I have never made the additions that she uses.  The frosting comes out very creamy.  It tastes almost like pudding.  I have made the cream cheese version, chocolate, added fruit curds,  and just yesterday I added some Dulche de Leche for a caramel flavored frosting.  The sweetness is similar to SMBC.  Everyone always loves it.
I like your cake (large roses & all) much better than the original.  Don't like how the original has a silver board with a gold cake.  Can't really understand what she didn't like about it.
Perhaps one of these --lol
I used this tutorial and placed a piece of styrofoam inside.  This way I just stuck the wires into the styrofoam to hold in place.  Worked beautifully.
You do need to find room.  It is really good.  I've already sent this recipe to 3 of my "cake friends".  I know they are like me, always looking for new recipes to try out.  
You can do a purse cake that has very little carving like this one http://cakejournal.com/tutorials/how-to-make-a-purse-cake/
Okay, I baked this today.  Since I only needed a 6 inch cake to decorate, I made some home.  It was calling out to me and I just had a slice.  It is DELICIOUS!   This will definitely be my go to banana cake recipe from now on.  Doesn't even need any frosting.  YUMMMMMMMMM  So glad that I decided to read this thread.  Thank you.
I'm sure she will.  It means so much more because her mom made it.  Wishing her a very Happy Birthday.
Personally I would place a board & dowels under the head.  I am no expert by any means so perhaps someone with more experience has a better idea.
It is possible to make cream cheese SMBC but you have to add the SMBC to the cream cheese.  Here is the recipe & method that was posted right here on cc http://www.cakecentral.com/b/recipe/jennifer-bratkos-cream-cheese-swiss-meringue-buttercream
