take a look at the displacement mod that should get you on the right path :)

i'd try adding a ffd modifier after the first cellular map goes on- that is of course if adjusting the cellular map doesn't work

nah- ffd is a modifier
there's ffd sphere, cylinder and box with two below them that has user defined parameters
it sets up a grid that you can modify which in turn modifies the underlying mesh

ok- then back off the spherify modifier- put it to far less than 100% or just don't use it at all
