A friend gave me a really nice pup from this cactus and I am hoping someone can ID it. I like to know what plants I have. Thanks.

I think it is mammillaria sphaerica. The blooms look a lot like those on my little plant, but I had just never seen one that big. But some googling shows that they get that big.
It is what it is!
