Mushroom cloud

How would you say mushroom cloud in Spanish. Es una nube de polvo/humo que se forma después de detonar una bomba atómica y se parece en forma al hongo o champiñón. ¿Sería nube en forma de hongo o algo así? Gracias

EDIT: After some searching, I think nube de hongo is the best option. Do you agree?

You would translate mushroom to Spanish as Bomba Atomica.

Not a mushroom, a mushroom cloud. David was asking about a cloud in the shape of a mushroom.

all of Rusty's options are understandable.
I usually use "hongo nuclear", but I don't know the specific one.
