Preheat oven to 350°F, with rack on lower middle or middle position. Generously grease Bundt pan and set aside.
Filling: Beat cream cheese cubes with sugar on medium high, until completely smooth. Add egg, cinnamon, and vanilla, beating until smooth. Transfer to a covered container and chill in fridge.
Cake: In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, all spice, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg. Whisk together and set aside.
In the bowl of stand mixer, using paddle attachment, cream butter and both sugars until fully mixed and fluffy. Beat in eggs, oil, pumpkin, yogurt, and vanilla, until mixture is smooth.
Fold dry ingredients into the wet ingredients by hand, using rubber spatula.
Pour almost half of batter into grease Bundt pan, filling the grooves. Using wooden spoon, try to carve out a generous tunnel in the batter, and fill the tunnel with cream cheese filling. Filling will probably overflow the tunnel, but this helps to keep the filling together. Gently pour in remaining cake batter.
Bake 55 to 60 minutes or just until toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean, with few tender crumbs attached. Cool cake in pan 15 to 20 minutes; transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.
Glaze: Beat softened cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth and fluffy, about 4 minutes on medium high. Add rest of glaze ingredients, stirring by hand. Add 1 teaspoon of milk at a time, as needed, to reach your desired glaze consistency.
