I was wondering if anybody knows where to find the elephants to go onto a traditional Indian Wedding Cake?
I would try heading to Cost Plus or a World Market. They usually have a lot of imported Indian items in stock, and I know I've seen elephants like this there. If you don't have that, maybe a Pier One? Or, as a last resort, the internet.
Good luck! BTW, I love the piped on paisleys...the cake you are trying to do is beautiful. Please post pics of your finished product!
The cake came from here - http://the-evil-plankton.deviantart.com/art/Red-Indian-wedding-cake-137450822
There is a larger photo, and s/he mentions how s/he did some of it.
