I was wondering if anybody knows where to find the elephants to go onto a traditional Indian Wedding Cake?

Here is the picture that he is wanting his cake to look like. I am stumped on the elephants. I need to ask them where they got the picture.

Any help would be appreciated.

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.

Oh, if anyone was curious -
top layer: carrot
second layer: chocolate hazelnut
third layer: vanilla raspberry
bottom layer: chocolate hazelnut
it took 6 hours; $600 btw
(I've been reading the comments underneath it.)
