These figures are known as Wedgwood style. I have seen instructions for making them in older British cake decorating books but you have to have a piece of figured Wedgwood to start with.

Google "cake thame" as they sell some similar molds, and may help you find exactly what you are looking for.

I agree with BakingIrene about needing a piece of Wedgwood. I have over 500 pieces of it (unfortunately when I get into something I can go nuts). I actually have some of the Wedgwood molds that came from the factory. I bought them at a boot sale while in England. I glanced at some of the stuff that I have and came up with the same as this Ebay auction. The figures themselves are a nice size. If you could get these I would since that is a very good price. Not the exact figure on the cake, but a nice one. They look to have nice undercutting which is important.

The more I look at the cake the more I think those are Wedgwood molds. The trees next to the lady and the top round tier look the same as some of my stuff.

I completely love this cake. Absolutely in awe. I want to get remarried, and marry this cake!

You could get some Amazing Mold Putty. Then buy a figurine, such as at http://www.mythandlegendcollectibles.com/products/ancient-greek-and-roman (you can sort by price) or search eBay by "(roman, greek) goddess." e.g.,

On eBay, don't search for "roman figurine" because Roman is a manufacturer and you'll get all sorts of irrelevant things.

Here is a cake that I really like. Looks just like Wedgwood jasperware.

Renee,

 

I just got those Grecian ladies molds from Sugar Art Molds on Etsy. I'm not sure if they carry the one that Confectionary Perfection is looking for but it's worth taking a look. I'd certainly ask!

Now, can anyone tell me the best blue to create the Wedgwood blue? I've experimented and can't quite get it right. :-/

AThanks for the link. Wilton has a cornflower blue that is good. If it is not the right shade that you want it's a good base to start from and experiment with.
