I did a replica of that building. For the onion domes I used a ball shaped polystyrene and just molded the fondant around it to give me the onion shape.

 

Here is my cake

You could use a Hershey's kiss mold. It's not exactly the same shape but close.

I think it makes a difference if you put the word "cake" first, so that's the first thing Google tries to match, then St. Basil's after that.
