Topic: clown pics/toppers from late 70s/early 80s

ok, I know this is a long shot, but I am searching for a set of clown head cake toppers that were on my fiance's first birthday cake. I want to replicate the exact cake for him that his now deceased mother made him in 1980. I have tried ebay, amazon, etc and found many vintage clown pics/toppers, but not the ones I'm looking for! I figured I would put this post out there in case any one might by chance have an old stash, or know of some way I might not have thought of to track some down. Im attaching a couple of photos of him and mom with the cake. The clowns are kind of creppy and hobo-ish, lol, and Im not even sure if they were a wilton product, but Im guessing probably were. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, Thanks!!!!
His birthday is July 15th, if I cant get a hold of them by then I may try to replicate them out of fondant or something. Thanks for looking!

I checked my 1980 yearbook and the clown heads are a Wilton product. If you would like me to scan the page and send it to you please e-mail me at

Thanks for the reply.
However, I'm looking specifically for the ones posted in this thread. They're hard to find. So any information that anyone can give me on them will be helpful.

I found the info. They are called "Comical Clowns".
