Could you tell me what the green and purple berry-type sprigs are on this cake?

Are they real? I hope they aren't toxic...

They may not be real berry sprigs; they may be artificial. Silk flowers are often used to decorate cakes.

There are photos of some berry sprays here that look similar; check out the ones called 'Artificial Berry Spray in Plum 23" Tall and 'Spring Berry Spray in Lime Green - 21" Tall:
