Real on the right. This is one from Charm City cakes west when I visited a few weeks back. Painting the leopard spots was the most rewarding. They came out great. I just used acrylic paint before baking. The blue tier is marbled, the metallic tier with the little leafs could have been a little better now that I look at it. The leaf sizes are off. I couldn't find a candy can ribbon so I drew lines on a strip of paper. The airbrush tier is awesome too. It was white at first then I dusted on bright eyeshadow.
