The lids are usually styrofoam or foamcore boards covered with fondant icon_biggrin.gif

You can get them any place you get your cake dummies. You can actually get them at Michaels in the floral accessories dept. you may need to get a styro foam cutter there too. You can use the cutter to trim any way you need too but most of the time you just leave it flat. The illusion is that its a lid. The flowers are attached to the top. Use a dowel rod place in the cake below and extending up to meet the "lid". Good Luck. If you're a beginner. Really Good Luck.
