Do you know if the lid is actually made of something edible? It might be a dryed piece of fondant that has been painted to look like wood. I would roll a piece let it harden for a couple of days then air brush it. Othersie you could make it out of foam core and cover it with fondant. that way it would not be as fragile. good luck.

Lauri and her team made one of these on Amazing Wedding Cakes and I am pretty sure that they used either gumpaste or fondant left out to dry for a couple days. They put skewers in it before it dried and then just stuck it in place.
