You might also check out the Advanced Fondant course on Craftsy, a lot of the techniques on this cake are covered in this class.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I've done open lids with a single layer covered in fondant.  Is it possible these lids are styrofoam covered in fondant for greater stability?

I've done more of these than I can count.  And yes, that's the best thing to use because it's the lightest. To OP, it also helps to put 2-3 dowels in to hold up the lid and a "smoosh of fondant with a little tylose glue or even water to secure it.  If you don't dowel it, the weight of the lid can squish the cake down and cause the fondant to ripple.
