Rosemary Watson used to make beautiful vases for the tops of her cakes. She would mold wet sugar in a champagne flute, hollow out a space on top before the sugar dried, then allowed the form to dry completely, then she'd cover it with gum paste lace pieces. She would put a ball of green gumpaste in the top, stick the flowers in, and when it all dried it was very stable.
Here's a link to a pix of one of here cakes with a sugar vase:
