Skylkladie, I'm not sure what shape you were after, but the 1st thought that came into my mind was something I'd seen in one of my books. "Pretty Party Cakes" by Peggy Porschen has instructions on how to make cylindrical 'treasure boxes' with bases & lids - perhaps you could adapt this to something a little more vase like? Unfortunately if our printer/scanner hadn't died a few weeks ago I would have scanned it & sent it to you. :{

I hope this helps a bit - so maybe see if you local library has a copy or purchase a copy for yourself (I initially borrowed a copy from the library myself & loved the ideas in it so much I ended up buying the book!)

Cheers!

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:
