Rather than using a standard buttercream recipe I would like to try marshmallow frosting on cupcakes. I have silicone "flower pot" cupcake molds and want to decorate as flowers. So I'll be piping flower petals and leafs on the cupcakes in various colors. Will a marshmallow frosting keep its shape and hold in this particular case? Below is the recipe I'd like to use...it doesn't employee eggs whites but rather the store bought creme such as Fluff. My thoughts are that the creme will act somewhat similar to crisco and therefore serve my purposes. Any input is appreciated. Thank you!

1 cup unsalted butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
7 ounce jar of marshmallow creme
2 cups confectioners sugar
2-4 tablespoons light cream

I tried a Marshmallow frosting on my peanut butter cupcakes and I had to refrigerate it first to stiffen it up. It piped out nicely but after sitting out and getting back to room temp it started to sag and get soft again. I'm still looking for the perfect "marshmallow" frosting.
