I have a friend who doesn't really like cake but loves frosting.  I was thinking as a thank you for her that I could potentially pipe flowers on skewers and give them to her?  Would they stay on there?  I've only seen people pipe and remove flowers from skewers.  Any other ideas?

Pipe them on candy/sucker 'sticks' - they should stay  on just fine.

Just wondering about decorating a melon instead of a cake???

I guess you could either cut a piece off the bottom to balance the whole melon on a board or stand, cover it with fondant and decorate as a cake, or halve the melon and decorate a cake board placed on the cut side????

Does she like cookies?  You can frost/decorate them for her.

I'd probably whip my best batch of frosting, put it in a cute jar with a ribbon and spoon and just give her that! Maybe a package of cookies or graham crackers with it for dipping:)

I know you said she loves icing and that is why you were wanting to use it but what about some modelling  chocolate roses or maybe a cute jar with icing in it and some 'dipping' items, long narrow biscuits, compatible fruits etc.

you can pipe roses and just put them on parchment same like you would place them on a cake only in row after row -- i've piped jillions of buttercream rosebud mints -- in earlier decades a staple at many weddings -- just add peppermint oil --

i've given gifts of butter roses -- pretty for the table on holidays --

hershey's perfectly perfect chocolate frosting makes superb chocolate roses -- they air dry overnight and can just be picked up with your fingers and are FABULOUS! -- but vanilla buttercream does great too --

oh hey -- try the white balsamic buttercream it's a faux cream cheese -- would be LOVELY as a gift --

and an idea i've never tried is to fashion a piece of foam covered with parchment to sit securely in a shallow basket -- pipe a plethora of flowers covering it from sea to shining sea -- they will adhere to the parchment and look pretty in the basket for a presentation type thing

thank you cupcake.goddess -- they really dress up the table -- i made different sizes -- big oversized ones to pass -- little ones to place by each bread plate or whatever
