Maybe a cream cheese based frosting? 

Like this:

6 ounces white chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
4 tablespoons (1⁄2 stick) butter, at room temperature 
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
3 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

I wouldnt use a canned frosting, I used those when doing cupcakes in my apartment that wasnt even super hot and they melted all over the place.  I used a buttercream thats stiff, the recipe from http://www.wilton.com hasnt melted on me yet.  You can just add a bit more shortening or sugar to stiffen it up a bit.  If you are super concerned about it melting, I would just put a thin layer of frosting and not a big fluffy design that could melt and go all over the place.  Good luck!
