I've decided to give handmade cupcakes as favours at an upcoming party, but need to know what brand name - or store's own - icing/frosting can sit at room temperature for a few hours.

I should mention that I'm in the UK, and may not be able to get hold of US-only products (which sucks because having been to the US last year, and tried things like Honey Buns, I am now thoroughly depressed because they don't sell them in England Sad ).

Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated ^_^ x

Sorry, as I'm in Canada I can't help with a brand name, but most the time I make my own frosting anyway.
I'm jealous of some of the baking items you can get over there whenever I buy my British cake decorating magazines.

I think you should be fine with any creamy butter or vegetable lard based frosting.  The worst thing that might happen is a thin crust on top. 
Stay away from a whipped cream based frosting because it will separate over time if not refrigerated.
