Cream Cheese Frosting - can it be piped?

My cousin and I are planning a baby shower for our best friend and she's requested a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. My questions are: will I be able to pipe a simple border around the cake with the cream cheese frosting? Is it firm enough to hold for a few hours? We won't be outside and the shower is in early April so it will not be hot either. Or should I use a buttercream for the decorative piping?
