Try something like this:

  frame = gtk_frame_new (NULL);
  gtk_widget_set_name (frame, "osso-speeddial");
  gtk_container_set_border_width (GTK_CONTAINER (frame), 0);

  alignment = gtk_alignment_new (0.5,

  gtk_alignment_set_padding (GTK_ALIGNMENT (alignment), 15, 15, 15, 15);

  gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (alignment), yourwidget);

This will put yourwidget in a frame themed like the speeddial applet.

Sorry I didn't get you, do you want to trigger an update of the UI from
another process? If so you could use DBus for instance.
