I suggest you reinstall Skype.   Copy and paste this link into your browser:

 

skype.com/go/getskype-full

 

That will let you dwonload the run the full installer.  That should recreate the desktop shortcut you lost.

Re-install skype with this link:

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_5.10.0.116.msi

 

This will restore your desktop icon.
