I just bought a Christmas pan from Wilton. ( It's the one with the individual christmas trees and gingerbread men). I would love to make them for the family but I am unsure how to decorate them. I mean do I frost the whole cake or just the top? Or if any one has any pictures to share that would be great to. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I'm not sure which pan(s) your talking about. Can you explain a little more?

Give us a link to the pan on Wilton's site so we can make suggestions.
Usually there are several ideas that come with each pan or you can go the Wilton's site for pix.

How about frozen buttercream transfers?

I guess a transfer would work , but I am looking for ideas that are a little less time consuming. I on a really tight schedule. If anyone has any ideas I am open to any suggestions.

TIA- Joy

Use a gingerbread cake recipie. (I like the boxed one) then just frost bits and pieces in white. Make sure to brush it first with simple syrup to keep it all moist.

Thank you for the idea. But do I use the simple syrup on the christmas trees or just frost and decorate.

I was thinking if it is a gingerbread flavor, not to frost the whole thing. Just the outline and details. That way it would look like a big fat cookie.

The details are baked in, so if you frost, you will lose them... Just a PS glaze is what I would do.
