It's actually a kind of cookie/cake thing. Okay, so it's a large gingerbread boy. I am going to use bc to decorate. How much bc will I need to decorate it? I'ts pretty big. I have bad decorating skills, so it needs to be simple. Like maybe a pink shirt, blue jeans? (going to be a girl) How do I do hair and eyes and nose and smile?

I'm really scared. My cousins always request for our homeade treats for Christmas, and I'm doing this for both of them.

And I REALLY need help on how to transport it. Didn't think to buy cake boxes. they're both only 1 in thick at the most. I'm thinking of trimming a cardboard box, covering the inside/outsied in pretty paper, and making a top?

Oh, and I'll be decorating these dealys on Friday. shall I freeze the gingerbread boys or will they be okay for a day and a half?

First I would say no need to freeze, they should be fine. IMHO
Second, the hair would be really simple to do with the grass tip.
Are you using buttercream frosting? Then just use a "writing tip" to make your mouth, you could use candies for the eyes and nose.
Hope this helps.
