Note from Ricardo

Freeze the dough at this stage to make the cookies easier to cut out.

To get a thick and opaque frosted effect, wait for the cookies to cool before applying the icing. However, by applying the icing while the cookies are still hot, your gingerbread men will have a shiny, thin, almost translucent glaze. Once the cookies are iced, you can decorate them as you like.
