I think there is going to be a question of detail with regard to using  
Smaller chocolate molds usually have special details that won't  
reproduce with a
thicker gingerbread mixture.
Silicone molds have a certain amount of flexibility. Release shouldn't  
be a problem.
What about using a nonstick Nordicware pan or cakelet pans?
In any case, I'd suggest practicing well in advance.
