SharePoint 2013- How do you apply a site template to existing sites?

Hello,

I have already created the Information Architecture site setup for our SharePoint 2013 environment. So I have the top level portal, with sub sites, and web's.

I then just created a custom Site Template that I want to retroactively apply to those skeleton's that I have setup.

There is no content on these sites yet, but we have added permissions, so I don't want to blow these sites away and have to re-create them. Is there a powershell command that will let me install the wsp to already existing sites?

Thanks,
Comment

So in conclusion, what I'm asking just isn't possible globally. You have to manually recreate on each site?
