Can this be done?? I'm going to attempt a mad hatter cake this weekend, simple 2 tier, and not too wonky in size as DH doesn't really like them. So basically just a little tapering on the bottom and perhaps a slight angle on the top. not to difficult.

But i want it to be alternating chocolate and white cake. I'm planning on doing an 8x3 chocolate, and 1 layer of an 8x2 in white, torte the chocolate and add teh white between the layers, to give it the added height, and just to liven up the flavor. But since i'm going to be doing some shaving and shaping of the cake, i plan on freezeing it. Not frozen solid, just enough to make the cake easier to carve. I plan on using a peanut butter mousse for the filling.

So once i torte, and fill the alternate layers, can i still freeze the cake for carving??

I do it this way--be sure your icing dam is deep enough to endure the sculpting.
