For sure, wait until the cake is completely cooled. Then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Do not torte a cake while it is still warm , it will rip to shreds. It needs to cool completely, if you can refrigerate/freeze it for a bit so that it is cold (not frozen, if it freezes then deforst before cutting) it will cut easier.
You can use dental floss keep the string really tight and levle - you can use a really long serrated knife too. I've used my jelly roll pan edge as a guide to keep the knife level.

Good luck and have lots of fun!
