You will get many different answers for this, but if I were doing it, I'd bring it out and let it sit for at least a half hour to 45 minutes before I started to finish it up.

I've iced a cold cake before without any problems.

i've iced a cold cake no problems but other times i did have problems. it seems to depend on if there is a huge amount of difference in temps from your fridge and if the cake is brought out into a hot and humid environment. where i live it can be 30-40 degrees in the a.m. and be 70-80 and humid by the afternoon and if i don't close up the house and turn on the ac i will have a blow out. just my experience : )
