I usually let mines thaw in the counter for an hour or so and start torting.

Cakes defrost pretty quick...I would say take them out like 30 minutes before you plan to decorate or so depending on how big they are. I have taken mine out and they are fine to decorate.

cakes do defrost quickly. i usually take mine out about 30 minutes before. because i don't split cakes well, i need mine on the firm side. my cakes are usually partly frozen while i'm frosting but by the time anyone eats it, which is usually a few hours later, it's completely thawed and at room temp.
