I have a cake due on the weekend, and have baked the cakes, was going to freeze them, but I usually fill them, and stuff before I freeze. I am thinking twice about it now, as the filling will be fresh strawberries and buttercream.... Will I have a disaster?

You cannot freeze cakes filled with fresh fruit. Freezing causes the water in the fruit to form sharp crystals of ice that tear the membranes of the fruit, so that when thawed, all the water (juice) in the fruit weeps.

Cakes filled with a cooked fruit filling (curds, jams, preserves, sleeve fillings, "pie" filling) can be safely frozen.
