I would think that you would carve after you filled them. Would be easier to carve as well. I carved a cake this past weekend and actually filled it and did the crumb coat and then carved it out.. it was much easier to carve. Then I put another crumb coat over the area that was carved and later frosted.

Did you fill whilst frozen?

yes, I almost always do. Fill, do crumb coat and then refridgerate.
