For the most part, yes. Short-term storage is fine. But every recipe is different, so it's important to do a few freezer tests if you want to do this regularly. Mimi

Many wholesale bakeries decorate cakes and ship them out frozen.

Also, many top tiers of wedding cakes are frozen, as well as leftover all-occasion cakes. As long as they are wrapped/packaged properly, they'll taste fine when thawed.

If you're talking about freezing for just a couple or few days, it's fine on the counter at room temperature as long as you aren't using perishable fillings that require refrigeration.

How long do cakes last in the fridge before it goes bad?
