I freeze my cakes all the time with great results.  Carrot cakes benefit especially because to me, they are one of those cakes whose flavors improve with time.  I have frozen both torted and untorted.  If  I do tort my layers,  I wrap each one individually, then stack them and wrap again together.    I have filled and frosted frozen layers with excellent results.   The cakes thaw slowly in the fridge after I frost them...and since I always deliver a cold cake anyway  it comes to room temp at the event.    If I don't tort the layers before freezing, I take out the the frozen cakes and unwrap them and let them thaw a bit.  It doesn't take that long and I cut the layers while the cake is still pretty cold.    Makes crumb coating a breeze.
