Take it out of the freezer tonight and put it in the fridge. Take it out of the fridge in the morning and let it come to room temp. Torte and fill it and let it sit for at least 3 hrs so it settles. If you skip that step you might end up with a big air bubble trapped under your fondant. Then crumb coat and cover with fondant.
Hope that helps! icon_smile.gif
Good luck!

I would take it out of the freezer now, cut into layers in about an hour (while it's still very cold and firm...easier to torte), and fill. Wrap the whole thing in clear wrap (cake board and all) and put in your fridge over night so it can settle. Ice in the morning and once it's either cruster or firm (I don't know what kind you're using), cover with fondant. I put my cakes back into the fridge when I'm done decorating...but I live in an area that is very, very dry. Good luck icon_smile.gif
