Red Velvet Cake questions.

Saturday is my youngest sons 20th birthday and he has requested a red velvet cake. I got a really good looking recipe from the site The Joy of Baking. http://joy of baking.com In the instructions it states to freeze the cake layers for an hour before cutting in half. It is a 4 layer cake made with 2 9 inch cakes and cream cheese frosting. My questions are: Can I freeze it overnight? Will this compromise the cake? How long should I thaw it before cutting and frosting? I would like to make the cake Friday evening and do the cutting and frosting on Saturday afternoon. I am trying to get as much done in advance as possible.
