It may well do if you don't have a clean up crew.
You can thaw the cube and feed half of the worms and the put the rest in the fridge- I've kept them a couple of days in the fridge, and they were fine.
Or if you have a good sharp knife just chop the cube.
If they are in a smallish tank, then definitely thaw first. I use a net to thaw and strain the worms and either hand feed, or, typically just swish the net in the tanks and watch the ensuing feeding frenzy!
In a large tank, especially before a water change, I sometimes drop the cube in, but it doesn't trigger the same response. My glass perch go up and nudge it, then come back and stare at me with their big ugly mugs as if to say 'well?? Come on! Where's the food then??'
