I did one a while back with pastry pride in my photos. It was 9" and 6" vanilla cake with strawberry filling. It was my first stacked cake, too. Just make sure you have support (dowels) for the top cake just like you would any other stacked cake. I think I put in three dowels for the top.

It should be no different than stacking a fondant or buttercream cake. Like the other poster said the support system is what holds up the cake, so the top tier isn't really resting on the lower cake. Hope this helps.

Support support support. I attached a pic of a stacked buttercream cake I did this weekend. You can see the tiers aren't even close to sinking into the next tier. Even the topper is supported so you can't see sinkage and the topper just grazes the top tier. The bottom tier was a VERY soft chocolate cake and it is hard to see in the picture but the middle tier was a good 8-9" tall WASC cake so it was heavy but none of the weight rested on that soft bottom tier at all.

I have successfully tiered 4 levels in whipped cream, used dowels similar to a reg. cake. Just make sure it stays chilled. I use Richs whipped topping-would not try with regular whipped cream. Below is a picture of a fruit and cream cake. Good luck.
