what experience do you have? do you have a standard sponge cake recipe for bc cakes? it may hold up to the extra weight of fondant, if not there are plenty recipes here, for either scratch or mix.

I would highly recommend getting sugarshacks DVDs Perfecting the Art of Buttercream, Flawless Fondant, and Successful Stacking. www.sugaredproductions.com
If you've never stacked a tiered cake and smoothing and fondant are new to you it would be wise to start practicing now.

The wasc recipe is dense and holds up really well with fondant - I use it with different flavors of cake mix too, sometimes I even offer chocolate chip (minis) and people love it! It does tend to not get as tall as I'd like it, so plan on a little more mix than you'd normally use to get the height.

Just make sure and do plenty of reading here on CC to learn what you need to know about filling, stacking, doweling, and covering with fondant techniques for a tiered cake. I remember my first one - it can be nerve wracking, but you can do it!
