I'm making a 3-layer Topsy Turvy cake (this will be my first one) for my daughter's birthday, and I'm wanting to know what kind of cake should I use? Will any recipe do? What about off the shelf cake mixes? I'm worried about it splitting and cracking, so I'm guessing I'll need a sturdy cake. I'd also like each tier to be a different flavor, any suggestions on yummy, sturdy recipes?

Thanks for the help!
