Is Stacking Method Different For Bc Or Fondant?

I've done stacking, mind you nothing more than 2 tiers, with fondant but I've got a 3 tiered cake to do for September. I'm leaning towards BC with fondant accents if I can get the BC smooth enough but otherwise will be back to fondant. My question is, is the method for stacking the same in that it's still dowels on each level, cardboard between the layers and the dowel down the center? Do the dowels prevent the upper layers from sinking into the BC? Thanks.

Cardboard between the "tiers", not layers (as a general rule, you can stack 4" of cake before you need to add support and another cardboard or separator plate).

The dowels prevent the upper layers from sinking into the cake below, smashing it, or causing it to collapse.
