Yes, you should be able to stack early.   With proper support there should be no problems w/icing cracking as the weight of thecakes will be supported by the support system.

Thank you Kakeladi would you think wooden dowels will be enough support?

I have never worked with fruit cakes but certainly that should work just fine.  You don't say what size the cakes are but use about 1 for ecvery 2 or 3" of cake.  In other words in a 10" cake use 4 or 5.
