You should be able to use any regular cake...Just don't put the fondant on really thick if you're worried about it dragging the cake edges down or something. Roll it out so that it's no more than 1/4" thick (less is better). If you refrigereate the cake before you cover it it will firm up some, too, and make it easier to cover. You could always just use a pound cake if you're REALLY worried, but you don't need to be.

I've never used a special cake to do fondant. I know some people say you need more of a pound cake type cake, but I have put fondant on just boxed cake mixes.

I don't do wedding cakes, just cakes for family though.
