Ive never used fondant before but this looks easy enough to be my first fondant project. Most likely I will only have the very top layer as actual cake, the rest will be fondant covered styrofoam. (cause who could eat that much cake or carry it!) It will be Kaiden's personal cake everyone else will get cup cakes. That way I wont have to worry if he gets spit all over it while blowing out the candles. lol.
