Layered cake

Hiya people! Been stalking this comm for ages (and man is it awesome!) but this is my first time posting. So here goes...

I've come up with what seems like quite an awesome idea for my boyfriend's birthday cake - however, I'm not overly fond of cake myself and while I'm quite handy with cupcakes, I haven't really delved into cake-making before. Basically, I would like to make a cake similar to the Strawberry Cake shared in a previous post (thanks to coldagain). I'd like to use blueberries instead of strawberries, but I'm not sure what cake to use. I was feeling adventurous and thinking rum cake, but I don't really drink rum so I'm not sure if it would go! Does anyone have any thoughts on this, or a favourite cake recipe that works well in layered cakes?

Thank you for any advice you can give me! =)
