This project is a 6-inch cake, so it would be the perfect top tier for your special cake! The recipe for this cake makes about 6 cups batter, so you would probably need to at least double the recipe for a larger bottom tier. Once you've chosen the size of cake you want for that tier, check out the handy table here on our site http://www.bakedecoratecelebrate.com/techniques/amountbakingguide.cfm?cat=1 that tells you how much batter you will need for that pan size, and how long it needs to bake.
Once your cake layers are baked and completely cooled, stack each cake individually, and prepare the bottom, larger cake for stacked construction http://www.bakedecoratecelebrate.com/techniques/stackedconstruction.cfm . The candy wrap might be a little harder to do by yourself - enlist family and friends to lend an extra hand (or 2!) to wrap it around the cake.
