For now yes, it works. I never recommend installing a newer OS on an older host with Hyper-V. With current licensing, it is rarely necessary and even more rarely worthwhile. But there aren't any published and documented IC incompatibilities for now...

you cannot add a hyper-visor on top of another hyper-visor

Is there a particular reason why you can't upgrade the host to Server 2012 R2?

Unless you have other roles on the host that can't be migrated, I can't really see a reason not to upgrade the host OS to 2012 R2 as you get better functionality and a bunch of new features with Hyper-V in 2012 R2. See this link if you'd like to find out more: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/library/dn282278.aspx#bkmk_sharedvhd

To answer your original question, yes 2012 R2 is definitely supported as a VM on a 2012 Hyper-V host as per the Technet article which Waddah Dahah posted.
