Dummy's a cool idea for the extra height. Just smear buttercream/icing on top the dummy and put your cake board on it. Then smear buttercream/icing on the cake board and put your cake on it. You can drive a dowel through the cake into the dummy for stability, but it's not an absolute must.

Yes, just decorate it like it's one big cake.
