I’m making one real cake and three dummy cakes. All will be placed on separate rising tiers. How far in advance can I ice the dummy cakes and have them remain looking freshly iced?

You should ice the dummy cakes at the same time as you ice the real cake. Then store all the tiers in the same manner, whether they are real or dummies.
