For tall, flat structures like that, I stack and dowel as you mentioned with cake boards every 4" or so of cake. I get DH to cut and drill a custom cake board for me so that the dowels (or threaded rods) are firmly secured to the board and then put the cake down over the dowels. Don't forget to mark and drill the cake boards before putting cake on them.....
