Good question!  I ran into a double modifier myself a while back and was confused because The Rules of UEB do not explicitly cover this.  The consensus I found is that it is ok for a modifier to be followed by another modifier, and then the letter.  You can see an  official example of this in BANA's recently updated Guidelines for Braille Transcription of Languages Other Than English, in the section on Latin.

So in this case, you can braille [caron above the following letter] [umlaut above the following letter] [u].
