I am planning a competition cake which involves a person shape from the waist up. I intend to stack 5 cakes 14 in by 9 in squarely on top of each other and then shape only the top tier as a head shape. I am not allowed to use internal supports. I know there;s a risk of it falling over but I intend to be extremely careful there but what about it sinking? I have used a madiera cake and over baked to make it more solid (no one is going to eat it). Anyone got any advise?

If this has to be real cake, then I would NOT enter such a contest. Making a stable head on a neck out of cake is impossible without internal support.
