Rice Krispy Treats, or a foam head like you would put a wig on. Personally I would use RKT.

AI have made thus cake using the foam head and shaved off the nose. And the one I bought did not have ears. It worked perfectly.

You can sometimes find the foam heads at a local beauty supply store but they are pretty inexpensive on ebay which is where I bought mine.

Use an 8 inch pan to see if your proportions will work- also don't forget to add a neck! It's hard to tell from your pic of the head if there is a neck. RKT keeps for awhile.
