Yes, bake them. The padding around the back of the heel will probably compress a little, pulling your toe back, probably enough.
Also, anytime you buy a pair of skates that can be baked, you should bake them. It drastically shortens break in time, and makes the skates fit like they were supposed to. Many modern skates won't ever break in properly without it.
And D is regular width. The one 05s probably came in regular and wide, these can be ordered with all precise shoe widths. Not retail, retail will have D and EE, but custom you can order any width and any heel.
