split a number to Date format

I have experimental data in spreadsheet format.  The first column is a time stamp in the format 111205020000.  
If I could parse or split the number 111205020000 into {11,12,05,02,00,00} and replace the first 11 with 2011, the Date commands would work fine. I can do the replacing, but am having difficulty seeing how to split the number into  {11,12,05,02,00,00}.

DateString[{2011, 12, 05, 02, 00, 00}] gives
"Mon 5 Dec 2011 02:00:00"

Any help to convert my number to the right Date format would be appreciated. I am using Mathematica 8.

Thanks in Advance
Derek
