The first time we made a fire engine cake, I had the pleasure of visiting the local downtown San Jose Fire Department. Sergio gave me a tour, showing off the different trucks, letting me take a ton of pictures, and even posing for his own photo shoot. Well, OK, he was really too cool to let me take too many of him, but I know a few friends of mine that would love to imagine spending an afternoon with a fireman. Let them think that slipping on my shoes for a moment, they’d have a great view and could just stay there dreaming.
Michelle is the proud daughter of a retired Driver Engineer for the Santa Clara Fire Department. She was so excited to honor her father with this homage to the many years he served wearing this helmet. That’s right, he was one of those men in uniform fighting the good fight. Please try to contain your excitement, ladies. He’s also someone’s daddy. Or does that even melt your heart, too? Hmmm…
