Probably the most important symbol to anyone in the Paramedic/EMS field is the Star of Life. It is worn on their uniforms. I would never use a generic picture of an ambulance for a paramedic. They are very loyal to their corps. If you want to do this, get photos of their ambulances to work from.

Here is a link to the star and it's history:

Here's what came up when "ambulance cake" was put into the Images searches at

Altavista.com:

And here's what came up from Google:

thanks a lot!
i didn't do altavista but googled myself already. now hmm i think i do msn search.

sometimes i think it takes me longer to get ideas together than it takes to make the actual cake. Don't you think so?

It always takes me longer to design the cake than it does to make it. And then, I find myself changing the design as I go along. I have two cakes in my head for two years now, and although I have the themes and decorations decided upon, I just can't get the structure of the tiers right. Hopefully, by March, all things will find their places for me.

Make sure you post a pic when you're done!

funny ( not so funny actually) thing was when i asked the girl to send me his uniform and car pictures. she did and when i opened them the pictures were right from the action and blood was everywhere. omg, it must have been a car accident or something. very scary. strange things we see just to decorate one cake icon_confused.gif
