I know that its something something puppy dog tails...what are the first two things? I cannot remember for the life of me and I have a baby boy shower cookie order for next week and this is the theme I am running with...lol
Frogs and snails and puppy dogs tails......
girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice.
I've heard "Snips and snails and puppy dog tails" but I don't know what a snip is, so "frogs" might work better.
Thank you both I called my sister after posting this and she also said "snips and snails..." Not too sure about what a snip is so I think I will go with Frogs...lol. And gee, I happen to have a frog AND a snail cookie cutter! Now what to do about the puppy dog tails...lol
Hmm, maybe you can do a little puppy hiding his head under a blanket, so only his little butt and tail are showing!
Oh and I searched snips too...according to one site, the phrase should read "snips of snails" meaning little bits of snails...if that helps any!
I know you are doing cookies, but SusieHazCakes has a cake with that theme. Sorry I can't get the link to post (computer is being a major PITA) but maybe you could get some ideas from that. HTH
This might help...possibly....this also is a cake picture, but maybe some ideas???
SARSI I LIKE THAT SITE THANKS FOR POSTING.
Yeah, its amazing!!! I love it too..hence why I saved it to my bookmarks!! LOL... It was my first motivation to try chocolate transfers...
puppy dog tails...for that you could just do the whole dog or i liked the idea of having a puppy butt up in the air...cute!
i grew up hearing and saying "sticks and snails and puppy dog tails"
i checked it online, what is a "snip"?
I had a cake for a baby shower cake for a friend having a little boy and had this very same question at the time...so the answer is "Snips of snails and puppy dog tails" And I read about it's history...it is actually pieces of snails...but I ended up doing snakes and snails and puppy dog tails on my cake...I did not ever get a picute of the cake though (which I regret) But I used cute snakes, snails and a puppy and puppy digging in the dirt for the tail part... I made them all out of fondant...I hope this helps...it is fun!
it looks like t he original wording was snips of snails, meaning little bits of snails. i'm not sure i'd want that on a cake or cookies.....
Ewww...pieces of snails??? lol ...
I think the cute frogs and cute snails and cute puppy bottoms (cause he's digging or hiding in something) idea works for me. I have a hound dog cutter. I can add the little tail on and maybe attach a blue bow to it to reference the rhyme.
