Fidget Spinner Cookies-How to Make with a Giveaway
A month ago I didn’t know what a fidget spinner was and now here I am making fidget spinner cookies. I’d love to have a galaxy themed birthday party just so I can make a ton of them for little kiddos that like to fidget. Since I can’t do that. I’m going to giveaway a few Fidget Spinner Cookie Cutters so maybe in our cookie world, we can get a few fidgety cookie smiles!
Are you ready for a GIVEAWAY? I have three Fidget Spinner Cookie Cutters I’m ready to giveaway just because I love ya!
Supplies for Fidget Spinner Cookies:
(contains affiliate links)
Sugar Cookie Recipe
Royal Icing Recipe
Royal Icing Colors:
Food Gel Colors of your choice
Fidget Spinner Cookie Cutter
Sweet Sugarbelle Donut Cookie Cutter or a circle cutter to make the center of the fidget spinner
Small Circle Cookie Cutter
Corn Starch or Powdered Sugar so the fondant doesn’t stick as you roll and cut it out.
Corn Syrup and Vodka to make the fondant shine
Paintbrush to brush water on the back of the fondant
Paintbrush to paint on the Corn Syrup and Vodka mixture to the fondant to make it shine
Use any airbrush system you have but these are the two I prefer:
Cookie Countess Airbrush System
Or the Artfully Designed Creations Airbrush System
Airbrush Colors that compliment your Fidget Spinner Cookie Colors-I used purple, blue and black on this set.
Mini Heat Gun
Vodka to mix the Dust
Brush to Splatter the Dust on the cookies-A new toothbrush works great for this step
TMP Super Gold Dust
TMP Super Silver Super Dusts
The TMP Super Dusts Sample Pack costs less and you get the Super Rose Gold
Don’t panic! I know this looks like a lot of supplies because I wanted to list everything I used. I bet you already have most of these items on hand so don’t freak out and think you can’t make these. They are simple and the fondant (you can buy it pre-colored), airbrushing, and the TMP Super Dusts and the perfect finishing touches to make these cookies look like real fidget spinners. Let’s get started!
Sharon at Truly Mad Plastics has a wonderful Fidget Spinner Cookie Cutter that’s the perfect size for these cookies. Leave a comment below this post to enter for a chance to win one of three fidget cookie cutters.
- I’m a sucker for reality these days so I really needed to add a few holes to the cutter to make it look more like a real fidget spinner. I had a small cookie cutter that worked so you probably need to look through all those small circle cutters you have to find the right size. Don’t worry. It’s a cookie so it doesn’t have to be exact.
- See Sweet Sugarbelle’s Donut Cookie Cutter in the first picture? Well, when I shared the How to Make Awesome Pineapple Cookies the other day, I told you to hold on the center part of the cookie you cut out so you could use them for these cookies. That circle is a perfect size, but you may already have a circle that would make a great center for the spinner. As I said, don’t stress and use what you have on hand.
- Cut the Fidget Spinner Cookies and leave the cutter on the cut dough. Then use the small cookie cutter to cut the circles. When you leave the fidget spinner cookie cutter on the raw dough, the cookie won’t lose it’s shaping when you cut the circles.
- Use the donut cutter to cut out the circle you’ll use in the center.
Royal Icing for Dipping the Cookies:
Dipping cookies isn’t the greatest way to get a nice smooth flat surface on a cookie. This part stressed me out a little until I told myself to get over it! Move on! It’s a cookie and if the top isn’t perfectly smooth and flat who cares. It’s a cookie! Once I had a little pep talk with myself it magically became fun. Watching how the icing made the different designs and patterns on the cookies was mesmerizing. I think we all need to learn to “let go” a little more so we have fun instead of worrying about every little thing. (Okay, I’m talking to myself here. It’s me. It’s not you. I promise!)
Anyway, making the icing on the thinner side helped make the dipping process easy. Just think your base color of royal icing and add some food gel color to the top and mix it until you have a nice swirl. You can see how in the video below.
- Mix the food gel colors on the icing and start dipping the cookies.
- Remove the excess from the sides. It’s that easy and boy oh boy it’s fun!
- As you dip the cookies you may need to stir the icing in the bowl or add another bit of food gel color.
- You can always dip the spoon deeper into the bowl of royal icing so you can pull the white color back to the top. Just be careful and don’t over mix or you will get a muddy color.
- Once the cookies are dipped, add the circle to the fidget spinner cookies and let them dry for about an hour.
- Then airbrush all the edges (cookie and icing) with your favorite airbrush colors. Don’t forget to airbrush the center of the cut out circles.
Are you ready for the really fun part? It’s a bit messy and it’s awesome!
Sharon at TMP has some Super Dust that I’m totally loving. They mix well with vodka and make the perfect shimmering silver and gold. There aren’t any picture of me splattering the gold dust, but you do it the same as the silver dust.
- Pour a little Silver Super Dust into a bowl and add a little vodka.
- Dip the end of a paintbrush or a new toothbrush into the mixture.
- Run your finger across the end of the brush to spatter the shiny silver and gold onto the cookies. Instant galaxy cookies!
- Let the cookies dry completely before you move on to the next step.
- Roll out the black fondant.
- Use the Sugarbelle Donut cookie cutter and the small cookie cutter to make fondant rings to place around the holes in the fidget spinner cookies.
- Once they are cut out, paint a little water on the back and add them to the cookies.
- Once the fondant is on the cookies, you can move them around a little until you get them in the right place.
- Next, mix 1/2 teaspoon of vodka and corn syrup. Paint it on the black fondant to make it shine.
- Let the cookies dry completely.
Fidget Spinner Cookies Video:
If you like the music on this video you can find it at Pond5 Little Happy Christmas.
I did a Google search before I made these cookies and didn’t see any fidget spinner cookies. Let me just say a few weeks have changed everything. These things are all over the web now! It goes to show great minds think alike!
These cookies don’t spin like a real fidget spinner, but if you want to make them spin, check out Haniela’s Youtube Video and she’ll show you how to spin them. Just be careful if you use something that’s isn’t edible to make them spin. You don’t want anyone to eat the stick.
If you like the planets you can follow the Galaxy Cookie Tutorial by Blyss Cookies and you can find the Blyss Galaxy Stencil at Artfully Designed Creations.

I’m fairly new to these little spinners – they seem to have passed me by here in Spain. My grandson in the UK introduced me to them. I actually bought one for myself as I found it difficult to switch off after studying hard over the last year.
I would love the opportunity to make these for my community here in Spain and also for my UK family and friends.
How cute are these?!?! I have 3 boys who have been begging me to make fidget spinner cookies for the last week since a video went viral about them. I’ve been dragging my feet because I’m not a fan of making own template for cookies. This cutter would be perfect!

These are so cute. My kids and husband have started collecting fidget spinners!
My wife has a large collection of cookie cutters. I call it a collection, because she uses a handful of them, and the rest sit in a drawer. These would be a great addition, though I think they would get a fair amount of use right now!!!
Wow; so many different techniques for one cookie! They look like so much fun to make. I had never heard of these until I saw your post this morning and then I saw something about fidget spinners while I was driving this afternoon. Funny how that happens. BTW, love the plant cookies, too.
Love adding to my collection.

My grandson wants these for his birthday July 1. He’ll be 10. The video he sent me showed them cutting the cookies out by hand. I would love to have a cookie cutter instead!
Great idea for kids.
my son and I would have so much fun making these cookies
Awesome. Gotta make some for my kiddos.
I have seen kids with them, and they all seem to enjoy them.. I Have even see The president’s son with one! It would be so nice to give one to my grandson..
My grand kids would love these. We make cookies about once a month when they stay over.
Can I just tell you how amazing this is! (Unfortunately) my boyfriend loves these things and I would love to make him some fidget cookies for our anniversary! Haha
So very cute! I would be the best Nana ever if I had this! Thank you!
This is so funny that I am seeing this…I recently got a fidget spinner that looks just like the cookies that you made…just not glittery-looking.
The fidget spinner cookie cutters from Truly Mad Plastics are so creative! I can’t wait to give the decorating ideas a try. They look so realistic!
These are awesome the kids at my school would go nuts for these..
This looks like so much fun! My fiancés 6 year old daughter would love this. Thank you!
My 2 great nieces would absolutely LOVE these!
Did you say Vodka? On cookies?! Interesting! I’m not a great baker, but I’d definitely try this. I am impressed with how realistic they turned out. My kid is just as excited about fidget spinners as it seems the rest of the world is. She would just delight in making tons of these cookies to decorate!
My grandchildren would absolutely love to have some cool fidget spinner cookies.
I have grandchildren that definitely need amazing fidget spinner cookies.
My nieces and nephews want and need some marvelous fidget spinner cookies.
Some wonderful fidget spinner cookies would be just great for my grandchildren.
