100% Edible Cookie Fidget Spinner - IT SPINS!!!!!!!!

Yes - it is a 100% EDIBLE, 100% COOKIE FIDGET SPINNER THAT REALLY SPINS!!!!! 

Watch the video to see it in action!

COOKIES YOU'LL NEED:  (1) Fidget Spinner Shape, (2) Circles (you can use the cut outs from the middle of fidget.  (1) Smaller Circle, but slightly thicker than the fidget cookie
 
**The first time I made these I custom cut the dough with a knife, but this round my husband shaped a 4" metal cutter into the fidget shape.  (Be careful, cutters are very sharp and can cut skin easily)  My dough expands a little when baked so the circles all expand a little bit.  If you have a dough recipe that expands too much, your fidget shape will likely not hold up.  If you have a dough recipe that does not expand at all, you'll need to make sure your circle cookies are slightly larger than the circle opening in the fidget base.  My cookies are usually pretty soft, but I baked these slightly longer to ensure they were sturdy enough.

I did not cut small circles in arms of fidget.  I felt that the structure would hold up better when spinning if it was solid.  To add dimension, I marked off my circles with a piping tip and painted them with black food coloring prior to icing.

 GLUE THE SMALL CIRCLES TO ONE OF THE LARGER CIRCLES.  Allow time to dry fully.
DECORATE your fidget base and the other half of the small circles.  Anything goes here!  Decorate in your favorite colors and designs.  Allow time to dry fully.
 ASSEMBLE:  Place the large and small circles under and through the fidget opening.  Add royal icing only on small circle and glue top on fidget.  You do not want the icing to touch the sides of the fidget or it will NOT spin.  (See the video above for more detail on this step)
