Birthday Party Ideas for Toy Story Obsessed People, Like Me! Toy Story 4 Party Ideas, Toy Story 4 Forky Cupcakes

With Toy Story 4 coming out in theaters June 21, 2019, you know the birthday party requests will be aplenty with the kiddos, and adults, too! I had the idea to make my own Forky themed cupcakes for our Toy Story 4 skit video for our YouTube channel. I also made some alien cupcakes from the OhMyDisney site, which are always fun to make. 

To create a Forky cupcake, you will need a photo of Forky for inspiration or buy a cute Forky figure. He can watch on as you make a cupcake in his likeness. 

BUNCH O BALLOONS Self- Sealing Party Kit is a party planning game changer!

To make your own Forky cupcakes, you can bake from scratch or do what I did! I baked Betty Crocker cupcakes - nothing fancy! I frosted the cupcakes with vanilla frosting, then I used buttercream icing to create Forky's popsicle legs. 

To create Forky's head: 
Use a sugar sheet to cut out the shape of Forky's head (four prong spork), and then draw in his features with food safe markers. You can use red sparkle icing for his quizzical eyebrow, or even Twizzler rope. You can also add in Twizzler rope for his arms. I will use that for my next batch!

To create Forky's signature rainbow sticker:
Simple draw a small rainbow on the sugar sheet, cut it out and stick to the buttercream icing (his left popsicle leg). 

If you really want to kick it up a notch, write "BONNIE" in green at the bottom of the cupcake. Your kiddo will be blown away. Or not! Try it and let me know what they thought! Stay tuned for my next batch as I will be tweaking it to be kid-friendly. I think the Forky head is a little too much.
