Recipe At Bottom of Post
My Nana loved Toy Story. She had a little Cowboy Woody doll that sat in her room and now it belongs to my little boy. So I’m thinking about her a lot this week and Toy Story 4 gets ready to hit the theaters.
As most of y’all know, I love Disney and all things Disney. So with that memory and my love of Disney I had to jump in to celebrate Toy Story and it’s new character Forky!
Plus, I’ve teamed up with some other amazing bloggers to host a Disney Toy Story giveaway over on Instagram!

Who is Forky?
Forky is one of the new characters in Toy Story 4! He’s a spork that Bonnie decorates during craft time and he comes to life just like all the other toys! I can’t wait to see Toy Story 4 and learn even more about this little cutie!
For these Toy Story Forky Cupcakes I made my favorite chocolate cupcakes with a homemade chocolate frosting, topped them with a DIY Forky and some blue, red, and yellow Toy Story colored sprinkles!
What you’ll need for Toy Story Forky Cupcake Batter:
- Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder
- baking soda
- vanilla extract
- vegetable oil
- boiling water
What you’ll need for Toy Story Forky Cupcake Frosting:
- butter, melted
- cocoa powder
- powdered sugar
- vanilla extract
Toy Story Colored Sprinkles are optional but awesome! Toy Story colors are red, blue and yellow!
What you’ll need to make Forky from Toy Story:
- white plastic sporks ( or white plastic soup spoons cut to look like sporks)
- red pipe cleaners
- medium googly eyes
- small googly eyes
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- blue marker
How to make Forky from Toy Story:
Cut a 1 – 1 1/2 inch piece of red pipe cleaner for the eyebrow.
Then wrap the rest of the red pipe cleaner twice around the neck/waist of the spork. Just wrap it enough to hold it on there.
Then bend the ends to make Forky’s hands. Don’t worry, those little hands don’t need to be perfect.
Hot glue Forky’s eyes on. The bigger googly eye goes on the left and the small googly eye goes on the right.
Hot glue the small piece of red pipe cleaner above Forky’s eyes to make his eyebrow.
Use a blue marker to draw Forky’s mouth on.
Forky is now ready to decorate some cupcakes!
Decorate the Toy Story Forky Cupcakes:
Now it’s time to decorate the cupcakes!
Just pipe the chocolate frosting onto the cupcakes and stick Forky right in the middle.
Top with Toy Story colored sprinkles (red, yellow and blue) and you’re all done!
Cute Toy Story Forky cupcakes to celebrate the new Toy Story movie and perfect for any Toy Story Birthday Party!
