Check out these cute Toy Story cupcakes - the alien and the pig. the alien uses three white meltable candies, with a dot of frosting on top. Then take some fruit gels and cut them into interesting shapes.
The pig cupcake uses mini chocolate chips on top of the frosting. To make the snout, cut a minicupcake in half, and use the flat half. Use those same fruit gels for the ears.
