Cupcakes :: Princess Parfait


"Cupcakes hide inside 'til it's time to surprise!"

Cupcakes were produced by Tonka in 1990 then by Kenner from 1991-92. They were a series of scented dolls with plastic skirts which when turned inside out transformed into edible goodies with their hats becoming the icing. Along with the dolls there were several playsets and accessories produced too.
Cupcakes had a small revival in 1998 when Fun Source re-issued a few of the dolls. They were produced by Radica in 2005, Estrela in 2012-15 and Emco in 2015.

They were sold in the US, UK and other parts of Europe and I currently know of one name variation:

  • UK & US: Cupcakes
  • Italy: Le Sorpresine (Surprises)

Princess Parfait

"These dazzling princesses are the most exquisite dolls in Cupcakeland, with beautiful crowns and special royal accessories."

Princess Parfait doll's came in a variety of glamorous dresses. When turned inside out they transformed into Sundae goblets rather than cupcakes. They each had a crown, earrings and necklace. Bonnie Bride and Priscilla Prom came with bouquets while Fairy Belle came with a wand and Rebecca Royal a staff.

Two of these dolls were sold with different names, presumably for the UK market. A black version was made of at least one of these dolls but I don't know if the other three were too. They were produced in 1992-93.
