A Couple's Cake is an item found in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The item is given to Mario after he completes the "Looking for a gal!" trouble. This item has the same properties as a Slow Shroom, but a character cannot use it on themselves. Mario can use it only on his partners and partners can use it only on Mario. According to Wonky, Couple's Cakes remind Zess T. of her late husband and she is therefore apparently reluctant in making them; this situation is almost identical to Tayce T.'s quirk over Cake, which she similarly used to win her late husband over. This item can be sold anywhere for 10 coins (30 coins in the Japanese version).

Later, it appears in Super Paper Mario, where it automatically gives the player 5,000 points when used. In both games, the Couple's Cake can also be mixed with a Poison Shroom to make a Trial Stew.
