Peach's Birthday Cake
Peach's Birthday Cake is Princess Peach's board in Mario Party. The players compete on a large two-layered cake. It is made by the princess herself according to Toad, as well as the ribbon on the side of the cake in the original game. At the end of the game, the winner's Stars form into a large Star causing the cake to light up. The winner as well as the players in second and third stand on the cake. The losing player is seen getting attacked by a Piranha Plant. This board returns in Mario Party Superstars. In both games, this board is the only one not to have a Boo anywhere, though in Mario Party, it is possible to get one with an Event Block.
This board has a lot of Happening Spaces on the exterior floor of the main cake. However, Blue Spaces still appear on that floor and are predominant in other areas. The Star Space is also stationary, atop the cake in the center of the board, and the six playable characters from the original Mario Party are made out of fondant, with five being on top of the cake while one of Peach is in the bowl of colorful sweets (presumably Jordan almonds). The first layer of the cake also had light and dark brown cookie like objects embedded into it.
The cake is double layered, with the player going onto the second layer via a "bridge". In addition, aside from the cake itself, there is also a partially bitten hot-fudge whipped sundae nearby that houses Bowser where he provides his Bowser Cake that is inedible. This area can only be accessed if the player gets a flower depicting Bowser's face on it in the flower lottery. It was connected by a choco stick.
During the game's ending, aside from the cake having candles, the hot fudge whipped sundae is depicted as whole.
In Mario Party Superstars, Bowser's cake and the flower event have been moved over to the later part of the board, specifically the part where players leave the Star's area. This changes how Bowser's cake functions; while it was originally a detour in the way of getting to the Star Space in Mario Party, it is now a quicker, yet more dangerous, loop to get back to the Star Space in Mario Party Superstars. Players also now traverse this area counter-clockwise instead of clockwise. In addition, the cake itself and the sundae are given slight redesigns. Aside from the change in location for Goomba's lottery and the newly added Item Shop, the cake now has white-frosted Vienna Finger-esque cookies surrounding the first layer, there is more whipped cream across the cake, with some being modeled after the turrets of Peach's Castle. The "Happy Birthday" message is also absent. The "bridge" is now replaced with pink and vanilla cookie sandwiches and is composed of two separate entrances and exits. The sundae is now whole, and has additional ingredients of various cookie types, with Bowser himself occupying a green and vanilla cookie sandwich. The choco sticks are now replaced with sugar wafer cookies (presumably strawberry flavored due to their being pink), and the players start on a stack of plates and have to cross over to the main cake via a strawberry sugar wafer cookie instead of starting on the first layer with a conveniently decorated patch. The fondant figurines now appear to be made of plastic. Peach's figure, along with the plate of sweets, is absent from this version of the board. The top layer is now covered in strawberry marmalade, and features a white chocolate crown at the very center. This is the only board that does not have an Item Space (and, by extension, Item minigames).
The following tables show how many spaces there are on the board, and how many there are of a certain type.
