Tart Top is a battle course in Mario Kart DS. It is a large circular pastry resembling a pie covered by many confections like green and red heart-shaped jellies, cream mounds, and berries. The only Item Boxes are located high up in the air, accessible only when racers use the Dash Panel circling the cream mountain in the center. The creme mounds scattered all over the course function like the bumpers featured in Waluigi Pinball in that they bounce karts back, but with the added property of applying a unique pink icing (a recolor of the ink caused by the Blooper item) to the racer's screen. The icing can be cleared by waiting for a short period of time, gaining a burst of speed provided by the Dash Panel or using a Mushroom.

In Shine Runners, there are seven possible spawning locations for the Shine Sprites. Seven are distributed along the circular portion of the course, while another Shine Sprite can also spawn in the center where the item box ring is.


There is one mission that takes place on Tart Top:

  • Mission 5-6: The player controls Yoshi, who must collect 18 coins scattered throughout the course within 45 seconds.
