Peach battling on Tart Top

Tart Top is a battle course in Mario Kart DS. It is a large circular pastry covered by many confections like green and red heart-shaped jellies, cream puffs and berries. The only Item Boxes are located high up in the air, accessible only when racers use the Dash Panel covering completely the cream mountain in the center. Hitting any one of the creme puffs throughout the course may cause icing to splat on the player's screen, much like the Blooper item, though not nearly as much or as long.


  • If the player drives up the center ramp and hops just when the back of the kart touches the edge of the Dash Panel, the player will gain more height. This trick can be done with various other Dash Panels in the game.
  • Similar to the bumpers in the course Waluigi Pinball, the berries and cream puffs can be used to dodge incoming items such as Red Shells.
