I can answer these two.

Toad’s trophy celebration in Mario Tennis suggests they reproduce through spores. Or are they simply Super Mushrooms?

In Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, Princess Peach herself (with Mario and Luigi’s help) baked Bowser a cake at the end as a thank you present.

Random Mario Character Trivia

Did you know there is something very dark and mysterious about Luigi? In Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time Luigi is denied entrance by the Star Gate because of “a dark secret” in his past. Luigi bizarre Final Smash in Super Smash Bros Brawl called the Negative Zone is “a reflection of the dark side he embraced in his brother’s shadow.” Super Paper Mario reveals that Luigi is a necessary component in the destruction of all life in the multiverse.

Did you know Mario is a sore loser? He often acts before he thinks.

Did you know Wario, in addition to being the owner of a video game company and an anti-Indiana Jones style adventurer, is also a farmer? Wario’s “beloved pet” Hen is the only creature that he’s ever been shown to be nice to.

Did you know Princess Peach’s calm and sweet personality may be fake? A conversation in Paper Mario implies Princess Peach acts this way because it’s how “the Ministers taught (her)” to act. Maybe this is why Princess Peach is best friends with the openly tomboy Princess Daisy?

Did you know it has been hinted that Luigi and Princess Daisy are dating? During Daisy’s trophy celebration in Mario Power Tennis, Luigi presents her the trophy and she greets him by saying “Hi sweetie!” In Mario Kart Wii, Daisy had a statue erected depicting her and Luigi dancing.
