  • Ingredients spawn at 23 and 11 moves left, unless an ingredient is brought down first.   
  • The thick icing can get in the way, as there is a lot of it and they take 3/4 hits to break. 
  • The candy bombs can be a problem if they aren't taken care of quickly, despite their fairly long counters at 22 moves. 
  • The two cake bombs can assist in clearing all the icing.
  • Four colors makes it easier to create special candies and trigger cascades, but this is weakened by the second point.


  • Remove the cake bombs as soon as possible, and then break your way through the icing to let the ingredients reach the exits.


  • This level looks similar to its Candy Crush Saga counterpart.
  • This is the 35th Ingredients level, and there are also 35 moves available.
