Start the level by clearing the Icing in at least one of the columns. As soon as you clear one column of Icing candies will partially fill the bottom of the playing field. You can fill the entire bottom area with candies by clearing a few columns of Icing.
Only focus on bringing down Ingredients once you’ve cleared the majority of the Icing. At this stage it’ll become much easier to make special candies and with candies of five colors on the playing field it’s not too difficult to make special candies. Make as many special candies as you can and when possible combine them to maximize their effects.
Match candies on the left side of the playing field as often as you can, preferably in the same columns as the Ingredients. Doing this will shift the largest amount of candies, hopefully start a chain reaction and create new opportunities to make special candies.
