During the first stage you should detonate the Jelly Cakes as quickly as you can. You can remove a slice off of both Jelly Cakes by matching candies in the area highlighted in red (image below). Matching candies at the highlighted location is a quick way to detonate both Jelly Cakes.
Before you detonate the Jelly Cakes try to free the horizontal Striped candies highlighted in blue (image below). If you free them before you detonate the Jelly Cakes there is a greater chance of you clearing the Honey quicker because you will activate the Striped candies on the correct rows. If you free them after the Jelly Cakes are gone there is a chance of them moving to the bottom row, rendering them nearly useless.
During the second stage you first have to clear the Cupcakes and break the Licorice Link. The quicker you clear them the sooner you’ll be able to match candies adjacent to Honey on the left side of the playing field. As for the trapped Color Bomb candy on the left side of the playing field. Combine it with one of the Striped candies adjacent to it. Activating it on its own would be a waste of a great combination.
The dispensers will dispense Striped candies and Jelly Fishes quite often. Try to combine Striped candies with Jelly Fishes to make the most of them. Combing the two special candies will also help you clear the Honey at the top and bottom of the playing field.
