Previous blocker: Four-layered Frosting

Five-layered Frosting is a blocker in Candy Crush Saga, unofficially appearing in level 232, and officially appearing in level 276, although it can come out of a mystery candy from level 231 and magic mixer on level 1451 onward. It is currently the most layered icing blocker, and it takes 5 hits to destroy. This blocker can be incredibly difficult to clear due to the number of hits needed.


Five-layered Icing

This has been doomed to dominate us for the rest of our lives!

Five-layered frosting looks like four coloured icings stacked on top of another, packed in a silvery plastic sachet. It also looks like whipped cream topped with chocolate that is also topped with whipped cream and chocolate, making it irritating to look.

Five-layered Icing Degrader

Degradation process

Five-layered frostings are single-tile stationary blockers that require five hits to clear. The only ways to destroy them are to make a match adjacent to the blocker, special candy effects (including jelly fish), and cake bomb five times. These blockers have four degrades and can hide jelly underneath it.

Difficulty of clearing:

Degrade/Name Lead Topping Colour Difficulty
Five-layered Frosting Mahogany Very hard
Four-layered Frosting White Hard
Three-layered Frosting Mahogany Medium
Two-layered Frosting White Easy
One-layered Frosting Silver/None Very Easy


  • Due to the number of hits it takes to destroy it, this blocker is one of the most hated blockers in the game.
  • It is mistaken for a "cupcake" by some players.
  • It used to be the symbol for icing layers (required as part of new candy order levels) even in levels with no five-layered frosting, probably because it is the most layered frosting to date. However, five-layered frosting counts as five points in the frosting orders. It is uncertain if six-layered frosting will ever be released.
    • Since the switch to the HTML5 version, the symbol is now of four-layered frosting instead.
  • Level 1494 is the first level with a magic mixer that can spawn five-layered frosting.
  • This is the first type of frosting to be found in liquorice locks (officially appearing in level 2575).
