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 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.
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).
