There is no difficulty in getting two and three stars as the two and three star target scores are only 2,000 and 3,000 points respectively. The ingredients are worth 30,000 points, which is more than the two and three star score requirements.
This level is the last in a streak of 12 levels that are rated none or very easy.
This used to be the first ingredients level to have more ingredients enter the board after some are collected. Therefore, this used the first ingredients level to have not all ingredients on the board at start. It is no longer true after the redesign.
After the redesign, this level looks similar to level 11. It also has the same set of target scores. But there are 2 less spaces and 2 more cherries to bring down. The cherries are also spread out.
