Cupcake Circus contains levels 171 to 185. This episode starts off easy, with all of the 170s being easy, but the end of this episode brings a cluster of some very hard levels. Levels 180, 181, 182 and 184 can all be considered hard, with 181 being extremely hard. In addition, level 183 was difficult before they got nerfed. These five levels were known as Hell's Cluster.

This episode contains the much hated level 181 which is possibly one of the hardest ingredients levels, due to the icing, and level 182 is also considered one of the hardest timed levels of the whole game. The average difficulty of this episode is medium.

There are 5 jelly levels Jelly, 4 ingredients levels Ingredient drop, 4 candy order levels Objective and 2 time levels Timed. Check out the gallery/directory below for links to specific levels within this episode!
