Candy Crush Saga Level 2042 tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2042 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Yet another luck level, although maybe not quite so luck based as the previous level.
You need to work your way into the bottom part of the board to set off the UFO's if you are to have any chance of passing level 2042.
You don't need the UFO's for the wraps they provide, although they are helpful, you need them to clear the cream blockers. You will have little chance of clearing the blockers using normal combos so the UFO's are a vital tool.
Start by clearing the blockers along the top and releasing the lucky candies, then match these as often as possible. The lucky candies will give wraps often enough for you to switch them together and create cascades. 
Switch wraps together near the top left if you get the chance as these will drop into the bottom and with luck they may set off the UFO's. This will give you most, if not all, the blockers you need so you will just have to continue switching the lucky candies for any remaining wraps.
If you are lucky you can complete this in a few goes, but if (like me) you don't have much luck with the candies it can take a lot of lives! I don't think it is worth using boosters from the start as so much relies on luck and you will waste a lot of boosters without much effect.
Keep trying and eventually you will do it. Just as a reference  it took me 46 goes to do the following video.

Thank you for mentioning the 46 tries! I don't know if it took me that many, but at least I didn't feel like a complete idiot as I failed again and again and again.

Re: Boosters on this level. Here's a hint if you are having lots of trouble. If you start out well (have a number of cascades with packages in the first half of moves, and get into the cream but not all the way to the UFOs), use one lollipop hammer on one of the UFOs as it will surely trigger all the UFOs and This will (as stated above), get you most of the cream and set you up to likely pass the level. It takes some faith (I hate using a hammer if I'm not 100% sure it will be the key to passing the level), but if you're going to do it this way, this IS the level to do it. :)
