There are 15 three-layered icing squares in a T-shape on this board. They keep the candies trapped in the top of the board, thus not letting the whole board be filled with candies. You need to open up the board and let more candies in because it gives you a better chance to make special candies. Clear the icing by making horizontal matches adjacent to the top row so you can hit more than one icing at a time. Once you break through the top row, candies can fall to the bottom of the board.
In order to beat this level, you need to make 10 striped candies. This is not too difficult of a task because you have 35 moves to fulfil your quota. When you have the options to make a striped or wrapped, go with the striped option, obviously (unless you have no choice). There are also 4 striped candies trapped in marmalade.
If Odus falls off the moon scale, the game is over. You may need to spend a move to tip him away from the danger zone. Try using special candies that are a different colour than those that will push Odus over. That will help keep him safe. Once the moon scale fills up completely, moon struck will activate, and it will take off two colours from the board completely.
