Even though Easter is the next major holiday, it looks like FarmVille wants to celebrate all things sweet first, as it has received the Candy Castle building project this afternoon. The Candy Castle will allow you to collect Ice Cream for a future collection project, where you'll be able to spend that Ice Cream on various rewards in something called the "Giant Sundae."
There are six stages of this Candy Castle, requiring you to collect building materials with the help of friends (or purchase them with Farm Cash). For the very first stage of the Candy Castle, for instance, you'll need to collect the following:
16 Marshmallow Mortars
16 Gingerbread Sidings
16 Chocolate Bricks
The Candy Castle has a massive base, and the building will grow even larger (in terms of height) as you continue to upgrade it by collecting different parts. It's presumable that you'll be able to collect a single Ice Cream from the first few levels of the Candy Castle, while further levels will give you more than one Ice Cream each time you collect from it.
As it stands we're not sure when the Giant Sundae collection event itself will launch, or what sorts of prizes we can expect inside. We'll make sure to keep track of things and will let you know just as soon as we learn more. Keep checking back!
What do you think of the Candy Castle in FarmVille? Are you looking forward to the release of the Giant Sundae? Sound off in the comments.
