This is in continuation of Word Builder 1.
In a word builder you are given a word which you have to transform into a bigger word in a series of steps. With each step you can rearrange the letters and either add a new letter or swap a letter already in the word for a different one. Our objective is to get to the bigger word from the smaller word in the least number of steps.
Change BLUE to CERULEAN and, GOLD to DANDELION in a minimum number of steps.
Note: Each transition step must correspond to a valid English word. Proper nouns, acronyms, abbreviations, hyphens or spaces are not allowed.
