The foam at the beginning of the second screen can be cleared with some easy egg shots that act very consistently. The first egg shot is a neutral that's fired as soon as Yoshi comes out of the pipe. The second shot is a neutral that's fired immediately after Yoshi runs off the foam he just shot through. The third shot needs to be angled straight ahead but will generally carve out the pattern you see in the following GIF. The fourth shot is a neutral that is fired as Yoshi crosses the second-to-last patch of foam that remains from what he just shot.
