Cupcake Controversy

I don’t generally like to post pics of my screw-ups, but in the spirit of full disclosure I will admit that sometimes I do.

“It doesn’t even look like a cupcake!”
“The bottom part is OK, but the frosting is all wrong!!”

Apparently, my major blunder was not having the frosting go in horizontal swirls. Having never actually frosted a cupcake myself, I guess I should have asked someone.
It looks more like a muffin in a cupcake cup, and less like this:

Back to the drawing board.
