Hope this helps,

Go to the little dropdown arrow next to the snap tool(The magnet icon) and make sure you have these exact settings:

These settings worked fine for me.

Some more things you should keep in mind:

  1. The offset of your solidify modifier should be +1 i.e. the thickness should come towards the outside

enter image description here

  1. The icing and the donut should have uniform scale i.e it should have scale of 1 on X, Y and Z axis. If they don't have a uniform scale then you can make it uniform by going to object mode - > Press Ctrl + A and applying the scale. enter image description here

  2. You have to be in edit mode to move the vertices and change the shape of icing.

  3. Snapping has a limit, you can't drag the icing too far and expect to have no intersections between the donut and icing(In ur case it should work fine)

  • $\begingroup$ @Solfaris Did you move the frosting in edit mode from top view? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ If you do it in object mode, the entire icing object will snap to the surface based on its origin; if you do it in edit mode, the individual vertices will be snapped to the surface. $\endgroup$
