I can't understand what's going on. I used snap to face with project individual elements, and I used proportional editing to stretch the vertices; but it doesn't work. Here are screen grabs showing my issue. look in edit mode

same side in object mode

as you can see in object mode the view is awful and horrible. I managed to fix that in sculpting where I was able to stretch the icing but that's not what I saw in the tutorial. Can anyone explain to me what's the problem? How can I fix it?

Snapping is working, but you don't have enough geometry for the icing to completely conform to the donut. So when you snap one of the lower vertices to the face of the donut, the icing has to "dive into" the donut to reach the face.

I suspect you are able to "stretch" the icing in sculpting mode either because you don't have snapping on there or because you have one of the sculpting modes that is adding geometry.

You can accomplish the same thing in editing mode simply by turning snapping off temporarily and pulling the vertex away from the donut.
