sprinkles I am following the Blender 3.0 Tutorial: Donut part 9/10.

I created a second mesh to practice on, but the sprinkles look kind of flattened. I don´t know why. I tweaked the Scale Settings in Instance on Points to get it right. On my first try in the back you can see that the sprinkles barely touch the icing.

    $\begingroup$ Is the donut also distorted? As in did you make a square donut? Or is the original a circle? $\endgroup$

Try applying scale on your sprinkles.

Select the sprinkle objects and press Ctrl+A > Apply Scale. If it made a change, then you'll have to tweak the scale values in the Geometry Nodes tab to get it right.

If it didn't solve the problem, it's probably because you have weight painted on the down side of the icing.
