It looks pretty darn good. Only thing I see are the slight gaps between your layers of ribbon, and maybe tighting your crease.

I think your bow looks really really great!!!
( maybe you are seeing it differently becauses its your bow - I always doubt my own bows!)

To get the shape try using two fingers on each hand looped through the loops and really pull them apart.( on hand at the top and one at the bottom) that will give you the " long" shape of the first bow.

Also what fold are you doing? The EK bow show the top of the ribbon facing up on the outside of the bow, I can't see the ends of the ribbon on the cupcake bow so I'm thinking it may be folded slightly differently?

Looks good to me, only difference I see is E&K has the surround loops and yours doesn't.

I think I know what you are talking about! I have the same issues with mine!!!! Your top loops are great, and looks like your bottom ones are a bit off! I am having the same issue! It may have something to do with your crease being uneven. KWIM???? It's hard for me to get my middle "humps" even and centered! Do you tie or sew yours? I sew mine and I can tell if I don't get the middle creases even it will make my bottom loops lopsided and I can't seem to get them to shape right! HTH!!!!

I think your bow looks great too. I use Wonder Under from WM, cut to approximately 1/2 inch and fuse the two ribbons together so the two rbbons stay together nicely without any gaps. It is so cheap too...like 90 cents a yard or something. HTH!

Use adhesive to bond the top and bottom ribbons together, also to get mine to a "perfect shape" I shape it just the way I want and then starch it to death lol, that way it will not go out of shape hth
