Cupcakes with a bump..

Im not very good at baking, but I was asked by a friend to make cupcakes for her wedding this summer, and had to say yes - and I found out it was pretty fun!

But I got one problem, because my cupcakes get this bump in the top. Doesnt look pretty and makes the icing hard!
What do I do wrong?

And I got a tip from my local store to just cut the top of the cupcake to make it flat, but that is hard when the cupcakes isnt filling the hole cupcake case.

Huh? I wonder if they got too hot too quick or something? Will love to hear what others think.

It might be a curvature that every cake has. Can you make a photo, or something? :)

Here is pictures of two cupcakes.
One with the bump, and one that I think is perfect, do you agree? (Or should it be even more flat?)

Oh, that's a bump :) The other one looks nice ;)

What is the recipe? I see that there is something inside the cupcake?

No baker, I, but am wondering if the liners need a tad more batter?

Just a thought. Cut off the bump, eat it and cover the cupcake with frosting! ;)

To me, it looks like the top of the cupcake sets before the bottom does and then the liquid bottom leaks to the top through a crack. Maybe put it on a lower shelf in the oven?
