I find it very ironic that I spend so much time trying to make flat cakes and they end up domed, and fight for domed cupcakes that end up flat?????

Try this: When you want a dome, bake at a higher temp. Conversely, when you want a flat surface, bake at a lower temp. Adjust your bake temps by approx 25 degrees
