Marty, we make this cake all the time, the topping is not supposed to be thick at all, it's that way so the cake can absorb it, so it seems like you did good. What you see on the recipe photo is depending on how much sugar you add and after it cools/dries out.

Yes, should be on the smaller side, an example would be what you get on a can of mixed fruit.
