How many cupcakes does it take to learn a new oven?

Today was the first day I baked on my new, dream oven. A Vulcan double stack convection oven. It took about 166 cupcakes for me to kinda figure out what the right temperature should be. I've never used a commercial, convection oven before. Until now, I've been baking (albeit illegally) out of my home oven--and my treats are perfect from home. At the shop with the new dream oven--not so much! It was so bad that I thought I was crazy for attempting to now have a shop. I have to relearn how to make my treats taste equally fantastic in an oven that has temperature controls and a power level--what is the power level for, anyway? I have to do this quickly--money still is not growing on any of the trees we've planted. I think I've figured out how to trick my new oven (we'll see tomorrow). Keep your fingers crossed for me...and cupcake goddesses, help a sista out.

I have read your blogs and I believe that you are following your passion and I wish you the best of luck with you new business venture (especially given the state of the economy).

It is a good thing that you can get your inspiration from you children. I believe that our children inspire us to do things that we think we can't do.

I believe that our children are our Guardian Angels.
