Cupcake Happiness

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th. We are dog sitting and 4 out of the 6 are nervous Nellies when it comes to loud noises. Last night we were surprised at how well everyone did with the fireworks and firecrackers. Sure, there was lots of panting and some pacing, but overall no panic attacks. Thankfully everything died down in the neighborhood around midnight so all of us could get some sleep.

Today was a perfect day, 70's with little humidity....aaaahhhhhhhhhh...just perfect.

So I decided what a great time to try out some baking with our new convection oven! We finally got rid of our 70's yellow, only two burner's worked, maybe have the right temp, oven for a new sleek black convection, two oven, oven. Unfortunately, it has been way to hot or the humidity was awful to really bake anything. Until today.

Simple Chocolate cupcakes from VCTOTW. They came out perfect! Light, fluffy, perfect. I heart my new oven.

cute cupcakes, but did you have to ditch what sounds like the grooviest oven ever? must all burners work. can't we all just get along?

ooooh, convection oven! I wish I could bake in one of those babies! Is it much quicker than conventional ovens?
