I work with a convection oven, which I have not had experience with before.  I have problems when baking mini cupcakes.  The cupcakes always fan off to the side....they never rise up nice and full round.  It does not make for a nice presentation.  Could someone tell me how to correct this problem.  I have tried different oven temperatures and baking on all three levels of racks.  Nothing seems to work.  Our bakery is totally gluten free also.

I have also recently bought o convection oven which I am not used to, I have read up on this problem. turn the fan down low. make sure to spin the pans, or use a piece of tin foil or another pan to block wind. but I dont think the last option is a good long term solution because i think it can damage the oven. Hope you find somthing that helps! I know the battle.

can you set your muffin pans down into cake pans that will shield the air flow? or just to test you could fashion an aluminum foil shield to attach to the pan not the oven

I bake in a convection oven and about halfway through the baking time I turn everything around so it get "blown" the other way & evens out.  Incredibly annoying, but it works. Please do come back and share if you find something else that works.  Unfortunately my oven doesn't let me control the flow of the fan.
