What is the basis for that statement?
From everything I've seen, learned, and experienced, cakes, whether regular or cup style, cook far more consistently and with less problems in a deck oven.
If, perchance, you're basing your decision on what you've seen on television, you're being misguided, IMHO. Convection ovens sure look pretty on TV, especially when compared to a production deck oven, but they are complicated, have unnecessary features for baking, i.e the circulation fan which causes more problems than it solves, and the doors, controls, racks are subject to breakdowns far more frequently than deck ovens.
Besides, you can probably buy twice to three times the capacity for half the dollars
