VERNON - Students at Rockville High School are gearing up to participate in the Second Annual Cupcake Wars to be held in April. Each student is paired with a faculty member, either a teacher, a paraprofessional, and in one case, the school resource officer. Teams will compete on April 11 to see which five pairs will advance to round two. On April 25, the finalists will each make 100 cupcakes and display them at the Cupcake Extravaganza held that evening. Those cupcakes, along with several hundred more, will be available for purchase to benefit the food pantry at Hockanum Valley Community Council. Local celebrity judges will be on hand to judge the cupcakes and the entire community is invited to see and taste the cupcakes and enjoy the various displays. Tickets are $10 and entitles the recipient to choose among four gourmet and novelty cupcakes. Tickets are available at Rockville High School; call 860-870-6050 and HVCC at 860-872-7727.
