9th Annual Cupcake Battle!

by Tony on February 18, 2019

The 9th Annual Cupcake Battle was a huge success! The Annual benefit for Mt. Washington Valley Promotions sold out yesterday as hungry attendees tried an assortment of miniature cupcakes and determined which they liked best. There were eighteen total bakers competing in four separate categories: Spencer Kelly was best child baker. Hannah Thelemarck won best Teen Baker. Bette Muise took the award for best home baker, and Julie Tavares of Batter Up became a three time champion when she was awarded the win for the Professional baker category. Mt. Washington Valley Promotions Executive Director Lisa Dufault noted that it was the largest number of professional competitors in the event’s history. She says the event took in roughly $3,000, which is a little over $2,400 for the non-profit after the prize money is deducted. Event organizers are already looking forward to next year with the hopes that it will be as big.

Rep. Pappas Criticizes Wayfair Decision

by Tony on February 15, 2019

US Representative Chris Pappas took to the floor of the House of Representatives to criticize the Wayfair Decision yesterday. The Supreme Court decision allows States to tax sales to people within their States, even if the business selling the product is located elsewhere. Representative Pappas cites his visit to the Mt. Washington Valley and specifically White Mountain Puzzlers and Lupine Pet in his criticism. Pappas says the decision threatens to shut down the internet sales of many New Hampshire businesses because they are unprepared to take on the sales tax burden of other States across the country.
