Ava Grace is O N E!!! .
This girl is one of the most determined one year olds I’ve ever met. She came out one year ago so strong and that has not quit (hello broken tailbone..yeah I’m still bitter). She has blown us away by how physically inclined she is and we are so proud of her. She does not have any fears which is such a blessing andd sometimes not so much a blessing. She loves people and loves to make them smile. She’s growing so much, although you might not be able to tell by her height (Asian genes coming on strong these days). This past year has been so slow and so fast for us. We’ve had a lot of challenging moments as a family but we’ve also had so many more joy filled ones. We’re so thankful this little girl was chosen to be part of our family, she is teaching us so many things and we can’t wait to learn more from her (and hopefully teach her a few things along the way 😉) 📸: @valmcclure 😘

Had so much fun celebrating Harper’s 1st Birthday! I loved the theme her mommy picked out. Harper loved the cake more!
MKP would love to capture your little one’s 1st Birthday memories! Contact me at [email protected]michellekorte.com to learn more. Can’t wait to see you in the studio!
Happy Birthday, Ryleigh Grace! Our sweet niece officially turns 1 today 🥰🎉
This girl loves The Lion King, so we made her a cute lil' lion smash cake when she came to visit Michigan early this month. Friends, there is nothing quite like watching a baby smash a cake 😆

The lows (!) and highs of owning your own business. Friday, 4:30pm, I was flagging. Some of my stock ideas didn't come to fruition and my roll up banners hadn't arrived; I was deflated.
24 hours later was another story entirely. We were non-stop with wonderful customers trying and buying our products and we had won 3rd Best Stand at the @iomfoodanddrink Festival, presented by none other than @selasigb of @britishbakeoff fame!! It is the eve of our first birthday and it has been interesting reflecting back on what has been achieved this year... the third place award has been the icing on the cake, so to speak!
The work behind the scenes has been tireless from a number of people who I'd just like to mention and say a huuuuge thank you to:
- @sandrahr40 for your mentoring and business support 🤗
- @voirreybarronphotography_iom for your amazing photos which brought my stand and products to life 📸 and also for your wisdom with all things social media!
- Victoria at Vaughan Design and Marketing for the eye-catching design of my banners, flyers and updated business cards (yet to be released 😉)
- Matt and the team at Promenade Shirts and Embroidery for our fabulous uniforms 👚
- my major suppliers who got me what I needed, even though some of it was ridiculously last minute! @laxeyflour @iomcreamery @butterfingerscakes, Finanns Eggs, Agrimark and Robinsons
- my amazing family, who kept me going and supported me throughout what has been the busiest and most tiring week yet of my caking journey 😘😘😘 they're paid in cake, of course 😂
Special thanks also to @ballakellyfarm for your amazing food which kept me going on the final push on Sunday and to @m.weirphotography, @foodieguideiom and @iomnewspapers for your promotion of my stand over the weekend.. and anyone else I've missed!! And finally, I can't finish the world's longest post without thanking my amazing customers who have supported my little venture over this past year. You're making my dreams come true and I thank each and every one of you for supporting me 🥰
