What would we do without our Mothers?


Toni Dawson and Sweet Caroline

These last two years have been all about my dad, but I certainly couldn't have done it without my mum, known by many as Sweet Caroline.

Rebranding my business in memory of my dad's name, Geraldo, and re-fitting my shop has been a real rollercoaster of emotions and throughout it all my mum has been a constant steady rock, a reassuring voice of encouragement and the voice of reason if my ideas seemed too absurd at times.

From her teenage years serving up 'Caroline's Ices' in Ayr in the 60's to 30 years of ice cream outlets on the seafront in Saltcoats, is it any wonder I chose to produce ice cream in Largs with my mother by my side sharing her vast wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm?

This Mother's Day will be all about everyone else's Mum as we'll be in the shop as usual doing our best to find the perfect gift for your Mum. Why not visit us in Largs?

Alternatively, you can buy a wide range of handmade chocolates, confectionery gifts, artisan gin and more from us online.  We're sure you'll find her something special.


No matter what, next time you're in Largs please do visit us and ask for an ice cream from Sweet Caroline. It'll make her day!

 Happy Mother's Day!
