Mother’s Day with Mignonne Gavigan, Founder of Mignonne Gavigan

Caroline’s Cakes was founded by and named after my mom, Caroline. Having her as a mother, mentor, and role model was an invaluable experience for which I am so grateful and some of my fondest memories were spent with Caroline. 
With this sentiment in mind, and in honor of Mother’s Day, we’ve tapped some of our most inspiring friends and colleagues to share their favorite memories, traditions, and occasions with their moms. 
Read below, and celebrate these influential women alongside us. 
Mignonne Gavigan “Maggie” 
What is one of your favorite traditions or memories with your mother?
Birdwatching! My mom is where my creativity stems from, and her mother was very creative as well. She used to take apart pocket watches and build pendants for necklaces, and my mom has this beautiful handwriting that should be made into a font. Most recently, having lived in New York for decades, and coming back to Charlotte, and being able to spend time with her and nature, is a wonderful tradition. 
What is something your mother always said? or What is something you are always saying to your children? 
Sky’s the limit 
What is a tradition you are excited to carry on or one you're excited to create for your little one? 
My grandma, my mom and I used to make these outrageously delicate, detailed clothespin doll ornaments for our Christmas trees, and Fields and I began that tradition this year. 
If I turn on ____ song it immediately makes my mom want to kick up her heels. Any Linda Ronstadt 
We have to ask... what Caroline's Cake flavor would you love to celebrate Mother's Day with?
