Welcome to Heavenly Tiers

Bespoke cakes and classes by Joanna Jarvis in Midlothian, Scotland.

Welcome to Heavenly Tiers

Are you are looking for a unique novelty cake design for your special occasion, wedding or event?

I aim to create the perfect centre piece for your celebration that tastes as good as it looks. See our cake pages for inspiration. Please note: I am not currently taking cake orders at this time. 

Have you always wanted to learn how to create your own cakes, or take your skills to the next level but don’t know where to start?

I love to teach cake decorating skills to small group classes or 1:1 at my cake studio. I can also provide demonstrations or workshops to private groups. See our class pages for information.

About the designer

My name is Joanna and I am the owner of Heavenly Tiers. I work as from my home based cake studio to design and create wonderful cakes and classes for my customers and students to enjoy.

Originally from South East England,  I moved to the Scottish Borders after University in 1997 and settled in Midlothian with my family in 2005.

My background is in community learning and development. I love to share my passion and creativity for cake decoration and sugarcraft with adults and young people.

During 2021/2022 I am embarking on teacher training to become a Home Economics teacher.

Cake journey

I volunteered to make my sisters wedding cake in 2007. Got the cake bug and progressed from there. Attending Cake Decoration and Sugarcraft classes Level 1, 2 & 3 at Edinburgh College.

Continued classes with Midlothian Council, practicing my skills by making cakes for friends and family for a few years before launching Heavenly Tiers in 2010.

In 2016, I successfully completed a Professional Diploma in Patisserie at the Edinburgh School of Food and Wine.

My husband and I converted our 1850’s former coach house and garage into a cake studio in 2019 and I now specialise in creating bespoke novelty cakes and teaching in person classes.


I have taught cake decoration classes as an adult education tutor with Midlothian Council for many years. In addition, delivered private demonstrations and classes for corporate and private groups for young people and adults at venues throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians.

I offer small group and private classes from my studio and specialise in teaching beginners classes, novelty cakes and models.

I am a trainee demonstrator for the British Sugarcraft Guild.


Member of the British Sugarcraft Guild and trainee BSG Demonstrator.
