So, I have a request for a 3 tiered square cake that feeds 225. Is there a way to get these servings, while keeping the top tier? Or do I need to go 4 tiers, so she can keep the traditional top one?

So you need 225 servings in just 2 tiers? According to the Wilton Serving Chart, that means your 2 tiers have to be 16/14 (serves 128 + 98 = 226) or 18/12 (serves 162 + 72 = 234). I think either of these will look out of proportion.

If it were me, I'd recommend 16/12/8/6 ... serves 128/72/32 = 232 servings, not counting the top tier.

98% of my brides are excited when I can give them a taller cake than what they thought.

Thank you, thank you, Indydebi! That's pretty much what I was thinking! It would be weird looking with the HUGE tiers!
