what about doing a square cake and doing one side for each of the birthday people and a general birthday theme (hat, candles, balloons whatever) for the topper. That way even though it's one cake everyone's interest would be included.

How about four little individual cakes? I get orders all the time for two/three/etc. different designs on one cake and in my experience, they always end up looking crowded and tacky.

Or you could go with cupcakes. I lkinda like the idea of four small cakes (maybe 6" rounds?) and then you could just do cupcakes/sheet cake to fill in for the other servings if you need any more.

How many people are we talking here?

How about one cake with heart shaped cookies..one for each person. I did this for a customer who wanted one cake for three different birthdays,

I would just go for a cake that has nothing to do with them.

I saw somewhere a tiered cake that had a different name on each tier and I really liked that idea. You could either do one design that encompasses them all or each tier could be iced slightly differently to reflect each person. I've also seen cakes that are one big square cake then divided into four smaller squares of varying heights. Each square would be devoted to one person. I wish I could think what they were called or how to describe it better. If you went that way you could do a little gumpaste topper to reflect each person if you wanted to jazz it up on their square.

Here we go, just found a link to that square one: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1269253

Not that my idea was really very cleaver or wonderful, this was my way to remedy family member's birthdays honored on one cake:
