I am trying to make a tier cake for 30 people. Should I use 9", 6" and 4" or 12", 9" and 6"? They will be 3 layers each. Thanks in advance.

The sizes you suggested will yield far more cake than you need. This chart from Wilton will help you decide. Good luck!

6x5x4

or 

7x5x3

when a client would order this size i would explain that this will be a petite cake

Yes, please use the chart.  A 6/9/12 yields 100 servings.  If you make that size cake, be sure to charge for 100 servings.

Thanks everyone for your inputs. I'm going with 9 and 6. Cake will be ready on Saturday. Will post pictures.

nothing wrong necessarily with making a bigger cake but you are making a cake for 45 which is half again as much as you wanted -- 9x6 is a pretty cake --

can't wait for pictures
