I just booked a cake to serve 220 people. They are looking at a 4 tier cake. The top tier does not count toward servings. I was thinking 14, 12, 10 and 8" square tiers. What are some other suggestions?

Then I booked another cake for 120 servings. They also want a square cake with 4 tiers - top not being served. I was thinking on this one to do 12, 9, 7 and 5" tiers. Any other ideas?

I'm just looking for other possibilities to provide the clients as to size of tiers.

Thanks a bunch.

I recommend the Wilton chart for figuring servings.
You don't say what shape the tiers will be. It does make a difference.
Rounds give these servings:
8 = 30
9 = 32-35
10 = 48
12 = 68
14 = 92

If you need a different shape look up the info on
