Most places serve the cake to the table with no explanation.  I’ve been to a wedding that was kind of a buffet.  The servers stood with the cake and asked what flavor you wanted.

We’re going to have our cake — three different flavors — cut and served "cocktail hour style," with waiters carrying trays of each option through the reception space.

Is the dinner service buffet or plated?  If the latter, then what I’ve seen is the wait staff comes around with several flavors on a tray (as bruschetta said) and just aks which you prefer.  Otherwise I’d say set up a table and put signs.  Keep in mind that a sliced cake is a lot of pieces, so it will probably need it’s own table (can’t just stick them onto the sweet table).  Or someone manning a station.  But they tell me that the cake gets completely dismantled while slicing, so even though the pieces look fine the cake looks like amess.  You may not want that sitting out.
