You can ask your caterer to do this, they often charge an extra fee for it though.  You could also ask your bakery to pre slice the cakes, or do it yourself ahead of time.  If you do it yourself, try this- start with a really cold cake, close to frozen.  Heat some water on stove.  Take your knife, dip in water, wipe with a rag and make the cut while the knife is hot.  Wipe the knife between each cut.  This will leave the cakes looking nice and all the guests will have to do is put the slice they want on a plate.

Do it yourself or let your guests do it. If you do it yourself, it’s easier for your guests and neater. If your guests do it, then they get the amounts they want. Either way, I think it will work out fine. 

I love the idea.

We’re doing a dessert bar and rather than a bunch of small cakes, we are having small desserts (e.g. shotglass desserts, cake pops, mini, bite-size cheesecake, etc.). The issue I find with buffet desserts is that everyone wants “just a taste” so a full size of a cake may be too much. Instead of round cakes, maybe you can do a small sheet cake and have the caterer cut it into small squares? That seems to be what buffet restaurants usually do.
