Menu Cards-How do I list the cake flavors?

 I will have a 3 tier cake with each tier a different flavor. How do I indicate this on the menu without making it sound like guests have a choice? The venue will slice and distribute to the tables but the guests will not be able to say "I want flavor 1 or 2 or" etc. They will just sort it out amongst themselves if they want to swap.
I was just going to say wedding cake but that seemed kind of blah and the bakery told me to make sure I let people know that one of the flavors has nuts in it just in case they are allergic.


Any ideas??
tia!!

I think awhile back someone posted something really cute that sat next to the cake...it was a framed card with a picture of a tiered cake. The cake flavors were written on the tiers. Let me see if I can find it. It was adorable!

Anyone else put their wedding cake/flavors on a menu card? How'd you do it?

Maybe you can have the venue lay slices out on the table with tents stating the flavor of the cake?


Like this?


Maybe you can have photo 2078318-1

Or I would just state on the menu at the table:


Dessert


A three tier wedding cake flavored with yellow, chocolate, and white, topped with whipped frosting.


 


Or something along those lines :)

These are all great ideas. I have all this extra paper from my program kit (rectangular cardstock) so that is why I want to make the menu cards and include the info on there.
misshammy your wording is great. It seems so obvious now, haha: A three tier wedding cake flavored with yellow, chocolate, and white, topped with whipped frosting.
Plumcrush: I love your picture. That is awesome! I may take you up on your offer if you really don't mind.
Would it be weird to use Plumcrush's idea of the picture of the cake with cake names but printed onto the menu cards?

Here was the menu we used:


Here was the menu photo 2078420-1


However, instead of being on the regular food menu, it was placed next to the cake:

Hey Val! We missed you,, too! I'm great, I think... haha. Getting to that frantic point. I am making lists of lists and still feel like I don't have it all together!
My baker said that people will just figure it out at the table in terms of switching. I'm going to out it on the menu cards because I have a lot of space to fill on the card and this does the job AND I want people to know one of the flavors has nuts in it. I'll do some combination of all these ideas I think...

@G8R.Girl:  The headers say, Bottom Layer, Second Layer, Third Layer, and Top Layer.  Here is a link to a larger photo, so you can see the text better.
