After a couple cuts the cake at a wedding and then it's served to everyone else, do you usually disassemble the cake in the kitchen or do you just cut it around the tiers at the cake table? My niece is having a 5-tier cake and has around 200 guests.

I never cut a cake, or like to see one cut in front of the guest. I lime to take the cake to the kitchen, plate it. Serve it or put the plates back out on the cake table for the guest to pick up.

I also am lucky enough to not have to cut the cake, but i've seen it done both ways and I think it definitely seems the most professional if it is taken to the back and cut then served/set out. Cakes are beautiful all put together but taking them apart in front of those eating it take some of the magic away from the cake in my opinion.
