Destination Wedding Venues – In Victoria Falls There is Cake…
Are you looking into a wedding venue that’s romantic and notable? What about Victoria Falls in Africa? How romantic would that be? Destination weddings are very popular right now. What is a destination wedding I hear you ask? It’s when you travel to an ideal place and get married there. In this case, it would be a Victoria Falls wedding.
Many Zimbabweans who leave the country, return to marry in their country. If you are considering this option – it’s a lovely balance of beauty and home. Your relatives would love to join you in this little town on the edge of the Zambezi and get a few days to have a holiday too.

Cake Traditions In Zimbabwe
The wedding cake plays a large role in all Traditional Weddings in Zimbabwe.
Usually there is a lot of cake!
- There are two reasons for this. The weddings tend to be BIG. The guest list can mean very little – often extended family and friends – show up on the day. The more the merrier… Also, a lovely tradition that many do, is to gift a cake to each of the couples parents. It’s a way to show honour and express thanks and gratitude. I was once a maid of honour at a wedding. As part of the bridal party we crouched low and carried the cake to the groom’s parents. The grooms’ party gave another cake to the brides’ parents. Recently, we attended a wedding of some dear friends and each party ‘danced’ their way way to the parents carrying the cake in one hand! I held my breath through most of the song with my eyes glued to the cake – my mind started racing, wondering what would happen if it got dropped… However, all turned out well and everyone was delighted with their cakes.
- Another common tradition that couples world wide practice is to keep the first tier of the wedding cake and eat it on the 1st Anniversary or when the first child is born. This is a big concern for to-be-brides.
The First Tier Of Your Wedding Cake
Some things to think about
- Who will be “looking after” this cake tier? If you are keeping it, it requires care. Some freeze it. But, with power shortages in the country – this may not work so well.
- If it is a fruit cake, you would need to feed the cake regularly with brandy. It keeps the cake moist and preserves it. Do you know how to do this? Be sure to ask if you require more information.
- Another option, is to save the top tier and eat it with special friends or family that couldn’t make the wedding.
- Have it packed up and take it with you on honeymoon! So many wedding guides stress the importance of actually eating more of the cake; than what you fed each other when you cut it.
- Or celebrate your 3 month anniversary or something like that, by eating this top tier.
- What about your first anniversary? Hopefully your top tier makes it. If not, order a new cake! I would be happy to recreate your top tier and will give you a discount.
In Zimbabwe, it’s traditional to have fruitcake at the reception. And this has been the most popular so far.
Modern brides are leaning toward flavour sponges, carrot, red velvet and other more well-known flavours.
Some of the flavours I make –
- Fruit Cake
- Chocolate Mousse
- Red Velvet
- Carrot Cake
I’m not stressed with this, it’s your special day if you want each cake tier a different flavour, that’s fine by me.
Just a note about fruit cakes. I include nuts, cherries and soak the fruit in brandy. If you wish to omit any of the above, please ensure you mention this from the start.
We make Anniversary Wedding Cakes too! In fact anything wedding related!

Have you got a particular cake knife that you would like to use? I can decorate it with ribbon and fresh flowers. It gives a nice touch to the occasion and setting.
Don’t have a cake knife? Use the search find one on this site, I like it because you can personalise it with the date etc. I am big into being unique and making your wedding day special. What I loved about the idea of getting a cake knife set, was that long after the cake is eaten – you will have them to remember your day by and treasure them, even passing them on to your children for their wedding. Start a tradition!
Gifts For Your Bridal Team
Cake gifts are possible to organise. When I got married, I made each of my bridemaids and our parents a mini cake. They were so delighted with the personal touch and when the wedding comes into the subject – those cakes get mentioned!
If you are wanting to get other gifts – personalised gifts for the wedding party – you should check these out! . Perhaps you could get some or get inspiration for gifting to your bridal team to say a big thanks! They too will speak of this long after your wedding day.
Honeymoon Options That Are Worth Looking At
A beautiful option is on the banks of the Zambezi River in Livingstone Zambia at the Royal Livingstone Hotel. Even if you don’t stay there, be sure to visit – they have high tea, zebras grazing on the lawn and sundowners on the deck with the thundering falls in close range.
