Konditoreien is Namibia's term for "cake shops". These cake shops sell German-inspired or German-influnced cakes and pastries, such as: (1) Apfelstrudel (Apple Strudel- a famous cake also in Germany with the same name);. (2) Sachertorte, a rich chocolate cake that is layered with apricot jam, also found in German Konditorei;. (3) Schwartzwälder Kirchtorte or Black Forest Cake; and other delicious cakes and pastries. I wonder what are my favorite German cakes I can find in Namibia in case I have a chance to visit the country. Maybe I will put Namibia in my wish list of places to visit one day with my German husband. Cakes and pastries available in these "Konditoreien" only show how much the German colonizers has influence the cuisine of Namibia.
