Chantilly cake may refer to several unrelated American cakes.

In Hawaii[edit]

In Hawaii, Chantilly Cake dates back to the 1950s.[1] Usually, Chantilly cakes are chocolate cakes with a Chantilly frosting, which is essentially the coconut frosting from a German chocolate cake without the coconut.[2] This is in contrast to the typical usage of creme Chantilly, which refers to sweetened whipped cream.[3]

In The Southern Continental US[edit]

In the Southern US, especially Louisiana, the Chantilly cake may refer to a frosted sponge cake layered with Crème Chantilly (whipped cream) and berries.[4]
