Karpatka is a traditional Polish cream pie filled with russel cream or vanilla milk pudding cream. It is made of one sheet of short pastry covered with a layer of choux pastry or two layer of the second with a layer of the cream in between. It probably takes its name from the mountain-like shape of the pastry (after the Carpathian MountainsKarpaty in Polish). The cake is dusted with icing sugar.

There are karpatka baking mixes available in shops in Poland. In 1995 "Karpatka" became a trade mark registered for Delecta SA for the determination of cream powder in the Polish Patent Office.
