Chantilly cake may refer to different regional American cakes.
In the southern United States, the Chantilly cake may refer to a frosted sponge cake layered with Crème Chantilly, a type of whipped cream, and berries. The Berry Chantilly Cake was made famous by baker Chaya Conrad while working at a Whole Foods in New Orleans.
In Hawaii, Chantilly Cake dates back to the 1950s. Usually, Chantilly cakes are chocolate cakes with a “Chantilly frosting”, which is essentially the coconut frosting from a German chocolate cake without the coconut. This is in contrast to the typical usage of creme Chantilly, which refers to sweetened whipped cream.
