Chantilly cake may refer to several unrelated American cakes.

In Hawaii

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.

In the southern United States

In the southern United States, especially Louisiana, the Chantilly cake may refer to a frosted sponge cake layered with Crème Chantilly (whipped cream) and berries.
