Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, but the sweet treats should last forever, especially Whole Foods’ Berry Chantilly Cake. The grocery store treat has taken over TikTok and influenced me to purchase it for my next dinner party.

What is the Whole Foods Berry Chantilly Cake?

Whole Foods describes their Berry Chantilly Cake as a “cult favorite” in their bakery department, featuring layers of delicate vanilla cake, fluffy Chantilly cream frosting and fresh berries. Is your mouth watering? Mine too.

“This cake first made its debut 13 years ago at the Arabella Station store in New Orleans, where one of our talented Bakery team members formulated a recipe based on her grandmother’s original creation,"  the Whole Foods website reads. "It was an instant hit, and other stores picked up the recipe.”

Why is TikTok obsessed with the Whole Foods Berry Chantilly Cake?

TikTok creators are claiming the cake as their new favorite, crediting it as “the perfect mixture of very plain, sweet, but not too sweet.” Another creator, who attended culinary school, stated “A grocery store cake has no business hitting this hard,” and opted to use the cake as dessert for her Galentine’s Party, but couldn’t wait for others to arrive to dig in.

How can I make the Whole Foods Berry Chantilly Cake at home?

While the cake sounds to die for, we all know where prices can fall at Whole Foods. At my local store, the small cake sells for $27, feeding approximately eight people while the quarter sheet cake sells for $54, feeding approximately 20 people. Unfortunately, both are out of my budget.

If you’re looking to make it at home, we had an anonymous source who works at Whole Foods tell us how to create it on a budget. Take the Duncan Hines cake mix and follow the directions on the back but replace the oil with butter and add organic buttercream and berries. It's just as delicious and way more in my college-budget.
