The Famous Berry Chantilly Cake Price

Whole Foods Market offers a wide variety of cakes such as vanilla, chocolate, carrot, tiramisu, vegan, and gluten-free cakes, but their most famous cake is without a doubt Berry Chantilly Cake.

Whole Foods’ famous Berry Chantilly Round Cakes cost between $12 to $25 and can feed between 2 to 10 people. Their Berry Chantilly Sheet Cakes cost between $50 to $180 and can feed a big party between 25 to 100 people.

Ever since the creation of this cake more than a decade ago by a Whole Foods Market baker at the Arabella Station store in New Orleans based on her grandmother’s family recipe, the Berry Chantilly Cake has been admired and imitated everywhere, but never surpassed.

It has spawned dozens of online copycats and even its very own hashtag: #berrychantilly. You will find numerous iterations of it on the internet. But if you want the original version of Berry Chantilly Cake, you can only get it from Whole Foods Market.

This cake is made with natural and high-quality ingredients such as fresh berries and cage-free eggs. It does not contain any hydrogenated fats, high-fructose corn syrup, or sweeteners such as aspartame, sucralose, or saccharin. If you want to indulge in your sweet tooth but still want something good for you, the Whole Foods Market Berry Chantilly Cake is a great option.

You can even customize your Berry Chantilly Cake. The bakery team at your local Whole Foods Market is happy to add a personal message to your cake. All you have to do is ask.

Whole Foods Market offers Berry Chantilly Cake in 6 different sizes: 4 inch round cake, 6 inch, 8 inch, quarter sheet cake, half sheet, and full sheet.

Not every Whole Foods location will offer all 6 sizes of Berry Chantilly Cake. Also, the price of even the same size of Berry Chantilly Cake can vary based on the location of the Whole Foods Market.
