A dacquoise is a dessert cake made with layers of almond and hazelnut meringue and whipped cream or buttercream.[1] It takes its name from the feminine form of the French word dacquois, meaning 'of Dax', a town in southwestern France. It is usually served chilled and accompanied by fruit.

A particular form of the dacquoise is the marjolaine, invented by legendary French chef Fernand Point, which is long and rectangular and combines almond and hazelnut meringue layers with chocolate buttercream.
