Napoleon (nah-poh-lay-ohn) is the name used outside France for MILLE-FEUILLE, a puff pastry concoction filled with CREME

I’ATissiERE, or cream, and sprinkled with sugar. The main difference between the two cakes is that the mille-feuille is covered with icing sugar, whereas the Napoleon is covered with a white frosting and decorated with lines of melted chocolate or chocolate icing.

Napoleons are traditionally sweet, but, like mille-feuille, they may be made with savoury fillings.
