I think that means that it isn't real fondant but looks like fondant when you use it on a cake. Go to the recipe section and type faux fondant in the search, you'll get two different recipes.

Hey cakegal,

I've used it before & I liked it. It tastes very good. It is a lot like BCI. I haven't gotten it to look as good as CarolAnn does... maybe one day! Faux means fake. Give it a try, you just might like it. PM CarolAnn she would be happy to give you some tips. Like I said... she's good at it!

Here is the article on creating a faux fondant look. It's basically a crusting BC recipe (love that...tastes much better than regular fondant) that's put on the cake in such a way that it resembles the look of fondant.

I have a question....
Do you have to give the cake the rounded shape????
Do you have to cut it or use the contour shape pan for the top layer????
Thanks for the tips girls...
I will definately be giving this one a go at...I love the fondant look on wedding cakes....
Thanks again..

You wouldn't have to give the cake a rounded shape or bake it in a contour pan but I think it would be much easier if you did. If you don't, you'll have to add a lot more icing to make sure you don't end up hitting the top edge. I think it would be easier to smooth with a paper towel too if you trimmed off the sharp edge.
