Do you mean using chocolate transfers? You can see a few in my photos. You cut the acetate until it's the right height for the size of your cake. You pour melted chocolate onto acetate that's been decorated with colored cocoa powered, then let set to the point of still being pliable, but not hard. You wrap the chocolate around the cake and refrigerate until the chocolate is set, then peel off the acetate.

She might also be talking about those slab chunks that people layer around the outside of the cake, like big, thin candy bars layered around. However, I don't know how to actually make them icon_rolleyes.gif...I know I have seen instructions somewhere, but I cannot recall where (whether it's here on CC or on an external link)... I am sure it would help if we had the correct terminology lol.

melt your chocotale and spread it on strips of acetate.When it starts to get firm (not set) cut it into squares with a pizza cutter. If you polish the acetate with a soft dry cloth before pouring the chocolate on it gives that slabs a lovely sheen.
