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...

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.
