When it's cool enough to handle, remove it and start pulling! It'll start out pretty dark.

As you go, it'll take on more and more air, and get lighter and shinier.

DO NOT put it down on your inlaws' kitchen table to take a picture. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET IT OFF. I'm serious. 10 minutes of worried scraping and 5 minutes of worried scrubbing to get the last bit of this stuff off. (No, I never told them what happened.)

Anyway, as you pull, eventually it'll get so hard you can barely stretch it. Cut it into 8ths, rolling each piece into 1" thick strands. Cut those with scissors into 1" pieces.
