Remove foil and dust with more coating. Cut into shapes using a cookie cutter or squares using a pizza cutter, dipping the exposed edges into more coating as needed so they don't stick together.Store marshmallows in a covered (but not airtight) container in a cool, dry place, dusted with powdered sugar or lined with paper towels between layers to absorb excess moisture.
