One the two layers are set-up, place the pan in hot water and carefully loosen sides with a knife.  Turn out onto a slightly damp cutting board (this prevents it from sticking so much).

Keep a bowl of hot water handy.  Plunge the knife into this water between cuts, allow it to be hot and wet as you slice through.  Slice off a side, as shown.  Using a knife or cookie cutter (also plunged into hot water) to cut the candy into pieces.  If uneven, trim them to even them up.

Allow these candies to sit out on a very lightly greased plate for an hour or two to lose their stickiness.  Keep packaged between layers of parchment paper in the refrigerator.  Since the carrot side is completely unsweetened, it should be kept cold.  So if you happen to make two sweet sides, refrigeration is not necessary.
