If you let the cake sit too long in the pan you run the risk of it sticking to the pan. At which point you will need to pop it back in the oven again for a few minutes to warm it up so it will release. Which kind of defeats the cooling process.
I let my cakes cool in the pan until the point where I can pick them up without using mitts but it's still warm to the touch. Any sooner than that and I am flirting with disaster.
