Unmold it beforehand so you can relax and enjoy your dinner!

I agree with Amanda. Also if it completely cools in the pan, I'd worry about the caramel solidifying too much, making it hard to unmold (i.e., you might have to re-warm it slightly to get it to release.)

Also, I've found that food left to sit too long in even well-seasoned cast iron will sometimes discolor.
