A question about a recipe: Griddled Polenta Cakes with Caramelized Onions, Goat Cheese, and Honey

I have a question about step 2 on the recipe "Griddled Polenta Cakes with Caramelized Onions, Goat Cheese, and Honey" from arielleclementine. It says:

"While the polenta is setting up" - What does this mean? While it's on the 5 minutes on the stove or while it's cooling?

yes- i meant while it is cooling in the pan. as nutcakes says, it will become much more firm as it cools. hope you like it!

While it's coolong - the polenta will become much firmer and 'set up'. I'm going to risk this answer without seeing the recipe, but I'm come back if I'm wrong. It helps if you link the recipe in your question, for fastest results. Yum to the title, though.

While it's cooking in the 9-inch square pan.
