Loved these - really pretty flower shape, feel very solid + well made-you don't feel they will bend out of shape. Haven't used the lid to imprint a shape, but have pressed one of the smaller shapes into the top of a biscuit cut with one of the bigger ones, and this looked really pretty - also gave my daughter lines to follow with her icing, so she was really pleased! I like they way they fit inside each other and then in the case, but couldn't figure out how to open it! The secret is to twist, then pull! Very classic shape, I know these will get a lot of use in the years to come.
