???? re Nordic Ware "fancy" cake molds--have you used them?

I was thinking about getting one of these, specifically to make one of my Christmas dinner desserts, just for something different:

Have you ever used them? With the ones that have especially angular or "pointy" designs, do the details show up in the cakes? Is it hard to remove the cakes? Also, are they non-stick, and if so, do the cakes brown properly?

In particular, I was considering one of the following shapes: the chrysanthemum, fleur-de-lis, holiday tree or cathedral molds. I'm thinking of doing a babas au rhum, although that might change.
