I see that Ron Ben Israel and Maggie Austin make roses with a spiral center.  Does anyone know how to make these.  I've looked on YouTube that, and did a Google search, but I haven't seen anything.  I know of one way to do them but it's not efficient.

ACan you post a picture so I know what you're referring to?

These white roses were done by Ron Ben Israel.  See how the one in the right lower corner swirls.

These are my roses.  You can see how different they are.  I need to make some with a swirl and I just don't seem to be getting it.

Here is a picture of my roses.  They are very different.  I have a client that needs a swirl center and I just don't seem to be able to do it.

Your first petal is also your center, so there is no core.  Make a petal larger than you normally would for the first petal, roll it not too tightly, take your next petal and lay it against the first with only a little overlay.  Hope this makes sense.

Thanks auntginn.  I'll keep working at it.

Thank you so much G_Cakes.  Here's what I finally came up with.  They actually went on the wedding cake of a world famous movie celebrity.  Due to confidentiality I didn't know that at the time. Was a great honor to be a small part of it.
