Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALMOST perfect I love making these. HOWEVER - I'd like to make the center look like the medium white or red roses that Wilton sells. In the center of the pre-made roses, the two innermost petals are curled around one another, which looks more realistic to me. I'd LOVE to know how they do that!
