Cut potatoes crosswise into 1/16-in.-thick (paper-thin) slices using a mandoline with a hand guard. Place potato slices in a large microwave-safe bowl filled with cold water. Microwave potatoes in water on HIGH for 6 to 8 minutes or just until slices begin to soften, but not fork-tender. Drain well; place potato slices on paper towels. Pat dry and return to bowl. Add oil mixture; toss well to coat slices.
Place 2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese into the bottom of each muffin-pan cup. Spread 1 rounded Tbsp. mashed potatoes over cheese in each cup.
For each potato rose, on a flat surface, lay about 15 potato slices in a vertical strip by partially overlapping the slices. Starting at the bottom end of the strip, tightly roll up into a log shape, holding onto slices while rolling. Press one end of the potato log into the mashed potato layer in muffin cup. Slightly spread center open with your finger. Create a smaller potato log by repeating rolling process using 5 potato slices. Place the smaller log into the open center.
