Fantastic - I made this for our engagement party drinks and it was hugely popular. I would suggest a rather large dollop of guacamole and make sure you cook the blinis for a little while to make them less bendy!

Very tasty and look very impressive too. I made this last xmas as a pre-dinner canape and it went down very well. I actually cheated and used ready made guacamole but i will definitely be making again and make the guacamole from scratch.
