The 2010 Oscars are coming around the corner, and for those who throw an annual Oscar bash, now's the time to plan the menu. Cakespy posts a HowTo for the "Avatart", the perfect Avatar-viewing snack.

For the filling:
Jam, about 1 heaping teaspoonful per pastry (your choice of flavor; I used blueberry)
