    sticks vs securing

    Dear experts,

    What word do 'sticks' and 'securing' connected to and what do they mean separately or in the connection to other words in the sentence:

    '13 cocktail sticks securing cheese and pineapple'

    Thank you.

    Re: sticks vs securing

    A cocktail stick is like a tiny skewer; it is pointy at both ends, and is used to garnish cocktails. For example, if you order a martini, it might come with several olives skewered on a cocktail stick. In your example, "secured" means held in place.
