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.

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.
