    It probably is a fondant cutter - I have one that tiny, it came in a set of 4 different star shapes. I purchased it in the baking supply isle in Micheal's Craft Store.

    Does anyone know where the star shaped cookie cutter she used for the coconut can be purchased? That was the cutest little swizzle stick idea:)

    Does anyone know the make/model number of the blender Martha was using?

    I watched the show today, it is actually coconut. Martha used a star shaped mini cookie cutter (it was quite tiny!) to press out each star. Then she popped it out with the flat end of the skewer (it was hard to get out b/c it is so small).

    Bette: To me it looks like the star is part of the plastic stick.
