Oh, Geez - I remember that episode, but I don't remember what she used, either icon_cry.gif . It was, I believe, Kristen of Wicked Goodies - the stacked tires that had veggies and plants in and around them, maybe???

You could try using a clay extruder, they have a tip that has a lot of tiny holes used to make a grass effect.....or in a pinch a garlic press.

I believe it could be spun sugar- they make very thin, shiny strands that look like the corn silk.

That's what I was thinking, too. Check out this pic of Sambuca flames. The sugar can be pulled very thin.
