Is Metallic Twine Safe To Bake With?
No, sparkly twine typically contains a metallic coating or thread that can be made from materials such as aluminium or other metals. When exposed to high heat, these metals can potentially release harmful substances or even cause a fire hazard. Therefore, it is not recommended to use metallic twine for baking or any other application involving direct heat or contact with food during the cooking process.

It's always important to read the product labels and ensure that the twine you choose is explicitly designated as food-safe before using it in baking or cooking applications.
