They worked on seasons 2 and 3 of the Netflix show ¡Nailed It! México, and have also collaborated with brands such as KitchenAid, Amazon, Satin Ice, Tiffany & Co, and more. They have taught classes in countries such as the United States, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, and throughout Mexico as well as been judges at various professional cake-design contests.
