Needless to say, season 1 victors Ruth Cabeza and Rubí Esparza have garnered much attention from fans of the series, who cannot help but be curious about what this fantastic duo might be up to these days. Luckily, we are here to explore the same!
Ruth and Rubí’s Sugar Rush: The Baking Point Journey
Having met each other via the Internet, Ruth and Rubí decided to enter the Netflix show together to wow everyone with their skills as bakers. Unfortunately, the two did not have the best start as they were in the bottom two in the initial round of the first day, losing thirty minutes from their saved-up time for the next challenge. However, they were able to make it through to the next day and dominated the competition by winning both levels, adding an extra hour to the time they would have to cook during the finals.
Ruth and Rubí continued their excellent performance by winning the second round on Day 3, as well, earning an additional hour. With this achievement, they secured themselves a place in the semi-finals, where they had to compete against three other teams. Unfortunately, the two friends did not have the best start as they ended up landing in the bottom 2 in the first round, which cost them 30 minutes of cooking time for the next stage. Ultimately, it was down to them, and the duo of Karen Castañeda and Gabriela “Gaby” Iracheta, but the latter two had to say goodbye to the show.
For the finale, the bakers had to create various dishes based on the concept of Magical Mexico. After the first round, Ruth and Rubí were declared winners of the challenge, assuring their position in the top 2, while Alan Tercero and Alejandra “Ale” Ambríz had to leave. Facing off against Israel Vázquez and Iván Zavala, the two women gave it their all to create a cake inspired by the beautiful artistry of Mexico. Thanks to their flavor profile and eye-catching decoration, Ruth and Rubí were declared winners of the competition.
