If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, there’s a new bakery for you to try in west Kennewick.
Artfetti opened about a month ago at 1360 N. Louisiana St., Suite F, in the shopping center just north of the Carmike Cinemas near Olive Garden.
It’s a novel endeavor for owners José and Silvia Garcia, because neither had worked in the food service industry before. He used to test lasers for a firm in Mukilteo, while she worked in technical design for Boeing.
But the couple, who grew up in the Yakima Valley, baked on the side for family and friends for the past five years. It was after moving to the Tri-Cities last winter to be closer to family that they decided to bring their treats to the masses.
Never miss a local story.
“We went out on a limb and did this,” José Garcia said.
Artfetti offers cupcakes and macaroons in numerous flavors, such as pistachio, blackberry, raspberry, cookies ’n cream and red velvet, alongside standards such as chocolate and vanilla. The flavors change daily, and new ones should debut in the coming weeks.
“There’s a lot of flavors I haven’t been able to try yet,” Silvia said.
Mini cheesecakes also are for sale. Their custom cakes use fondant or buttercream, with Silvia also crafting cake toppers of animals and other figures.
Prices range from $1.80 for a macaroon to $10.50 for a half-dozen. Cupcakes are $2.50 each or $14.50 for a half-dozen.
Artfetti is open seven days a week with hours from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

“We call that our ‘selfie’ wall,” José said.
