Create and offer exceptional pastries and sweets that are natural, made from scratch, and convey a sense of nostalgia.

These aren’t your typical pastries and sweets.

Every pastry and treat is a chance to create a memory.

For the past four years, Hetty Arts has been making unique, delicious treats from her pastry truck. She creates pastries and treats that bring joy, fun, and celebration to everyday life. From pastries, treats, and sweets to out-of-the-box orders and custom wedding cakes, Hetty’s intricate delicacies are sold every day from her truck and local merchants across Fort Wayne.

Her small business venture began in the midwest, where Hetty recognized her passion for running a pastry company. Fort Wayne was the natural place to begin, and Hetty Arts Pastry was born.

Before Hetty started her pastry truck, she challenged herself to pursue her passion and learn as much as she could. She attended culinary school in Cincinnati and worked alongside the best in New York City and Chicago. Her extensive experience in fine pastry gives her the creativity and skills to create pastries and treats that go above and beyond her competition.

Presenting pastry in unique ways is Hetty’s style, and her pastry truck is an extension of her creativity. As a Fortitude Founder, Hetty Arts is exemplifying the entrepreneurial spirit by doing what has never been done before in Fort Wayne.
