Mayor Bloomberg had no reason to be annoyed about his likeness appearing on a giant cupcake at a sweet shop opening today: We just saw a photo of the cupcake, and it's seriously lame.

The cupcake, a publicity stunt for The House of Cupcakes, which opened in the West Village today, was hailed in a press release as a 2 5-pound, 35,800-calorie confection called The Mayor, " complete with his honor's face on it."

Naturally, we expected something remarkable.

 We hope this giant cupcake tasted better than it looked.
