The Bittersweet Cafe has been serving Old Town, in some form or another, for more than 25 years. Its owners must be watching these newbie bakers opening cupcake shops with the kind of resigned amusement that Hank Aaron watched Barry Bonds smash his home run record.

I was sort of bemused myself when I saw Bittersweet’s Lilliputian and Brobdingnagian cupcakes on display in a glass case. I keep going back and forth on whether I think Bittersweet is mocking the current cupcake craze or slyly cashing in on it. Maybe a bit of both?

By the way, Express Night Out just cataloged a few more oddball cupcakes out there.

A photo of Bittersweet’s Lilliputian cupcakes, called “pupcakes,” is after the jump. The treats are smaller than they look here.
