Crumbs Cupcakes (Larchmont)

I went to Crumbs on Larchmont this afternoon. Do not go there. The way the store is designed is really weird. The cupcakes are displayed in a large glass case and then there is a glass divider on top of the case. So when you are attempting to ask the kid worker the ingredients of a certain cupcake they cannot hear you because the glass separator is between you. It's like buying a ticket at a movie theater box office without the speaker. Or paying your gas bill in a ghetto area with the bulletproof glass separation. He interpreted my question "What is in the Artie Lange cupcake?" as "What? You want a free sample cupcake?!" Anyway, the kids that work there are not very friendly or helpful...maybe it was because I was annoyed having to read someone's lips as opposed to hearing them speak. I finally ended up with the Capuccino cupcake. It has white cake, chocolate frosting, dusted with cocoa powder and the frosting is lined with chocolate chips. I barely tasted any coffee flavor, the cake was dry, and the frosting is sickly sweet. I took two bites and couldn't finish it. A waste of 3.75. And for that amount of money you think they would have nicer takeout containers than the generic flimsy plastic containers with a lame Crumbs sticker slapped on it. Sprinkles is way better and I don't even like Sprinkles that much.
