Damn, now I want pie.. :3

I... may have learned the "icing is not cake-glue" lesson as an adult. On a seven layer rainbow cake. It was sad.
Unlike this story, which was amazing. Quite possibly my favorite part (beyond the pie, of course) was the brotherly teasing. Finn petting the DVD case cracked me up.
In short, since this is for me, you're immensely talented and thank you for sharing.

In addition to all the Hudmel family feels, I now have all the pie-craving feels. And Thanksgiving feels. At least I'm reading this now at the onset of fall and not in the middle of summer. That would require pie-intervention, whereas this at least means I only have to wait a few months before indulging in all my pie-craving-Thanksgiving feels.
I adore these little homey domestic scenes with Burt, Carole, Kurt, and Finn. The banter between Kurt and Finn was adorable. I loved how Finn's sole goal is eating pie while all Kurt is interested after eating his Thanksgiving feelings is sleeping them off on the couch. You also managed to bring early Klaine feels into this with the Toy Story 3 DVD. I love how Finn teases Kurt about it, even though Kurt insists that it's not the same as him and Rachel because Blaine and him are just friends. Bb.
And I just love Kurt cooking. He seems so comfortable in the kitchen, and the fact that he's even willing to look a little less than his best - a streak of flour in his hair, for instance - only serves to emphasis that he's a baker at heart. I love how you write him. He's precious in this.
Carole actually did break my heart a little by saying that she wished that she had been able to give Finn a proper Thanksgiving dinner more often. At least Finn was a good sport about it and she has Kurt now. Still. All the Hudmel feels.

OH MY GOD. I MADE A SAN ADREAS FAULT LINE CAKE WHEN I WAS 10! It was the first time I ever tried to layer cakes and it didn't turn out very well. Awesome job Caitlin!

UGH, THIS IS SO CUTE. I personally adore your writing, especially the Finn & Kurt brotherly fluff. This story is hilarious and sweet and fabulously written! I love Finn's infatuation with pie. It was hilariously adorable when Finn kept poking Kurt and trying to wake him up for pie. Ah, brotherly love... ;)

Mmm... I could totally go for some pie now. A very tasty story - oh, and the family moments were sweet too! )

this was amazing! Finn's line about Blaine's DVD case made me laugh so much :D this is why you're my favourite author :D x

I know that I am prone to saying that stories you write are my absolute favorite ever, but this really is one that I come back to over and over again. Because there is just that much to love.
1. I LOVE that Finn and Kurt have come to a place that Finn will come to the kitchen in his holey boxers and it not be a big deal.
2. Kurt running around like a five year old trying to watch the parade and cook at the same time is the best thing that I have ever seen. Not to mention his shock that Finn has never seen the parade.
3. You always mix just the right touch of angst into you fluff at the right moments. Just the mention of Mollie was perfect and explained all of Kurt's reactions to the holiday.
4. All of the brotherly fluff was just perfect. And my favorite was Finn teasing Kurt about Blaine. It really amde me want to squeal a little and smoosh their cheeks.
5. The focus on the pie was the perfect device for moving this story foward. And I love that you carried it right on through to the end. It put a really nice finish on a really great piece.

Now I am ready for Thanksgiving! Yum... this sounds like my Thanksgiving too. Cooking all morning, Macy's parade, pie, anything that isn't football on TV... leftover pie for late night snack... 3 hours of sleep before Black Friday shopping. I just need Kurt over for Thanksgiving! :)

| WELL NOW I'M CRAVING PIE chapter 1 . 5/11/2011
Very accurate, this is exactly what probably happened.
Love how this is in Finn's POV.
Well now I'm really craving pie.

You know what I would have done with the cake? made it so you could see the split, filled it with icing, and covered it with rock looking objects that are edible. Therefore people think I did it on purpose and that I'm not that much of a bad baker.

Oh my gosh, I just adore every single one of your oneshots. And drabbles. And stories. I have to think incredibly hard to find my favorite, and even then always think, "No, what about this one?"
On to the topic of this particular story, I just melted. The Hudmel family interactions you have are just fantastic. I love love love how you've made all of them interact in one way or the other, and how they all have their distinct ways of interaction. Finn and Kurt are just the best brothers ever, and the way you write Finn as this sweet-always-hungry-joking-around kind of guy is adorable, but could totally fit into canon. Your stories have made me love Finn.
I know I've said this before, but you've totally pinned everyone in canon. Their voices are just right there, as I read, talking in my head. It's just so fantastic.
Finn teasing Kurt about Blaine was so perfect. Just...just...best brothers ever.
And how Burt and Finn were so incredibly into the game. And Kurt's obsessive baking. And just everything. I just adore everything.
That was the rambliest review I've ever written. Listening to Starship doesn't help.
Well, anyways. Forever love you!

This was so fucking cute I just want to smush it and read it forever.
I squealed like 180 times while reading it. It was fantastic.
