  <body>
 <ul> 
   <a href="cakes.html"> <li>Cakes</li></a>
   <a href="pies.html"><li>Pies</li></a>

Here you go:

    <ul>
      <li><a href="cakes.html">Cakes</a></li>
      <li><a href="pies.html">Pies</a></li>
      <li><a href="candy.html">Candy</a></li>
    </ul>

When you make the link in a list item, you need to make the <li> first, then the link: <a href>, then close it with </a> then </li> to close the list item.

I haven't done HTML in a while so it took me a minute to get it right myself.

Yep, open list <li> then open href=value <a href>, then close </a> then close the </li> is how I keep it in memory.
