completed task, but I am still getting a bummer.

The task wants me to set the href value as pies.html. I did that but I am getting and error message.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lists and Links</title>
   <a href="cakes.html"> <li>Cakes</li></a>
   <a href="pies.html"><li>Pies</li></a>
   <a href="candy.html"><li>Candy</li></a>

Here you go:

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

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.
