Customizing the Map Markers task 1/2 - In app.js, on line 16, set the variable "markerImage" to "baby-cupcake.png"

Good day all, I have some difficulties with the first code challenge. The code added is the following:

var markerImage = "img/baby-cupcake.png";

Unfortunately is not working and I get the following message :

Bummer! The string 'baby-cupcake.png' hasn't been assigned to the 'markerImage' variable.

Does anybody have a better idea? it seems a very simple task but I may have missed something.

Thank you
