Flask basics template inheritance

Good day, I would like to get some help how to solve the problem. I already added the Smells like Bakin but Im not sure whats wrong. Make sure the <title> tag still has its title. "Smells Like Bakin'" should be in the block, too.

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask
from flask import render_template

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/')
def index():
    return render_template('index.html')
templates/index.html
{%extends 'layout.html'%}

{%block title%}
Smells Like Bakin
{%endblock%}

{%block content%}
<p>Welcome to my bakery web site!</p>
{%endblock%}
templates/layout.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>{% block title %}{% endblock %}</title>
  </head>
    <body>
    {%block content%}
    {%endblock %}
    </body>
</html>

I believe you have stumbled at stage three, and the mistake you have made is that you have removed this from your content block:

{% block content %}
<h1>Smells Like Bakin'!</h1>
<p>Welcome to my bakery web site!</p>
{% endblock %}

In the layout file, "Smells Like Bakin'" is the title, but in this file it is originally a <h1> that resided in the body.

Hope this helps
