Sorry but I don't get it... Please can you write the complete question so I can help you, because the challenge is asking for one task, but you are doing another one,

The instructions are: "Create a constant named favDessert and assign to it a string containing your favorite dessert. "

let favDessert = "favDessert"

Here favDessert is the constant they asked you to create, and "favDessert" is the string containing your favorite dessert that is being assigned to it.

Ok. your code is right, maybe try to change the "favDessert" to another one "IceCream" for example, so your code should be something like this:

let favDessert = "IceCream"

That works for me :)

Sure. You had "favDesert" so I just stuck with it. It doesn't matter, as anything inside double-quotes is a String. The editor would have accepted "xyxyxy"
