The links to the html files are displaced, the content goes between the <a> tags, the references/URL's go into the opening tag.

<!DOCTYPE html>

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

      <li><a href="candy.html">Candy</a></li>
    </ul>

Tim has it spot on :-) the href attribute is the URL that the hyperlink points to. You just need to swap these around!
