Setting the link to candy.html is not registering? What am I missing?

I may not be understanding the question, but in the exercise we link it to a webpage or URL, whereas this is asking us to link to cakes.html, pies.html, candy.html, but I seem to keep hitting an error, but I am not sure what the error is? I even tried putting an https in front, but that didn't work and doesn't really follow what the link in the challenge task? What am i missing?

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

your closing anchor tag has the / after the a

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

should instead be

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