Hi there! You're doing great, but you have a typo in the line before it. Your previous link is not closed correctly, so it can't really make it to the next link. Take a look:

<!-- You typed this -->
<li><a href="cakes.html">Cakes<a/></li>

<!-- But you meant to type -->
<li><a href="cakes.html">Cakes</a></li>  

Note the placement of the / in the closing tag. It should come before the a. </a>

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Makes total sense now. thank you so much!
