You need to extend your "layout" in your index.html. Like this:

{% extends "layout.html" %}
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head><title>Homepage</title></head>
<body>
<h1>Smells Like Bakin'!</h1>
<p>Welcome to my bakery web site!</p>
</body>
</html>

I hope that helps you a little bit.

p.s.: And you have to switch your "endblock", you have typed them like "blockend".
