index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lists and Links</title>
  </head>
  <ul>

    <a href="cakes.html"><li>Cakes</li></a>
    <a href="pies.html"><li>Pies</li></a>
    <a href="candy.html"><li>Candy</li></a>

  </ul>
</html>

you need to nest the <a> tags inside the <li> tags. like this

<li><a href="cakes.html">Cakes</a></li>
<li><a href="pies.html">Pies</a></li>
<li><a href="candy.html">Candy</a></li>

Place the anchor tags <a> within the list item tags <li> so that the list items are children of the un-ordered list tag <ul> like so and it will work: <li><a href="cakes.html">Cakes</li></a> <li><a href="pies.html">Pies</li></a> <li><a href="candy.html">Candy</li></a>
