what is wrong with below code:

Not sure what is wrong with this code, seems like a task issue.

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask
from flask import render_template

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/')
def index():
    return render_template('index.html')
templates/index.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>
templates/layout.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>{% block title %}<title>Smells Like Bakin'</title>{% endblock %}</head>

Hey there Sidharth Kaushik ! :wave:

The first step in this Challenge is definitely a bit tricky. At first, it sounds like it's wanting us to wrap the block title around the <title> tags, but it's actually wanting it wrapped around the content of the title element.

<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>{% block title %}Smells Like Bakin'{% endblock %}</title>
  </head>
  <body>
  {% block content %} {% endblock %}
  </body>
</html>

I hope this helps you get rolling again! :smiley:
