About this module

In Module 3, you built an Alexa skill that says, "Hello! Welcome to Cake Time. That was a piece of cake! Bye!" In this module, you'll create back-end handlers to ask your Cake Time skill questions and receive the answers. You'll also create the front-end intents to turn the customer's utterances into requests for those handlers.

At the end of this module, your Cake Time skill will be able to ask the customer questions, listen for the answers, and respond to the customer.
