adding classes to an element

I am unable to pass one of my challenges and cannot for the life of me see what is wrong with my code. It keeps telling me Bummer! You're missing both classes on the 'featured-cupcake' element.

Can any one tell me what I am doing wrong?

Question Add the classes 'grid_5' and 'omega' to the 'featured-cupcake' element.

My answer <!-- <div class="container clearfix"> <div id="featured-cupcake"> <div class="grid_5 omega"> <h2>Cupcake of the Week</h2> <img src="img/featured-cupcake.jpg"> </div> </div> </div> -->

I remember having problems on this one too. Try doing this:

<div class="featured-cupcake grid_5 omega"></div>

thanks very much I was trying to add the grid_5 and omega to a seperate <div>

Can't see your version of the code. But i think you'll figure out what you did wrong when having a look at the solution:

<div class="grid_5 omega" id="featured-cupcake">

thanks I was trying to place it in a seperate <div>

how did you get the code to show in your reply
