You need to use an image tag between the body code. The picture is inside a folder named img in the same directory as the file your working on, so you need to make sure you reference that folder by making the source of the image tag be img/cupcake.jpg. The code should look like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
    <title>Smells Like Bakin' Cupcake Company</title>
  </head>

  <body>
    <img src="img/cupcake.jpg" alt="">        
  </body>
</html>

Like the above code example<img src="folderlocation/imagename.ext" alt="" name="">

You can include an inline style within the image code, dimensions, captions, etc. Just find where in the code you want to put the image and then make sure your naming the exact location of the image, and the exact name of the image with the correct extension (.jpg, .png, .gif)

You can add a image with the img tag. The img tag requires an attribute called src. This is the url of the image file, it can be a Relative URL or an Absolute URL.

<body>

    <img src="image.jpg" alt=""> 

</body>

This is an example of a Absolute URL

<body>

    <img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/ee/Ascanius_Shooting_the_Stag_of_Sylvia_1682_Claude_Lorrain.jpg" alt=""> 

</body>

I hope this helps :)
