Smells Like Bakin page layout help

I don't know if this will be able to be posted but i added the @ signs so maybe it won't be read. But pretty much my problem is if you copy and paste this and save it to an html file and open it. you can see that i can't get the pictures to align. Is it because i didn't link the CSS documents correctly? The "Cupcake of the Week" and "Fresh out the Oven" should be side by side within a grid of 12. Ive gone through the lesson multiple times now and I've checked my text editor a bunch of times as well and i cannot seem to figure out why this is still happening.....please help me I'm a noob!

Wrap your code with 3 backticks (```) on the line before and after. If you specify the language after the first set of backticks, that'll help us with syntax highlighting.

Quick question, have you tried comparing your index.html file to the one they supplied? I would suggest doing that first and seeing if there's something small you may have missed. Make sure to compare your style sheet as well. Hope that helps.

something so simple thank you guys very much for your quick responses!
