Bummer! The 'featured-cupcake' element has one correct class, but is missing the second.

From what I can tell it looks like you have added the two classes to a div for the new cupcakes section. Take a second look and make sure that you are adding the classes to the correct div.

You have the right idea but I think you are just on the wrong spot. It should look like this when correct div id="featured-cupcake" class="grid_5 omega"

I can't see the featured cupcake div above but the classes that you added to the div with the id="new-cupcake" (above line 20) are exactly how you are meant to do it.


'class="grid_5 omega"' looks correct to me--two classes separated by a space. It must be something else about how the element's formatted...

I had this exact same problem...let me know when you figure it out ;)

Without seeing it in a code block it's hard to tell exactly what is happening with your code, compare what you have to the code below...

  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
  <title>Smells Like Bakin' Cupcake Company</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

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

Sometimes the parser will throw an error with a misleading description, depending on what syntax mistakes are present.
