The result from the first “instruction”

The text on top of the cupcake isn’t very readable.
In styles.css , find the h1 selector. Change the color property to white.

Are still not exactly accessible, the white font does not have enough contrast with the cream on the background picture.
Which can be easily fixed with a small change ( among other possible solutions )
You add text-shadow to it.

Ok, I see that later on in part 8/9 it is being addressed. ( Although in my opinion, the suggested solution makes it looks worse )
I still feel it is a bit confusing.
The chapter speaks about accessibility, and it seems that an a11y issue is introduced by the instruction itself and left as is without an explanation or a solution.
