I can't get my embedded  if statement working  in a html table.

here's one row of my table from my cart index...

<td><%= cart.created_at.strftime("%m/%d/%Y")    %> |  <%=  cart.product_id  %> |  <% if cart.processing == 'true'%> <%= Processing order %>  <% end %></td>

basically I want to indicate when an item is being processed in the cart... 
Try it like this:
<td><%= cart.created_at.strftime("%m/%d/%Y") %> | <%= cart.product_id %> | <%= 'Processing order' if cart.processing == 'true'%></td>
Also, why is cart.processing returning a string? (Or why are you testing the value is 'true'?) It would be more natural to have cart.processing? be truthy.
