It magically converts you into an iconic developer.

The above code works fine since it just echos what you pass it - but
putting that in app helper is somewhat silly. You seem to be assuming
that only the last call e.g. return $this->Html->link($this->Html-
>image()); would use "output". This pseudo example is how the core
helpers work, doing what you've done (to avoid "echo"? seriously?) is
just wrong.

You've deliberately broken something which worked. It is suggested you
undo the mistake...
