Her county does not approve her having a business the way she had first been told. They are ok with a few hobby cakes.
It's really hard for some people to understand that a few cakes for friends and family that you get paid for is not going to blow up the phones at the Pentagon or something. Swat teams are not surrounding the houses of those who bake thusly.
It is ok. It is ok with the officials. We can get paid for baking like this, a little baking. Not a business. One cake two cake three cakes is not a business.
Taking money for a cake does not institute a business in many locales.
