This indeed is found in the "Other Account" training material (in the bottom "caveat" box) on slide 12. I didn't notice it the first time through. Another good reason to review the training materials often... I guess I have my question answered. :D

Excellent catch!

Your find is a perfect example of the wisdom of Bishop Burton's advice:
Clerks and auditors should take the training when they are newly called and then again after they have been serving for a period of time.
There's no way a clerk can catch all the details the first time through the training. Only after he has some experience under his belt is he in a position to notice some of those subtleties. Also, all the training lessons were updated in 2008, so if you took the lessons prior to 2008, there is something new for you to learn.

IS there any policy that bans the exchange of cash at the chapel if we are doing a fundraiser as a cake auction at the chapel rec hall?

Not as far as I can find. However General Handbook does say "Only the bishop and his counselors may receive tithes and other offerings" (34.5.2)

Also, under fundraisers, it prohibits things that would be taxable.

Your state may have requirements regarding food items that are sold. Many require that it be cooked in a commercial kitchen witch would be out of reach of the members.
