You may need to change your Profile name.
As it may not comply with Google Names Policy.
Here is an email I got from Google.


Our system has determined that the name you provided on your Google+ profile MyMum BakesCakes may not actually be a name.

It may be that the name you provided is that of a business you represent. Or it may be that this is actually your name and our system made a mistake.

We've got a few options for you:
  • If this is the name of a business, brand, or other organization, please sign in to your Google account and change the profile's name to a representative of the organization. You can then, while logged into this profile, create a Google+ Page for the organization. Pages are designed specifically with the needs of organizations in mind, while profiles are designed for individuals."
