This was a cake to celebrate the graduatian and master degree in psychology of the birthday girl.
Here in Portugal the graduating students have a briefcase (I’m not sure if this is the correct term) with several ribons (the colours vary according to the course) where everyone writes their best wishes for the future carreer. The cerimony includes the blessing of this briefpaste.
The uniform is a black suit and a cloack usualy with several emblems atached. In the case ot the master degree, the student wears a top hat and a cane.
