The phrase “You can’t have your cake and eat it too” is an idiom that dates back several centuries. Its origins can be traced to the 16th century, although the exact phrase has evolved over time. Originally, the phrase appeared in different forms, such as “you can’t eat your cake and have it” or “you can’t have your cake and eat it.” The basic meaning has always been the same: once you consume or use something, you no longer have it to show off to others, removing the possibility of having everything exactly as one wants.
