I never understood that saying either. Most people get served first when it's their cake.

I get it now.

You want to keep ahold of your cake for forever but you also want to eat it at the same time too- but it can't be both, you have to pick one.

Then have a slice & freeze the rest till you want more! Then you can avoid sharing.

You cant HAVE your cake, as in the keep it, and also eat it. You either eat it or have it.

It used to be silly, but it makes sense if you think about it. It does sound funny though.
