I can’t stand it when people say or write: ‘They want to have their cake and eat it.’ If you have a cake, of course you can eat it. And then it’s finished.
What they ought to say is: ‘They want to eat their cake and have it.’ This means you want to consume the cake and also still have it afterwards. You want to have it both ways.
