The first thing we have to do is clear-up a few centuries old sayings:
Let Them Eat Cake
Attributed to sassy Marie Antoinette when approached about the grumblings from her starving subjects.
Cake was the term used to describe burnt browned bits of bread often found on the bottom of bread ovens in 18th Century France, though that didn’t seem to save her neck.
You Can’t Have Your Cake And Eat It Too
Which, in fact, you can do. This is used as a cautionary term for something that appears impossible to do, but, IN FACT, you MUST have your cake before you eat it, so the correct way to use this term should be, ‘You can’t eat your cake and have it too’ to represent a situation that is in doubt, because if you eat your cake, you don’t have any left.
I know- confusing.
But, now back to the reason for this post: I’ve been
gorging tasting a lot of cake lately without the Having part, ’cause someone else is doing the baking, and serving me like a Queen.
I’m the mother of a future groom and the honorable wedding party was out tasting cake.
My kind of appointment.
