Makes no sense. You can have cake and eat it. The real saying goes eat your cake and have it too, which is quite a difficult task

The real saying is "have your cake and eat it too" (and the implication, according to my understanding, is not that it is a difficult task, rather that it is two levels of enjoyment - having AND eating - you can have the cake but then you may not eat it - that's too much to ask for.) Is English your first language? Bibi got it right, and English is not his first language...

The point of the line is that you can't physically eat it and still have it. If you can explain to me what enjoyment you have out of having a piece of cake you can't eat maybe well go with your interpretation :)

Furthermore, according to your understanding, shouldn't it simply say "you can have your cake but you can't eat it"?

So I'm going with Ergel on this one, though I always heard the line as have your cake and eat it too

No reason to get feisty.

Point well taken.
Though my main point was confirming the order of phrases in the saying, and the Wikipedia article verifies that.

I know that's the common usage. Just saying it doesn't make sense as wikipedia confirms and the actual source has it the correct way.
And again no reason to start name calling

Never meant to do any name calling; was curios if English was your first language, that's all.
