Four centuries ago, Miguel de Cervantes wrote the original (and thus, correct) expression: "You cannot eat your cake and have your cake; and store’s no sore." (from Don Quixote, part ii. chap. xliii)

The expression is correct as stated and there is no "then" implied. It accurately points out that one can not eat something.. and still have it. Once gone it is gone. Properly used to describe people who want it all.

This one usually irritates me as well...I generally hear people say this about "bisexuals." When used for other reasons than that, then it doesn't bother me as bad...
