INGLÉS PARA NEGOCIAR: "HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT"
This idiom is very similar to "cherry picking" but slightly different. In this case, the main focus is that you don't want to compromise at all or that you just want the best of both worlds.
It is important to understand the word "compromise" here because it does not mean "compromiso". A compromise in English is a middle point between two extremes. So, if you want "to have your cake and eat it", you don't want to compromise!!!
It is important to notice that we mostly use this expression in the negative form. For example: "You can't have your cake and eat it, you need to compromise!"
Hope that helps!
