An Idiom that history attributes to Marie Antoinette the wife of King Louis XVI of France. Although, in actuality most scholars do believe that designation is a misnomer, the phrase is catchy.

The uneducated masses abuse the term: " wow, your team did a great job, "let them eat cake"! ( buys the team members a cake.)

The educated masses are aware of the mass inflation that was ravaging the French people at the time of the French Revolution, therefore the ingredients to purchase the items needed to make a cake would have cost a fortune. The idiom let them eat cake means "Screw them"
"You can't eat that! It's the last piece of cake!"
"Sure I can, I'm a Doctor, HaHaHa. Now, Let them eat cake!"
