its not uncommon to see some cakes use Mashed Potatoes, because often mashies are good for keeping the ingredents together with aid of the eggs which the eggs are a excellent blinding property (I mean keeping all the shit together without falling apart) and also the mashies gives the cake bit more of "body" and a great "filler" tool gives the cake bit of a filling not end up too "light" like these cheap cakes and they can "stretch" the cake receipe to make go further when there isnt much flour or shit like that......
