As you know there is a difference in cooking and baking. Substitutions can be made in cooking. Baking is a science and if a recipe calls for heavy cream, then heavy cream it should be. Gentle heat in a Bain Marie and heavy cream. This is one time where cost should not be the rule of the day. Heavy cream costs only a few cents more. Good luck and let us know how you make out.
