Best way to bake a sweet potato in the oven?

The exact temp or time does not matter so much as simply covering them with foil when you bake them. My potatoes always came out dry and tough until I learned that simple trick. Just tearing off some foil and laying on top works just fine.

What's a good substitute for heavy cream?

Well, I just used some whipped cream as a substitute for heavy cream to make a lemon tart. Whipped cream's fat content is close to that of heavy cream. There are some unnatural items they put in the whipped cream but beggars can't be choosers.
