1. Place potatoes and garlic cloves in a medium saucepan; add enough water to pan to cover potatoes. Cover; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer covered until potatoes are very tender, about 18 minutes.

2. Drain potatoes and garlic in a colander. Add cream and butter to same saucepan; place over low heat and stir mixture until butter is melted. Return potatoes and garlic to pan; add salt. Using a potato masher or hand held blender, mash potatoes until light and fluffy.

Note: potatoes may be prepared up to 24 hours before serving. Cool, cover and refrigerate potatoes before reheating. Chilled potatoes may be placed in a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip, piped attractively onto a microwave serving plate and heated in the microwave oven just before serving.
