Place all ingredients, except the cream, in a large pot, and simmer until the pumpkin is soft. Remove the bay leaves.

Purée mixture in batches with a mixer or in a blender. Return the purée to the pot and on low heat, stir in the cream. Carefully heat the soup through, making sure it does not come to a boil.
