Place cream, sugar and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugars are dissolved. Cut corn from cobs; add corn to saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 10 minutes. Transfer corn mixture to a blender; cover and process until pureed. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer into a small bowl; set aside.
