Have you ever tried making Italian meringue or mousseline buttercream? While they use egg whites and butter vs egg yolks and cream, it still has an "airy" taste and texture. I didn't know if you chose pastry cream specifically b/c of the "light" texture but these would be worth trying if you didn't already have them in mind.
FYI - you can always sub milk or water for hvy cream in your reg icing recipes (that use powdered sugar) in my oponion. I do it all the time and the cream cuts the sweetness and also makes the icing just a little fluffier.

I hope this helps icon_smile.gif

Try a French BC using the egg yolks. That would give you the "eggy" taste of a pastry cream.
