Bundle the sweet potato and onion in cheesecloth or a tea towel, and working over the sink or a bowl, wring and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Discard the liquid.
Mix sweet potato and onion in a large bowl with flour, baking powder, salt and pepper until fully coated, then mix in eggs.
Fill a pan with 1/4 layer of vegetable oil and heat on medium-high until a drop of water causes the oil to spit and pop.
*** You don't have to use that much oil. With this method you'll get a crisper texture which is my fav, but obviously a bit less healthy. You can use just a small amt of oil (tablespoon or so) and they will still be delicious. If I'm making them for myself, I'll just use minimal oil... making for others for the first time, I'll use the larger qty of oil :) ****
Working in small batches so the pan does not overcrowd, drop in sweet potato mixture 1 1/2-2 tablespoons at a time, flattening each latke gently so that you have patties approximately 2? in diameter.
When the edges are starting to brown and the underside is a deep golden, gently flip each latke with a slotted spatula and fry until both sides are crispy.
Remove from a pan and let drain on a wire rack with paper towels underneath.
Freeze for the week, or eat that evening.
Combine mascarpone, cream and maple syrup.
Whip with a hand-mixer until you get a thicker texture that you could scoop out with a spoon w/o it being runny.
Top with smoked salmon and chives or scallions.
