Tip into a bowl with the melted butter and cream and mix well. Push the biscuits into an even layer into the base of the cake tin. In a separate bowl use an electric whisk to beat the soft cheese with the sugar. Then beat in the yoghurt then the powder milk. Then tip the mix on top of the biscuit base and smooth over the top.
