Line a strainer with a chux cloth or muslin cloth. Fold together the cream and yoghurt and start layering by spooning about 1/5 of the yoghurt in the bottom of the strainer and smooth over the top. Lightly sprinkle with a little brown sugar. Continue layering with yoghurt and a little brown sugar ending with a yoghurt layer. Cover and place on a rack with a bowl beneath and place in the fridge.
