Doha Festival City, the largest entertainment, retail and hospitality destination in Qatar, managed and operated by Al-Futtaim, treated children of all ages to a cookie decorating event where they got a chance to get creative and design their own! Over the course of three days, hundreds of children had the chance to play expert with their very own Chef’s hat and apron, as they adorned cookies in the shape of Ommi Dolls and Camels. Cookies were decorated to take away as gifts this Ramadan, but many of the delicious treats never made it home!
