We made bread the other day. We set it out on the porch to rise and after an hour or so, the kids found it and started poking at it! Luckily we pulled them away before they did any real damage and the bread still turned out ok.
We have had to learn to never set things out where kids can reach it. We tried this with pies a few times and it seems kids would come take the pie, never tell us and then come home to ask where the pie was.
