Custom/Unusual Sized Baking Pans

I am looking for a pullman/pan de mie loaf pan that is 5x5 or 6x6 and can't seem to find anything larger than 4x4. Paderno makes a pan 5 7/8 x 4 but I'm looking for it to be absolutely square. Any tips, tricks, or hacks would be greatly appreciated!

Last year I experimented with making a large (Double) loaf by using the lid from a box that copier paper comes in.  I re-sized it and then stapled the sides together and line the lid with parchment paper.  It turned out well.

In your case I would get some light weight cardboard like kids use to make signs and science fair displays with (it might be called tag board).  Cut the card board to make your pans and staple them to keep their shape.  If you bake directly in the pan I would spray them with pan or some other non-stick spray or I would like the pans with parchment paper.


Best of luck, Dwayne
