I picked up one of these, cut it to fit between the stove top and range hood, and spray painted it black (they do come in black, but not all stores carry them in all colors, where I bought mine they only had the green):
When I want to take a pic, I set it up on the stove top with the 'wings' open (if you don't have a flat top you'll need to get another piece of cardboard as a base), turn on the light on the range hood, set up my cake and click away. when I'm done it folds up for storage. I plan to get another one and paint it white so that darker cakes will show up better.
