I got one of those science fair tri-fold boards at Walmart. I put a vinyl cloth on the table and place the tri-fold board around the work area. I've never had a problem with overspray that way. I also take narrow pieces of waxed paper and put them around the bottom of the cake, tucking in slightly, and pull them them when finished. This gives a clean edge to the cake.
