On my Windows 7 x64 machine, I'd like to move the cached MSI files from C:\Windows\Installer (which is on my SSD) to a directory on my regular hard drive. (L:)

How can I accomplish this ?

Use the tool MoveAndLink to "move" folder to a different drive:

JunctionMaster is a small and simple shell extension that will allow you to MOVE and LINK a folder in one easy step. It focuses on MOVING the folder, then replacing the original folder with a hard link (junction) to the new location. Windows (and the user) can reference the files at the same location as before, but the actual storage of them is on the other drive. It is handy for new hard drives, and also in the case of SSDs where you may wish to redirect some folders with lots of RW activity to a conventional HDD.
