HI

Is your tent going to be a topper for your cake or is the cake going to be the actually tent?

If your tent is going to be a topper, i would use gumoaste and cut out the sides, back and top of the tent and them them dry for days until rock hard then glue them together with either chocolate or royal icing. Then let that dry for days and decorate from there. Mb with some very thin pieces of faondant to simulate drapes for the tent as well as the entry way of the tent.

Out of cake: mb making rounds instead of square?sheets, unless thats the shape you want and then cover in fondant then decorate like above, be sure not to make the fondant decorating pieces too heavy.
I hope this makes since bc I can ramble sometimes, LOL.

HTH

How about using a dolly varden tin to make it look like tent, you may need to do some carving work. And make it look like the curtain is half open and a clown and some characters peeping out of it.

I made a topper circus tent out of rice krispee treat. Then covered in white fondant. Added red stripes, a black door, and more white fondant as a swag around black door for the "opening" of the tent. I think mine went on top of a 10 or 12" round cake. Just put a dowel under it as the rkt can be heavy.
