comment Aligning plain `align` and `cases`?
@RyanReich: I told you I can't imagine such thing happening myself, so better ask Patrick himself. Imho it's contrary to the basic principles of proper programming.

comment Aligning plain `align` and `cases`?
@RyanReich: This is not just about nesting the usual way and I don't know what it really does: http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/30661/problem-with-nesting-environments/‌​30670#30670 I'm not sure it works at all.

comment Aligning plain `align` and `cases`?
@brannerchinese: I've heard that in (La)TeX it is possible to mix two environments, say you open env1, open env2, close env1 while inside env2 and finally close env2. I'm quite skeptical that works, and if it does, I think it's bad practice, beside being a stunt from the trickback of a TeX voodoo grandmaster. :)

Maybe you should consider updating MikTeX to the latest release (2.9)... MikTeX 2.5 was released in summer 2006 if I'm not mistaken.

comment Write inside divided circle
In case you absolutely need a TikZ figure, a less difficult way would be for you to use Inkscape, then use the plug-in for export to TikZ. The code is not optimal, but it will prduce exactly what you draw. (I don't remember exactly the link for the plug-in, but you can find it searching a bit in the posts on this site.) Or simply use a diffent software you are familiar with. TikZ has a quite steep learning curve... (Let this not discourage you though!)

comment Write inside divided circle
Ok, I see your problem. Still, you could have found out from the line \newcommand{\TikZFractionalCake}[6]{% Num, Denom, Color, Borders, Size, Text array that the third parameter you pass as an argument to \TikZFractionalCake later in the code (in my example white) is actually the background color of the pieslices. From your figure I see you need to change that, too. In addition the graphic has a sort of 'outer ring', which adds to the complexity. If this is your first TikZ project - well I must say I applaud your courage! :) -- continued in next comment because text length limit

@Nicolas: For wrapping the text, check the EDIT of my answer. As for the colors: you really don't like to read the code you get, don't you? What if someone posted a code that steals your credit card number, eh? Would you just run it without the blink of an eye, hm?

comment Write inside divided circle
That's funny, I can write into the slices full sentences... ;) like this: \TikZFractionalCake{10}{10}{white}{black}{5}{{Thank you very much},{text},{you},{wanted},{to},{insert},{7},{8},{9},{10}}. You might need to increase the diameter (argument 5) to accommodate all the sentence.
