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

comment Write inside divided circle
@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.

Does that mean that biblatex does not like e.g. backticks?

comment Vector fonts with UTF-8 support?
@UlrikeFischer: Thanks for the clarification! I am aware that font encoding and input encoding are different things. Maybe the title of the post was misleading. I just wanted to say that I use UTF-8 input encoding and would like a vector font with appropriate font encoding to support all facilities offered by UTF-8. By the way: I see there is a cm-unicode font also. Wouldn't that be a better option than cm-super?

comment Combine shorten and bend option in TikZ
I'm not very sure I understood your problem correctly. It it that when shortened, your arcs will be less like circular arcs, but you would like to preserve it?

comment Is there an easy way to add hover text to all incidents of math mode where the hover text would contain the LaTeX code?
+1: I really am happy to see any efforts directed towards improving accessibility. I am working in the field and at the time being the support for screen readers, etc. is paltry. It is a real shame, because it is not a question of missing technology, but simply of good-will...

comment Chinese checkers board using TikZ
@cmhughes: I don't think that would really work. The circles are not in the corners/vertices of a square matrix, they are aligned along triangles.
