Caulk and Sealing... a large uneven gap?

Hi,
I am caulking my bathroom sink. The sink back and/or wall is rather uneven..... and so there's quite an uneven gap between the sink countertop and the sink.

In some places it's almost a 1/2 inch, and in others maybe an 1/8 inch.

Any ideas?? Should I just caulk or seal as always?

Please look at my pics here and you'll see what I mean:

Thanks In Advance!!!

I would consider taking a piece of trim and painting it to match the sink or wall and scribe to fit the wall. The even edge of 3/4" thick trim would sit 1/4" on the sink, the scribed back would follow the wall, caulk along the sink and along the wall and paint the caulk to match the trim. It would look much neater than all that caulk.

I would also trim along the side of the cabinet to meet the wall.

Hope this helps.
