Finish work around window


We are finishing out basement and we have old basement windows with a 45 degree bevel of concrete from the cinderblock. I've framed up to the block but the concrete is still exposed. What's the best way to finish up to the window? Just run a board to the concrete bezel? With how the latch is setup I don't think it gives me many options to chip away the bezel to butt the board right up next to the concrete.

build up the framed sil so its level with the framing in the actual window opening. that way you can hide the concrete with either drywall returns or a wood jamb extension

I think I am going to just put a window box up to the concrete bevel and then caulk the gap between the concrete and the window box. any tips for touching up the concrete to make it smooth? I just have a small trowel is that not the right tool?
