Concrete Problems

After pouring a concrete step, I removed the forms only to find that, towards the bottom, the concrete did not fill in all the way to the form. So it looks like a bunch of craters in the side of the step. What's the proper way to fix this?

Can I just fill it in with more concrete, almost like patching plaster?

Does the filler have to be extra thick so it will stay in place until it dries?

Concrete Problems

You can use masons mix and trowel in the defects.....I am assuming you are talking about exposed aggregate and nothing more?
