Unless this is a custom moulding you may be better off just replacing it. If it is a common moulding go to big box store and look at their contractor packs and see if you can match it.

It is definitely not custom molding...just plain BUT I figure there has to be some sort of wood spackle (like my all purpose joint compound) that is easier to use than the Elmers Wood Filler...eeeks.

You can use lightweight vinyl spackle. It has the consistency of dry shave cream. Easy to work with, dries fast, and is easily sandable. Not to be confused with vinyl spackle.

MH ready patch at HD or SW painters putty... it has more body than the lightweight, if you are filling in the tiny dents it should hold in better for sanding. tread lightly with the sanding.

on the base... Try using a small scraping knife/putty knife to run down and remove the paint/caulk edge. Put on new qtr or shoe prime and recaulk you should be good to go.
