Never a great idea to just try and patch it.
Where was this trim?
Ah, the wisdom of Joe Caption. Joe is right, by the time you remove the rotted wood, prep it for a repair, do the repair, prime, and paint, you could have put in a nice, new piece of trim and be done with your job. The problem with patching is that unless you use an epoxy that moves along with the wood, it will pop out in a few short years and you are back to square one. P.S. Bondo is the absolute worst material to use for a repair. If any moisture gets to it, it pops.
