    Remove the old crumbly stuff and using cement patching compound, mix up according to the bag, and patch, wetting the old cement first. You may need to make a dam around what you are repairing with some plywood. In my experience, the prep is the most important-- make up forms for the border and it becomes more like filling a cake pan than trying to be a sculptor.

    I agree with Roxaneg - in particular about doing the prep work. Take the time to build those forms because, in the end it will look so much better and it will last longer.
    Good luck!
