Hi, welcome!

I’ve never heard of a specific tool for this. Were they on the wind up? I would just use my trowel

Only rubber thing i can think of but wouldn’t be what I’d used for that tbh. Maybe the dildo was the best option

Usually just trowel but spied an old plastic waste paper bin amongst the house gutting rubbish , cut up with a Stanley and worked a treat , still finished with a trowel though
