Patch Ceiling with Pipe

My boyfriend and I are painting our basement pipes a bold color to add some decoration to the room. One of the pipes enters into the plaster ceiling halfway into the room and the plaster around the pipe is crumbling. You can see bits of plaster and insulation falling off. Is there any recommendation on a good way to patch this so it's a cleaner transition into the ceiling?

Welcome to the forums!

What kind of pipe and insulation is it? Yrs ago asbestos was used to insulate pipes and if it's asbestos you need to either have it removed properly or encapsulate it.
