Caulk exposed gaps in laminate and trim?

I am installing laminate and as you can imagine I have made a few mistakes in some places. I wasn't perfect in measuring and cutting as I installed under door jambs and things and now I have a few spots where there is a gap between the laminate and the jambs.

How would you best advise to cover/mask that hole? Caulk? Duct Tape? A small sign that says "My bad!"?

BEST advice is to not mask it Sorry! I'd definitely, definitely, uninstall and re-do it so there's no gap. Duct tape? No way...

If you undercut the jamb or casing too high - caulk
If the laminate doesn't reach the jamb - install a new piece of laminate.

or you could use duct tape and say you subbed the job out to McGyver

once the tongues and grooves have been locked in and then taken out, are they worthless?
