Question mudding outside corners on short wall

We're remodeling our bath, have shortened the wall the shower stall is on and now have a short wall (just enough for the stall flange to be attached) with a closet on the otherside. How do we mud these corners? From the shower we have 3" on one side, the 4" thickness of the wall, and the approx 4" before the wall for the closet starts. Not enough room to feather out, plus we have metal beading on both corners of the 4" thickness.

Use a 6" knife and apply the mud over the entire strip. It won't need feathering out. It is ok to have a j/c veneer over the drywall.

j/c= joint compound

What I meant was you can completely coat the small strip of drywall with j/c - no need to feather it out, it just needs to be smooth from the edge to the corner.
