Making Halloween themed food is so much fun! Today I tried something that I’ve never done before. I made swirled cupcakes! You’ll be glad to know two things: They’re not difficult to make and you can substitute milk for water in a store bought cake mix. What’s the big deal about that? It makes them more moist. Today I’m using TruMoo Orange Scream Milk. It’s perfect for Halloween AND it’s low fat milk from your trusted dairy, which means it contains 8 essential nutrients. Each flavored milk is sweetened with just enough sugar and doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup, contains no artificial growth hormones, no HFCS. Fun and good for the kids!
I kept this recipe super simple. I bought a box of white cake mix at WalMart when I picked up my TruMoo Orange Scream Milk. Where the mix I was using called for water, I substituted TruMoo Orange Scream Milk. It turned the batter a slight orange color but I wanted it to be more vivid, so I added some gel food coloring. Gel food coloring helps you achieve vivid colors without diluting icings or batters. I halved the batter into two bowls adding orange to one and black to the other. Next, I dropped the batter in no particular order into a lined muffin tin. Simply bake following the box instructions and you have swirled cupcakes!
Look at that fun swirl! For a delicious icing, use TruMoo Orange Scream Milk in this buttercream icing recipe.

- Add remaining ingredients and beat at medium high until frosting is light and fluffy, approximately 5 minutes.
TruMoo Orange Scream milk adds a slight orange tastes to the icing. It’s so yummy!
Add some edible candy eyes to your cupcakes for a frightfully fun treat!
Spooky black sprinkles add to the overall fun effect. Have the kiddos help with these fun cupcakes. They can stir, pour the TruMoo Orange Scream Milk and have a glass of it to drink while they wait for the treats to come out of the oven!
