Black & Orange Swirled TruMoo Orange Scream Cupcakes

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.
- 1 cup butter
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 Tbsp TruMoo Orange Scream Milk
- Cream butter in a large mixing bowl.
- 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!

Again Mizz Joy, you have proven your genius self! I love this idea using the Tru Moo Orange Crème milk! AND, I have a coupon from my Sunday paper for it! Don’t you just love the holiday milk flavors? I recently tried Prairie Farms Peanut Butter Chocolate Milk. Tasted pretty good, and not heavy on the peanut butter flavoring side. OMG! I looked at Prairie Farms website and saw they had Jellybean flavored milk! I will have to try your tip using flavored milk for my cupcakes and frosting. Thanks a mil!!
FYI Joy: If you still have the cap to your milk bottle, looks like there is a contest to enter a code. Good luck! http://www.trumoo.com/promotions
Thank you so much, Kathleen! Yes, holiday milk is super fun! 😀 Thanks so much for the heads up on the contest!
That is too spooktacular…love the TruMoo suggestion. I can see myself adding vanilla ice cream to the TruMoo and making an Orange Scream shake…yum! I love the skeleton hands…are they free standing, or are they part of a whole skeleton? I saw some full size skeletons on a magazine, but whoa, the price was not in my range…though they did look awesome on this individual’s front yard and roof.
That sounds yummy too, Blue Rose! About the skeleton hands, I got them at Target. They were just a few dollars. They are just two hands that can be used to toss salad, things like that…or to serve yummy cupcakes in a creepy way. LOL!
Sorry, forgot to thank you for the tweezer information….got mine at Hobby Lobby, with a 40% off coupon…woohoo.
Woo hoo! Score on the tweezers!
