Right-click mintMenu button > Preferences > Theme
Click down arrow next to Theme and change from the default "Desktop theme" to your theme.
I had to logout/in because the Update Manager icon and the Network Manager icon changed to a white background,
but after logging out/in, it was same dark background as the rest of the panel.
This worked for me in Mint 13 xfce using Xfce-dusk theme.

I had to copy the extracted folder to /usr/share/themes for it to show up in the mintMenu > Preferences > Theme list.
(Before I just copied the extracted theme folder to /home/username/.themes)
Logged out/in - then it worked.
This was Shiki-Midnight-Brave theme.

Curious it doesn't work for you.
What happens if you (temporarily) change the mintMenu icon to the same as mine:
Right-click mintMenu > Preferences > Main Button change Button icon to:
/usr/share/linuxmint/common/artwork/logos/24.png ... then close box and logout/in?
Does the icon's background change to the dark background then?
Edit - just tried it with your icon: /usr/share/xfcemint/visualisation-logo.png
Another idea - a stab in the dark -
In the mintMenu > Preferences > Theme screen .... is "Use custom colors" unchecked?
