Brown Sugar - in a pinch, you can use regular sugar + molassas
Confectionary Sugar for the icings
Baking Soda - if you're out, don't forget that you usually have a box in the refrigerator
Vanilla - you can substitute all sorts of things for this if you need to, like orange or lemon juice, almond extract, and so forth
Butter or margarine
Applesauce - if you're out of sugar, try this instead
