Every home cook has those items that they automatically refill every time they run out. For many, flour, sugar and butter make the list. For Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne, founders of Georgetown Cupcake and stars of TLC's DC Cupcakes, staples get a bit more involved.

From bourbon vanilla to fresh lemon, the cupcake innovators tell us what they always have on hand in their kitchen. "With staples in our pantry and refrigerator, we can whip up a variety of different flavors of cupcakes in no time – as well as other desserts," they explain. "With these ingredients, you’ll be well prepared to tackle the majority of dessert recipes in your cookbooks."

Check out the slideshow above to see which 15 ingredients make their list!
