I have my icing colors, tips, bags, fondant smoother, extra fondant (when I color fondant and don't use it all I store in in my "kit"), fondant cutters, 2 different sized spatulas, dowels, scissors, and a few stray recipes that I use often.

I have icing colors, disposable bags, tips and couplers, several spatulas, a putty knife and high-density foam roller for smoothing, rolling pin, and a pizza cutter. These are the things I use most often.

Are you referring to a "emergency fix-it" kit that you take along to a wedding cake delivery? Or just a basic cake decorating equipment kit?

my delivery kit includes:

extra icing/fondant
disposable bags/ tips used in decorating the cake
small spatula, large spatula
scissors, knife (or X-acto)
masking tape, duct tape
dowels, or extra pillars
paper towels, kitchen towel, and a wet cloth in a zip-lock bag.
a large zip-lock bag for dirty items used
an extension cord (labeled w/ my name!)
a small measuring tape
a small level
a doorstop!
business cards
and of course, the camera!

You need your basic tips..
And others you might use a lot.
A fondant smoother
flower nail
bags of your choice
viva paper(to fix your cake)
spatula of your choice
transparent tape
cups for mixing colors(if you are traveling)
crisco(if you are working with fondant)
cornstarch (if you are working with cornstarch.
a surface to work on.
The rest depends on what you are working for..
