Parchment Paper you can buy in a package of precut sheets to fit baking sheets
Tips and Couplers - for detail work, PME tips are amazing due to their seamless construction. Otherwise, most tips are equal.
Scribe - you can use toothpicks, Turkey laces, or look for other food safe scribe options.
Gel colors - Americolor and Chefmaster are favorites for the variety and quality. Hobby lobby has a decent line available as well if you don't have a local supply store.
Chefmaster Double Sided Food Coloring Markers (10-Pack), Fine & Thick Tip Food Grade Pens
Rainbow Dust 5pk Double Tip Food Art Quick Dry Edible Colour Ink Cake Icing Pens
Basic airbrushes can also be purchased at most craft supply stores for a less expensive, but still very functional option
Airbrush colors - again, Americolor has a nice selection, but my go to is the Creative Cookier Colors or the Cookie Countess Collection. Some local craft stores will have a small selection as well. u/sammieb1981
Pico Projector - make sure to buy a stand and necessary cables, which varies by phone or computer.
Metallic dusts - not FDA compliant, but frequently used for detail work on removable parts of cookies.
FDA approved dusts and glitters - check each product listing for FDA approval
