Yes, and your answer might be 'authoritative' when some new user is trying
to figure this out and Google leads to here!
In addition, here is the config for layouts: the WRAPPER path.
template:   "template_toolkit"
charset: UTF-8
          ENCODING: utf8
          INCLUDE_PATH: 'views'
          start_tag: '<%'
          end_tag:   '%>'
          WRAPPER: layouts/emails.tt

Then in app code, you can refer to a template using a layout like this:

   my $email_body = template( 'emails/activate.tt',
                                   real_name => $fields{ name },
                                   recipient => $fields{ name },
