If you're stacking, then you only need one board. Two is over kill because it's not the board that's supporting the cake, it's the dowels.

I would only double up on boards if you're making a 12" or more. Even then, if it's stacked, only one is needed because of the dowels. But for the bottom tier, I would use a stronger board.

So yes and no. I would double up or just use a wooden board for the base of your cake. The thing the entire cake will be sitting on. But between each layer, just one.
