Is Coca-Cola cake a product of wartime privation?

My favorite dessert of all time is carrot cake, partly because it is delicious and partly because it has a good story, which you may already know. It was created during WWII in England when sugar and butter was rationed. Cooks grated carrots into their cake batter. (I'm assuming they went without the buttercream icing that's on it now.)
So, I was telling this to a friend and he said that he was under the impression that Coca-Cola cake was the product of a similar set of circumstances. I, on the other hand, can't imagine that people who were short of anything so basic as sugar would have access to Coke.
Does the hive mind know when Coca-Cola cake was first created...?
