Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease a 9-inch tube pan; line with wax paper and grease again (or use generously greased and floured 10-inch fluted tube pan). Sift together flour, baking soda; set aside. In large bowl, combine remaining ingredients; blend in dry ingredients. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 1 hour and 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes. Turn out of pan. Garnish with glazed cherries.
