Cherry Pound Cake

Sophia 3000


This is a fruit cake that will not be shoved in the back of the cabinet. Our family use to go to the mall and visit a candy store that sold differnt varieties of candies and dried fruit. My aunt brought what seemed to be tons of dried cherries to put in this cake, and to eat.
