Preheat oven to 315°F. Prepare a bundt pan with nonstick baking spray, set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, attached to a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the butter for 2 minutes on high until pale in color. Add in sugar and salt and cream together for an additional 7 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl a couple times. Mixture will be very pale yellow and fluffy.
Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in flour, being careful not to over beat. Pour in Cherry 7 Up and mix just until combined. Fold in maraschino cherries.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 75 to 85 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then invert on serving plate. Cool completely before adding glaze.
Get out two bowls and put 1 cup of powdered sugar in each. To one bowl, add in cherry juice. Whisk until smooth. To the other bowl, add in milk, whisk until smooth.
Pour the white glaze over the top of the cake first. Then drizzle with the cherry glaze.
