Sift together flour, cinnamon and soda. Add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Pour batter into two 9-inch greased and floured pans. Bake at 350 degrees until firm to touch, about 40-45 minutes. Let cool in pans 5 minutes, then invert onto racks to finish cooling. Cool completely before layering and icing.
