Cover with 1 cup of brandy. Cover and let fruit mixture marinate overnight. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Coat the insides of 2 9x5 loaf pans with cooking spray and set aside. In a stand mixer, cream butter & sugar until fluffy. Beat in salt, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg & baking powder. Add eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each addition. In a medium bowl, whisk flour & cocoa together. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Add the syrup and beat gently to combine. Remove bowl from stand mixer and use a spatula to fold in juice, soaked fruit and nuts until well combined. Divide the batter between 2 prepared loaf pans, filling them about 3/4 full. Divide remaining cherries and arrange on top of both loaves. Place pans on middle oven rack and bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 2 hours and 10 minutes. Remove pans from oven and let them sit for 5 minutes. With a sharp paring knife, carefully loosen edges of each cake and invert onto wire racks to cool. Brush cooling cakes with 1/4 cup rum/brandy each. When completely cool, wrap fruitcakes tightly in double layer of plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 8 weeks.
