CakePHP is a free, open-source, rapid development framework for PHP. It’s a foundational structure for programmers to create web applications Compatible with PHP4 as well as PHP5. Following are the benefits of cakePHP:

Proper class inheritance – Cake has two main folders in each project. First one is the core lib /cake/, it works like peep show. The second folder is the Application specific one /app/. CakePHP inheritance is very sensible and understandable. All Application specific controllers extend AppController class which is empty, but can be extended with some extra logic or there one can predefine some core functions which he wants in specific way.
Easily extend with Components, Helpers, Behaviours and Plug-ins as it allow us to create parts of reusable code which is very helpful for more than one project.
Zero configuration – In CakePHP there isn’t single part of code /configuration/ where you need to specify the location of the library or the url of the site – everything is auto-detect and the only thing you need to care about is the Database connection settings.
Build in validation –validation of cakephp is really useful feature where one can attach multiple advanced validation rules to single field.
Ability to create tests –Cakephp provides ability to create tests which will help one to check the critical points in his applications. There are core tests, as well as custom ones, which one can build his own. It’s handy when one build a large application where some parts are critical and the performance should be checked carefully.
