If you use UUID’s…

Be extra careful to make sure that, according to convention, your ‘id’ column (or primary key) is:

char(36) and never varchar(36)

CakePHP will work with both definitions, however you will be sacrificing about 50% of the performance of your DB (MySQL in particular). This will be most evident in more complicated SELECT’s, which might require some JOIN’s or calculations.
