Where do I go to locate the text on a page built with CAKE?

Brand new to Cake, although I am pretty familiar with PHP.

Been given a job to clean up some files built using a Cake framework. Need to have everything done within the next day and a half. So, if there's any ninjas hungry for points, I guarantee I'll have several questions.

First one is basic. I need to change some of the text on some of the questions. Easy enough, but I don't know where to look. I know the page that needs to be changed, but where would I go to determine the actual text?

I know it sounds pathetically basic, but there it is?

Where do I look for the text?

Search the code would be my first thing. I don't know Cake, but as for ninja's...

Remember it isn't about knowing everything but just being able to ask the right questions.

Or, if you are a Simpsons fan, I'm following the Marge Simpson's Piano School method.


What are you looking to search / replace ?

Here is the canonical dialog that depicts the Marge Simpson Piano School method:

Homer: “But you don't play piano…”
Marge: “I just have to stay one lesson ahead of the kid.”

You know what? You're right! After reading through some tutorials, I was able to gain a basic understanding of how things were set up and I was able to figure out where the various files were.

Thanks!

BTW: I've got another question about password validation that is beating me up. Take a look at that if you're in the mood for some more points.
