CakePHP form helper - HABTM multiple checkbox styling

I have two tables restaurants n cuisines which are related to each other as HATBM table

cusinies have certain fixed entries - 54 number

i restarurant can hve any number of cuisines. on baking the application this came with a multiple select.
since i wanted check boxes i used array( 'type' => 'select', 'multiple' => 'checkbox') to convert it into checkboxes.

now i want to style the way this checkboxes are displyed into coloumns of 4 as below.

echo $form->input('Cuisine', array('type' => 'select', 'multiple' => 'checkbox'));

the above code produces many div's around each element as follows

what i tried ?

echo $form->input('Cuisine', array( 'type' => 'select', 'multiple' => 'checkbox', 'div' => false, 'label' => false));

but this code only removes the outside divs and label. i am nota ble to control the internal


how to gain access through form helpers to remove or class the internal div for my custom styling.
or is there any other way to populate this HABTM table to get what i want.
