Comentarios:
Bizcocho can appear like a bisque firing for majolica (before the glaze is applied and fired), however the surface of bizcocho usually smoothed and finished, and the paste is normally harder than majolica bisque. Although it continued to be produced and used in Spain until at least the nineteenth century, itís occurrence in the circum-Caribbean region seems restricted to the first half of the 16th century.
