Half and half will not whip on it's own. Only Heavy cream will whip.

Some use half and half in their icing recipes for a bit of richness, instead of water or other liquids.

Another half and half reference can be half shortening and half butter.

Gloria2005, I use 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening as well as 1/2 & 1/2 in my icings. (both in the same batch) It does turn out a little richer/creamier with the 1/2 & 1/2. I myself can taste the difference. It doesn't take any longer to whip up than normal. give it a try, you might like it.
