I've played around with this too -- the shadow, without offset, isn't strong enough for what you want.

Ideally there would be a "size" slider for the shadow so you could scale it out a bit as well as blur it.

Two ideas from me:

1. Shadows can have colour AND opacity adjusted in the colour panel, just like other fills -- make sure your shadows are at 100%. That will help a bit more.

2. Depending on the font you are using, you could align two copies -- one underneath that is bold, white and has the white shadow and the one on top that isn't bold, and is the colour you want. This, with some kerning, creates a bit more outline. Not a great solution, and my tests this morning worked, but not perfectly.
