text-shadow: 0 0 5px #FFFFFF;

Gives a white shadow, with 5px blur. But it's too weak. Is there way to make it stronger(/lighter) without modifying blur?

White (#ffffff) is a white as it gets. Assuming the text is not black (#000000), you can darken the text and or darken the background to make the shadow look "lighter" (contrast).
