Even though I'm not a physicist, I don't agree with "deepthought". A change in the shadow is a change in the propagation of light, and does carry information, it is not possible for the change of light propagation to travel faster than light, it travels at light speed.
Back to the OP, from my understating of quantum entanglement, it is not transfer of energy, you have no control whatsoever on the collapse of the wave function so u can't transfer information either. it is akin to the following analogy:
Suppose you and your friend have two boxes, each has an apple, one green and one red and you both know that for sure. Each takes a box and travels to a distant location, the moments one of you opens his box knows what is in the other box instantaneously.
Although there is a slight difference between the two scenarios since the interpretation of quantum mechanics says that the wave function collapses only at the experiment, while here the two apples had a specified state prior to the experiment. What happens at a deeper level and how two distant related events happen instantaneously I know nothing about.
